I first came across Ebinets field flannels two years ago when I visited Seattle. This was the first hat to get my attention right as I walked in the store. The material is unlike an major manufacturers, the feel of the hat is tough yet soft. The metallic Green under the brim, brings the hat to life. Don’t forget these hats are American made, they remind you of an early time. This hat is a great American fit. It also runs true to size
