I love this hat. I did not quite want a fedora, but something similar that was a little less formal. This is a perfect compromise! It can be worn casually or with a nicer outfit. The first hat shipped to me unfortunately had a little damage, but when I called to report that, staff were quick to ship another one to replace it. It feels like it's a little larger than the measurements given, but because the band is adjustable, it fits fine.
This is the best packable hat I have ever owned (and I have had scores). Found this hat in a catalogue in June 2016 and I am only getting ready to replace it now. It is not really worn out. It is just too dirty, from my travels and two very hot California summers.
This is one of only three hats I ware almost daily. This hat was first purchased for an extended trip to Italy and the Adriatic. It came home almost like new.
An extremely stylish hat
Not too soft and not too hard
Worth it just for all the compliments I am receiving :)
Really great hat with good shading from the sun.
