I wear panamas when it's hot and sunny.  I'm on my third or fourth; the 
last one disintegrated due to sweat around the band. You just have to 
get them with a small, flexible brim so it flexes instead of levitating 
the hat.  Of course, it has to fit pretty tightly as well.

On cooler days, I wear my trusty, well, I'm not sure what you'd call it 
(photo attached).  It's clean, but stained; my SO absolutely HATES it.  
Face, ears, neck, etc. get SPF 100 sunblock.
