Gottmann makes wonderful headwear. I have a bucket-style Gottmann hat and love it! I was happy to find this hat on STP's site and purchased a black beret, size: L.
Great quality. The hat is extremely well made. The wool is soft not scratchy and the hat is fully lined. It covered my ears enough to keep them warm and cozy on cold days.
It's also nice to find a hat available in different sizes. The fit is so much better than ones that are "one size fits all." I often find hats that come in one size to be on the tight side.
One of the reviewers wrote that while berets don't usually look good on her, this particular style worked. I was hopeful this would apply to me as well.
I like wearing hats but traditional berets just look weird on me for whatever reason. Unfortunately, even with the structured brim, the hat looked goofy on me. I also found the large to be almost too big but I think the medium would probably be too small.
So I returned the hat with a certain amount of regret because it's a very nice hat at such a reasonable price!

I love hats. This is a great basic beret, with a twist. Nice features - a nice band inside, slightly different style to the hat, good weight, etc. The small fits like smalls usually fit on me. A great deal with STP. Would buy another in a different color. (The slight twist to me is that it's a bit fuller, but still can be cocked to the side with one side down and the other side a bit 'puffed up.')

Hats that fit, look cute and are also good quality are hard to find. I've tried on berets and they often make me look like a flying saucer has landed on my head. Not this one! The inner band prevents the itchiness from wool, a very important detail. Thanks to STP, I think I've finally found the perfect winter hat. Note: usual winter weather here is not freezing cold.

This hat is so well made and such a fabulous design that TWO of my friends ordered one after seeing mine! I had to send my first one back. My head measures 22" and I needed a large. The Medium was snug. A great deal though! Grab one while they are still there!

The band that is sewn around the opening of this beret makes all the difference in the world on how it fits and looks while worn. It's a more formal look than a flat woven beret and therefore seems to be much better. Although more expensive than the other hats I bought, these now complete my wardrobe needs.
