Any modification someone knows to secure a hat during moderate winds?

Sometimes when walking in moderate winds, a hat
needs to be held by the brim to not tilt or fly away. Does
anyone know of a modification to a hat (wide-brim) to
prevent it?

Thanks...

Had no idea, so I did a little searching and found this idea. You'll have to get some thin cording or upholstery thread would work. Get a needle with a large eye (to thread the end thru) and sew one end inside the hat somewhere. If it has a band, sew it to that. Then thread the other end thru a button that can attach to (thru) a buttonhole on a shirt or jacket. The button should be large enough to not be able to come out of the buttonhole.
You can get all these things at a Joann's or Hancock's Fabric store.
