boonie hat

Tantum x Deadline wants to profit off your nostalgia with this woodland camouflage bucket hat:

Tantum-Deadline-Camo-Bucket-Hat

Let me make one thing clear to you military guys that aren’t so much fashion guys yet… you know your camo boonie hat?  IT’S NOT A BUCKET HAT.  I’m sick of people (fine one guy I overheard in a surplus store) calling boonie hats bucket hats.  A boonie hat is about as much bucket hat as a New Era fitted is a cowboy hat.  I’m not even going into the details why, because explaining things to menswear newbs is way below my paygrade… just google images both and educate yourself.

Go ahead, look at pics from your childhood and revel in how you rocked those OshKosh B’gosh buckets like it was nobody’s business.   Pure toddler steeze, g’d up from the feet up; back when all you did was eat, sleep, and destroy shit.  Who doesn’t want those days back?  I think it’s at least worth a try to re-live that part of your life by picking up one of these bucket hats for your fatter head.
