Attached herein are pictured six straw hats from a 1941 color ad promoting the Stetson Straws that appeared on the glossy pages of one of the more bourgeois American magazines just seven and a half months prior to the day when the bombs fell on Pearl Harbor and the bad-old days of World War II kicked-in for that rare breed of man known as homo-Americanus.

There can be no doubt that the fun-loving fashion-fan who was pictured sporting these organic lids would soon find himself wearing one of Uncle Sam's over-laundered denim stitch-brims as he sat peeling potatoes while on K.P. duty, remembering all the while the day that this ad was shot.

We hope he survived the carnage.
