I purchased this cap as part of my costume for a production Fiddler on the Roof, and I could not be more pleased! the cap is made of high quality material and look perfect. An elegant look, and very practical in rain and cold weather. An amazing hat for a very reasonable price! (Posted on 11/4/15)
Hat is attractive, feels well made, red-satin liner is very nice. Unfortunately it IS made of wool, so cleaning it can be a bit difficult.
Biggest issue is that due to the soft material it fails to hold its shape on its upper rim, so that often bends or dents slightly. Easy to fix, but it will only last until the next gust of wind dents it again. (Posted on 8/6/15)
Had many of this genre---Fiddler and Fisherman styles---and greatly prefer Fiddler . . . unless the scope of one's "out-of-doors experiences" is bounded by the confines of the coffee shop, there WILL be wind-blown dirt. The foo-faws on a Fisherman catch dirt like an oily rag. Brushing a Fiddler restores it to glory, and all years of use & age bestow upon a Fiddler is CHARACTER! (Posted on 5/28/15)
I live in a coastal, maritime town, often damp and rainy.This cap is well made of strong wool outside, fine satin inside,no frivolous fancy embroidery, just simple but good looking quality, inside and out. (Posted on 7/24/12)
