    Pith helmet


    The Pith helmet (or the Shola, Topee or Solacot, as it is sometimes known) is the ultimate hat for tropical jaunts. Crafted from cork, the helmet has cooling properties thanks to its air vents and cotton covering. The wide puggaree and thin tan leather chinstrap pay homage to the traditional styles of the early 19th century.

    Spot-clean using a damp absorbent cloth and leave to dry at room temperature.
