Kino wanted to look like a man of dignity who should not be taken for granted.

Kino put on his large straw hat and
felt it with his hand to see that it was properly placed, not on the
back or side of his head, like a rash, unmarried, irresponsible man,
and not flat as an elder would wear it, but tilted a little forward to
show aggressiveness and seriousness and vigor.
