I LOVE this hat. Unfortunately, the only size left was a small. I have been able to wear small, especially in leathers that can have a bit of stretch. This wasn't even close. It's a small small. It also arrived with a flaw on the brim in the stitching. I would buy it in a heartbeat if I could find it in a M.

the hat came with a bent wire, and not bent to form either, its like someone bent it at a hard angle and then sent it out. i could have lived with that but the hat fits weirdly when its on your head. maybe i have a tall head, but it just didnt pull down far eough to feel like that hat wasnt going to fall off with the smallest breeze. the leather was a nice quality though, if it had fit better and the wire wasnt bent i might have kept it.

Purchased this for backpacking/hiking. Nothing fancy here- just a good casual hat. If the leather is on the stiff side, the application of a little oil will restore suppleness and give the hat a nice, lived-in look, lest you be taken for a greenhorn. Wire in the brim allows it to be shaped; a good feature, but be careful as it will kink readily. Like a previous reviewer, I initially ordered a size XL and it was too small to fit, exchanged it for a XXL and found it almost too large, so sizing appears to be something of an issue in this range.

This hat arrived with a paint blob on its top, a handful of black marks scattered all around, and several scratches or abrasions as well. It's not just a closeout, it's a very bad second or preowned hat. So beware of what's left in the stockpile with respect to these hats. Otherwise, it looks nice, but it ran way big. I usually take a L or a 7 3/8 in hats, and I am wallowing in this one. It's either a missized oddity, OR these hats run huge. Needless to say, I will ship it back and complain about its multitude of defects.
Best Uses: Casual Wear
Cons: Came wBlack Paint on It, Came with Abrasions, Poor Fit
