Welcome to the Forum Rdreamer.

"Sombrero" just means "hat". As many people wear hats in Argentina as they do in the US, England, or most likely wherever you come from.

Me, I'm very smart, so I wear a special kind, specially when writing at the Forum:

Now my dear Mother in Law, she wears her lagarti-sombrero, specially when she knows she'll see me.

Must be because she loves me so much!

Seriously Rdreamer, it might interest you to know (or you may already know) that "sombrero" has as its root "sombra"... guess that's pretty obvious, but just wanted to make sure for myself!
