Seeing as real slouch hats are expensive, I thought to try and make a cheap version, £7 "Jacura" hat from eBay (made in China, of course!) which unfortunately you can't buy in khaki colour, so got one in mid brown. Had some khaki spray, from Halfords knocking around........so went ahead and sprayed it! Did put on some undercoat as well which was a sand yellowish colour, did think that that might work on its own.....but it didn't!
Couple of coats of khaki not too bad, had a little bit of greenish khaki material left over from anther project, so proceeded to try an fold up a pugaree band, didn't come out too bad for first attempt.

It even performs its original intention! Just been wearing it for the last hour, great sun hat!
