Originally worn for protection in Ireland by fishermen and farmers, this casual and comfortable hat is universal today. Also known as a fishing hat, this soft floppy hat worn by men and women alike has a wide downward sloping brim.
Probably the most famous example of the bucket hat is the hat worn by Gilligan from the television show "Gilligans Island." In the 1980s, these hats gained popularity with the introduction of rap music into pop culture. Prominent music icons, such as the members of Run DMC and LL Cool J, wore these hats regularly. Today bucket hats are popular with urbanites and country dwellers alike. They come in a number of fabrics including oilskin, cotton, terrycloth, furgora, and linen.
