    Seems like everyone is wearing the same style/type of hat in the audience.

    I've noticed it for the last few years. Looks like a bowler/fedora type of hat.

    Are these provided for the crowd under their seats or something? Where can I find one for sale? I like it.

    It's called a canotier, if I'm not mistaken

    I'm sure you can find some not too expensive wherever you are.

    They're for sale in the official RG site (check the "online shop" bit to the right of the homepage). I guess they sell them on the grounds too. They're very expensive though; the better-looking model is 90€ and the other one 45€.

    The hat you see on most folks is the "Trilby" hat sold for 45€ on site.......the 90€ version is vey nice and made from imported straw from Ecuador ( I sh*t you not) it's on the freaking label. Many of the folks you see wearing the hats are VIPs and notice most all are in suits / very well dressed...they get the hats for free and it's part of the seating package.

    I think BNP Paribas (the bank sponsor for RG) distributes them in the VIP loges
