Paper Hat Parasol for Men Serves as Shield from Sun or Rain
Protection from sun or rain is provided by a paper parasol that slips over the top of men’s hats and is held by a rubber band or piece of elastic. The flaps that hang over the brim can be folded in nine different ways, thus shielding the wearer at any desired angle while the exposed portions of the shade may be printed with advertisements. Special styles are manufactured also in thin sheet rubber with rigid side strips, while those made from ordinary paper or with cheesecloth backing have been found serviceable even in heavy rains. When not in use, the parasol can be folded up and placed in the pocket.
