The modern bucket hat is derived from a tropical hat made from olive drab cotton that was issued to the US Army during the Vietnam War. These lightweight hats became popular among civilians for use in sports such as fishing, and as sun protection.  Gil Scott-Heron can be seen over the years in a variety of Bucket Hats he styled.  Gia, his daughter hand crafts Gil's iconic look...The Bucket Hat.
