This hat wasn't put together very well.
Some of the brim straw was not glued down.
Recently it had gotten wet from a rain and now the grommets which hold the leather tie around has come out of the hat, making a hole were the grommet was. It is also showing some of the straw coming lose on the under side of the brim.
It was a nice looking hat for awhile. (Posted on 8/25/14)
After a full roofing season - it is love! This hat has saved my head from sun, debris coming off of roofs, and made a lasting impression. The head band kept this hat in place in even strong winds! (Posted on 1/15/14)
I like the way this hat looks and have another one which has lasted 6 years. First used it when a tour guide going to the Grand Canyon. Though my old one is funky looking now it has character. And now I get to break in a new one. They had stopped selling (Posted on 8/21/12)
