Before we know it, festival season will be upon us, which can only mean one thing, you need a new bucket hat!

And this fine specimen from Aquascutum ticks all the boxes, firstly it’s been made by one of my all time favourite Casual labels. Secondly its water repellent, and thirdly it looks the bollocks!

And let’s not forget that this is a truly practical bit of festival kit! As previously mentioned its water repellent (which is often needed during the Great British summertime). It’s also been made from 100% Merino Wool, which will keep your nut nice and warm when things cool off in the evening.

Now I am probably gunna risk the wrath of the old school Casual Fraternity here when I say that Aquascutum (after several ownership sagas) is back to its brilliant best.

And with prices of the vintage gear soaring online, it’s well worth dipping your toe into the water this season to snap up some of the sumptuous schmutter on offer.

If you don’t believe me then head over to their official website and find out for yourself!
