I got a sweet deal on this bad boy during one of their sales. I got a 7 1/8th and it fit me better than any hat I've ever owned--fitted or adjustable, plus the fabric was so soft it was a joy to put on, felt like I was wearing a giant marshmallow. Unfortunately, it seems I was not cut out to live such dreams for very long, because less than a month after getting this beaut' she was ripped from my life never to be seen again. I know you must be wondering how I could be so foolish to lose something I held so dear. Well, long story short I woke up in the hospital one morning after an unfortunate accident and my sweet blue D was nowhere to be found. To summarize, this is an awesome hat and if it were still on sale I'm sure I would be buying another one right now instead of writing this review. Unfortunately I can't justify spending full price this soon. Lord-willing, the fine people at Ebbets keep crafting this fine chapeau so that I have a chance to someday fill the whole it has left in my heart.
Shipping was fast (reside in AZ/NV) and the product quality is GREAT. Seriously buying everyday hat from this site. BEST place to find vintage style hats!
Beautiful high-quality cap!
