    Hello,

    I'm not sure if I understood the above-mentioned expressions correctly. I suppose that "plattgekloppte Hüte" are old huts that flattened out < ... > , however I am not sure. Duden has not helped me.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Regards,
    Kaja

    Exgerman, thank you for the answer.

    "Die Männer tragen Bärte bis zu den Knien runter (was sich gewaltiger anhört als es ist, weil wir es hier mit einer kurz gewachsenen, eher breiten Rasse zu tun haben), darüber haben sie plattgekloppte Hüte oder Kappen aus braunem, narbendurchfurchtem Leder, ringsherum mit Wappen verziert. Die Stimmung ist sakral. Man wartet auf den nächsten Jodler"

    Author describes the yodelling festival in Switzerland and his style is very ironic. < ... >
