A comfortable and reasonably warm hat that doesn't have to come off when you go indoors, because it is reasonably stylish.
I purchased the ivory, and it is, indeed, a true ivory rather than a yellowish-cream shade.
Some Betmar hats lack structure in the brim, and tend to unwanted floppiness. This one is marginal . . . In its new state, I'm able to shape the brim as I like, and it stays put, but I'm not sure that'll stay that way over time. Sometimes I will sew a light wire into the brim of Betmar hats to compensate for this problem. At this price, I don't mind the trouble.
The ivory is a bit difficult to wear because it is so stark against the face, but I'm sure I'll work it into my wardrobe eventually.
