Why do they not use the chinstrap properly?

What is the deal with the chin strap resting in front, rather than going under the chin, in a lot of ceremonial hats? Like the typical British Bearskin hat. Having the strap sitting in front like that seems totally useless and impractical.

It seems even the WWI British helmet was also worn like this? It is bugging the shit out of me.
