To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If I say this is a really nice hat for the money, it sounds like I'm talking it down which is to do it a disservice. This is a nice quality hat, with a good felt - it doesn't look like a child's dressing up item. There's enough snap to the brim that it stays in place, but enough pliability that one could easily "train" it to one's preferred presentation. The dimensions are just wide enough to suit a brim-down trilby, or a brim-up full-on porkpie without looking ridiculous in either instance even if this is necessarily something of a compromise.
The colour sits nicely with a camel coat or mac, and the tidy (and very classy-looking) tri-tone band means that it will lend itself to a decent palette of outfits. The yellow plume is more of a challenge in this respect, but at least it's detachable (actually detached as delivered, so you don't have to mutilate your new acquisition on day one, which always feels wrong). On the plus side, with a little imagination and perspicacity, one could easily substitute a different colour in here to pop or coordinate to your preppy little heart's content.
Fit is perfectly as expected, and the item arrived carefully packaged and in tip-top condition. It is, obviously, not for everyone. However, if this is for you then I doubt you're reading this and you'll have snapped one up already (no pun unintended). If you're not sure, then live a little and have a punt - for fewer than thirty pounds you can't go wrong. Even if you only learn that you're not yet ready.
I love it. Autumn in New York on my noggin. Huzza thrice.
Wirklich schöner Hut, sehr gut verarbeitet und greift sich wirklich toll an. Eine Kleinigkeit : für 60cm ist er etwas klein geraten, aber da ich derzeit ja ohnehin keinen Friseur besuchen kann, meine Haare wachsen und mein Kopfumfang noch mehr wird trage ich ihn einstweilen viel in der Wohnung. Und wenn meine Haare irgendwann nach überstandener Corona-Krise wieder kurz sind müsste er durch die Dehnung perfekt passen :-)
