Afghan Hat

John Couper just returned from a trip to Afghanistan and brought me back a very cool flat topped hat similar to that worn by Ahmad Shah Massoud, the Lion of the Panjshir. For more information on Massoud and a photograph of him wearing the hat go to the link below.

Here is a better picture of Massoud in color this time. It also has a short explanatory note about the hat which is known as a Pakol.
