Reviewed by Gloria goes shopping from San Bernardino, CA on Tuesday, July 19, 2011
Ordered for my husband...when we took it out of the box, it looked great! Very light, looks extremely well made. The 'straw' was very fine and closely braided, nicely finished. But a tag inside of the hat said 100% paper! (while the description of the product said straw!)...I did a little investigating and apparently a lot of straw hats are now actually made out of coated paper, which seems a shame. In fact, some of the newly listed hats by this same company now say 'paper straw'. Maybe the product description for this item just hadn't been updated in some time, but I felt somewhat misled. I'm not sure I would have purchased this hat if I had known; that being said, we decided to keep it and see how well it works out...can't really recommend this hat until then.
