topee definition and meaning

What is a "topee"?

A topee is a type of hat that is traditionally worn in hot and sunny climates. It is typically made of lightweight materials such as cotton or straw and has a wide brim to provide shade for the face and neck. The topee is usually beige or white in color to reflect the sun's rays and has a distinctive shape with a rounded crown and a creased top. It is commonly worn by military personnel, explorers, and outdoor enthusiasts in places such as India, Africa, and the Middle East. The topee is also known as a pith helmet or sun helmet and is often associated with colonialism and the British Empire.
