I am in the market for my first hat and really need some help with a few things. I'm looking at straws since summer is coming, and that's about as far as I've gotten. So many styles, so many makers, how do you choose? And while we're at it, what about the different bashes and such? Why choose one over the other? I 'm sure this has all been covered somewhere, but I can't find it. Any help is appreciated!
