Around here, the only people with straw hats are the Amish.

And could denim be the new leather for Bono? Denim jackets seem to be making multiple appearances, while leather is hardly to be seen.

I like the straw hat and Bono's "new" look.
It could be Bono giving us hints that the
Daltons may make an appearance soon?

Most of the time, he looks cute in it and the hat's OK in the right context (ie South of France vacation) but it's weird to see it in Dublin where the weather is not warm. If he wants to work the cowboy hat look, he should get an alternate, colder weather version.

I have more issue with the clunky, industrial sandals. I know he likes to pick up a couple of inches in height via the shoes but, please, find something that looks better! Adam always has great sandals on, maybe he needs to take Bono shopping?

Shy -- I don't think that hat's really in fashion anywhere else besides Bono's head!

Me too. I go up to 50spf and still I burn.

Maybe I should think about getting a straw cowboyish style hat?

okay, my many reasponses to the thread. dude i agree on the sandals. lol. theyre a bit platformy for me. i think bono is looking better in the hat as he loses weight. when he was gettin kinda doughy the hat made his head look fat. the look was good on him when he was younger. personally i liked the camo hat better. but hey, its his head and i think hes sexy no matter what he puts on it. hmmm i thought i had more to say but i think i forgot.... oh yeah, where i live the hat would be in fashion to wear anywhere but thats because i live in hickville around a bunch of rednecks and cowboys. bono would love it

I've seen lads and girls wearing similar hats all around here in Canada.. I actually have one.. it's me weekend cottage hat same as the one with Bono's beads but prolly a bit older saves me doing the hair and fits in with the laid back cottage country I live in during the summer , I always see people at resorts with em too. They've actually made it back into fashionable head attire in Toronto .. they are all over the stores like Holt Renfrew

Brad Pitt!? Are there any celebrites that Bono doesn't know?

Poor Bono! He's so famous, he has to dress like Bono at the beach. Either that, or he knows he would burn to a crisp with that skin tone...
Oh, Bono, I feel your pain. Damn genetics.

i quite like the hat, think it looks pretty cool actually (i must be the only one)

i do agree on the shoes though - the platform sandals are quite corny. every knows bono is 6ft or anything close and its not like and inch on the shoes is really gonna make that much difference. normal sandals would be cool i reckon (like adam)

I like the hat too...I almost bought a green one somewhat like it...but i have no where to wear it.
I wonder if the objects ...like the hat the jackets become somewhat comforting to people like bono who are always on the road and stuff.
maybe the hat was a gift ....? i wonder if they still employ a stylist for non tour times.
this hat causes me to wonder.
ill continue to wonder until i get some answers!
