I initially ordered this hat in tan and ended up returning it. The color turned out to be brown not tan (this mistake cost me substantial return shipping). The quality and style are perfect and the brim is nice for someone who is on the shorter side. The Provence 10 and 12 tended to overpower.
I ended up getting the natural color and will keep the hat. Surprisingly, the second hat fit more snugly than the first even though both are one size fits most. (Posted on 10/9/16)
The Provence 8 is perfect for me. It's brim shades my face without overwhelming me as the 12" brim did. I love the fact that the open weave of the hat allows air to cool your head while wearing it. It is a wonderful hat. (Posted on 8/11/10)
