I remember when I was in Panama, and how tall the hats that the soldiers of the once-upon-a Panamanian Defense Forces were. Lots of armies in Latin America had soldiers wear tall hats like this:
|Is that a very tall you’re wearing, or are you just happy to see me?|
But I’ve never seen any army whose generals and officers wear hats quite as giant as those of the Korean People’s Army. Those aren’t hats, they are giant soup bowls with brims. They are almost sombreros. I wish I knew where the style came from, because I don’t think Soviet Army officers wore giant mixing bowl hats. I don’t think anyone’s army officers wore hats quite that big.
