NOT BAD FOR A 7X FROM BRAZIL - NOT A 30X RESISTOL BUT AM HAPPY WITH THE PRODUCT - FEW HOURS ON THE HAT STRETCHER AND IT FIT JUST RIGHT. BAND COULD USE SOME WORK ALONG WITH THE BUCKLE. FEATHERS SHOULD STAY AT THE CARNIVAL. WELL DONE INSIDE AND THE CUT WAS JUST RIGHT. CAME OUT OF THE BOX PRETTY DUSTY LIKE IT HAD BEEN AROUND THE WAREHOUSE FOR SOME TIME - OVERALL PLEASED AS PUNCH.
Best Uses: Daytime, Formal Events, JUST BEING A COWBOY, Night Clubbing, Office, Travel
Cons: CAME A LITTLE DUSTY, Poor Fit
Describe Yourself: Comfort-oriented, High-end shopper, NO WHAT I WANT - GET IT, Practical, Stylish

This texture of this hat feels as soft as my 7x Stetsons & Resistols & is probably all rabbit fur. It's very stiff(steam it). This is Estouro's highest crown for a light color. High crowns are easier to fit. I think all of the Estouros are thick so they may be better in cooler weather. The size was slightly small, which was good for me; However other Estouros that I got after this one were slightly large. The brim is not by nature flat, more umbrella shaped: but if you like it upturned the way that it is, it should hold its shape better than most because it is thick. The sweat band is thick, soft real leather.
