      • Built to last. While the other guys cut corners on quality to increase their margins, we don't believe in that. Even if you sweat a lot, it won't hurt the hat. This is thanks to an integrated sweat band that comes with every hat. Rain isn't a problem either. All our hats are also extremely resistant to water; rain will simply run off. Our strictest quality standards is garanteed to last a lifetime.

      • Hat will hold its shape. The Brookside Straw Sun Hat is guaranteed to hold its shape, and will not stretch/shrink with everyday wear. Please do not mistreat our hats, however, by leaving them locked in a car on a 90° summer day. But, even in that worst case scenario, the hat shape can be restored by resting it on a coffee can.

      • Perfect fit, guaranteed. Did you accidentally order the wrong size? Don't sweat it. We'll make sure you get a hat that fits like a dream, even if we have to send you 3-4 hats ‘til we get it right. We'll even pay for all shipping charges!

    Sizing

    Love the hat, the quality is exceptional as well as the style. I am normally a medium with a 7 1/8 head size and I needed to send the medium back for a large as the medium was tight and did not sit properly on my head. The large was much better, but I needed to utilize one the foam spacers to make it perfect.

    Beautiful and comfy

    In love with this hat. At first I didn’t know if I liked this more or less than my other hat by you but after a week o already know I love this one the most. It’s so comfy on the head and keeps the sun out of my eyes and is stunning to look at.
