Topic: Looking for a specialty hat - any ideas?
Message: Posted by: Fineous (Apr 25, 2007 09:57PM)
I was wondering if anyone can point me to a dealer that sells a "swami" hat - the bigger the better. You know, the kind Ali Bongo wears, or better yet, what Johnny Carson wore as the Great Karnak. Any color is good, but it needs to look real and not just be a turban. Any dealer out there with an internet address? Any help will be appreciated...

Check out the following link. About 1/2 way down the page is a "swami hat." It might be just what you're looking for.

Thanks Mark. I was looking for something a bit bigger - almost pillow like. I'll probably go with that one if I can't find any others...

Here are a couple of other links that might work for you.

About 1/2 way down is a Swami Turban Hat, just below the Viking hats:

This also looks like the same thing:

You might email them to find out just how big these are. Let us know what you are able to find out.
