Authentic Mexican Clothing - Sombrero

Mexican sombrero is probably the most famous traditional Mexican peace of clothing.

In fact, the Sombrero is one of the most famous Mexican trademarks even though there are many other Mexican trademarks such as the Mariachi, Tequila, Mexican peasant dress, Mexican huaraches, and of course traditional and authentic Mexican food.

In any event, the Sombrero is the Mexican hat with very distinguishing features: pointed crow, extra-wide brim (wide enough to cast a shadow over the face, neck and shoulders) and very colorful designs.

Nowadays, it seems that the Mexican sombrero is getting smaller or to be more precise its crow is less pointed and its brim is less wide. This mainly the case in the industrialized parts of Mexico because people that live in the cities are not working in the fields so there is no need for the authentic Mexican hat (Mexican sombrero).

Mexican peasants are still using the original and traditional Mexican clothing including the sombreros, Mexican peasant dresses, huaraches, rebozos, and many other peaces of authentic Mexican clothing.

In fact, the rural Mexican areas are a living and the best preserved museum of traditional Mexican culture where the authentic Mexican food is served, traditional Mexican music is listened to, traditional Mexican games are played and the traditional Mexican clothing is the main stream fashion.

Even though the traditional sombrero hat is rarely seen in Mexican urban areas the authentic sombrero is still one of the leading Mexican national and cultural symbols.

This is the reason why the sombreros are mandatory for every national Mexican celebration such as the Mexican Independence Day.

As one street salesman told me on one hot Mexican day in Mexico City There is no Mexican that doesnt have at least one sombrero at home therefore if you wish to blend in modern Mexican way of living buy this traditional sombrero hat and put it on your head on every traditional Mexican celebration.
