I received my hats today and they are very nice. I previously had the same hat and really liked it, so I bought 3 in different colors.
Great description of a great hat. If this hat fits your style, then you will be happy with your purchase.
excellent shape and material
First off, it appears perfectly well constructed and fits me fine.
My gripes are that it is not an exact match to the photos. The photos show copper hardware and a brown branding tag located on the side of the cap - I like that fine. The cap I received has black hardware and black branding located on the front of the cap - I don’t like that and wouldn’t have ordered it. It is also described as Dark Grey, although it does appear fairly light in the photos. In person it is no darker, but it does have a considerable lavender hue to it that is somewhat evident in the photo but is much more distinct in person. I dunno how this is called “dark grey”. I have a dark grey coat and these really look nothing alike. I’ll recolor the hat in the wash with some dark grey dye and maybe that will get it in the ballpark of what I was expecting to receive.
Also, it’s a bit deeper than I would prefer, but I knew that was a possibility when I ordered it. I thought I would get the olive color too if it was shallow enough, but now I won’t, especially after realizing the inconsistencies of my first order.
