When buying authentics, I have learned that you have to get used to the properties of the materials used. Wool will tend to insulate heat more than cotton or a trucker hat. On the flipside, these hats are built to last a lifetime because of the materials used..
My experience with this hat has been absolutely wonderful! Great fit, great color, and great construction! This hat is all around lit!
More Holy Cross gear in purple and navy!
This hat has quickly become my favorite! High quality construction and love the classic wool material. Size was a bit snug but is stretching just enough for a perfect fit. Love the history associated with such a classic school that has been around over 150 years.
Yo Team, dig the hat. Initially thought I may have gotten it to small. Typically wear a 7 3/8ths and the Holy Cross hat was a tad tight for the first few days, but now it is nice n perfect. Wore it in some rain, drizzle the other day and stayed fit. Dig the material and love that is historic in some way. I bought this mainly as I wanted to test the brand out as Im a potential custom order guy for a jr cycling organization I help run. Hope to talk soon and again, dig the hat.
