    Cool Hat

    I like this hat, and I think it will look good on stage.

    The fit is right on.

    However, one would think that at almost $200, a hat that has leather all over it would have a leather stampede string instead of a cloth shoestring.

    Well, at least it was easily removed.

    :rofl:

    My Compliments to the milliner!

    Speaking of compliments, I got one from the very first person I saw, the very first time I wore it! According to him, this hat “rocks”!

    Superb Desolation

    I work outside in the ATL. When the mercury hit 100 it was time to pimp my lid. This hat does the trick. A bonus: if I can’t get a date wearing this hat, I can’t get a date period.

    Stunning hat, light weight, fits perfectly, great sun protection, but one small flaw

    To be honest, I love this hat. I get compliments on it when I wear it. I appreciate that it comes with a chin strap because otherwise it would fly away. The only issue is with the nail. It's a great touch, but the leather 'string' that holds it in is too loose and can't be tightened, so the nail has fallen out on several occasions, which makes me really sad because I don't want to lose it.
