I am messing around today with my Southeast Asia fashion. I’ve just about decided to take the Akubra Fed IV in heritage fawn. It’s replaceable, fun to wear and performs well against the elements. It also adds a certain urban flair to my otherwise somewhat spaghetti western getup (I’m actually thinking about Jodorowski’s “El Topo” when I say that).

This outfit is typical of what I wear in Southeast Asia. I do like the aesthetic (though of course it’s not for everyone) but mostly this is all about real protection from specific elements: the heat and humidity, the sun, and the mosquitos.

The harem trousers are a Thai design (at least, I’ve never seen them anywhere else). They have “wings” at the bottom that open on the sides when I am active but lie down and close off the legs when I am at rest. Absolutely brilliant balance between air flow and mosquito protection.

The shirt is a cheap cotton but the cape and trousers are a very sturdy almost hemp-like cotton used in high quality Thai hill tribes clothing. Very cool in the day and warm at night.

Not everyone’s cuppa tea, but I tell you what - dengue fever ain’t no joke.
Now that is one outfit with a Fedora we've never seen before on the FL, Nathan.

Love it, my friend!

This was, perforce, a pretty crappy day, for reasons that don't need to be enumerated. About the ONLY good thing about the day was me wearing my 60s-vintage #1 Quality Stetson. So, being a reasonable, and logical person, I'm continuing to wear it in the house tonight, hoping it'll help drain a little more suck out of my mood before bedtime.

Supposed to be sunny today here.. thought I wear something a bit larger than usual. So the old Akubra Lawson gets the call this morning. Have had this hat since about 2008 if I remember correctly... Its faded a bit lighter shade over time, but has held up really nicely. It was my first Akubra. One of my favorite hatbands of all times (braided kangaroo)
