The question that looms mid-air is "To bobble or not to bobble!
There is a stigma or a fear that the bobble makes the male farmer look less masculine or dare I say it silly looking? However, it is not there to make people who wear them look a bit silly. It's original function was to protect sailors' heads from getting bashed when they bent down under things.
Did you know the word pom-pom derives from the French word pompon and was adopted in the late 19th century to refer to what you think of when you think of a pom-pom today: a little puff of fabric or feathers or whatever. Proper pom-pom hats were used as part of the military uniform of Napoleon’s infantry, where their colour denoted the company to which the man belonged: green for the first company, light blue for the second, orange for the third, and violet for the fourth.
