A Real Deal Brazil Ramble in the Cambodian Temple Ruins

We received the coolest set of pictures yesterday from Real Deal Brazil recycled-tarp hat owner Phil Caldwell, a small-animal veterinarian and aspiring writer living in Los Angeles. Phil recently took a trip to Cambodia, accompanied through several of the formidable ruins of the ancient Khmer Empire by his trusty RDB hat.

"I used it while I toured the temples such as Angkor Wat near the town of Siem Reap," Phil writes. "The hat survived extreme heat, humidity and countless children asking to wear it."

For Phil's well-written, way-fun insights about his Cambodian trip, his second visit to the temple-dotted Asian country, check out his own
blog post.

Now, check out these great photos he sent us!

Real Deal Brazil Facebook Page Gets Big Photo Facelift

What the blazes is going on in that picture over there? We don't know, but we love it all the same!

We recently got wildly behind on posting fan-submitted photos on the Facebook site, so in the last few days, Frank, our Site Administrator Guy, has been feverishly working to get photos posted. The result: Lots of fun new content reflecting both the dedication and diversity of RDB fans. Hope you'll stop by for a peek!

And if you like what you see, and love your own hat and how it looks on ya, then by all means, send along a picture of the two of you together, to We'll proudly post it, rest assured!
