Very pleased to have grabbed the last 7 7/8 hat from my alma mater (had to order two sizes to make sure I got the right one). The hat is very different from the modern New Era style, with no cardboard or plastic in the bill and wool panels rather than synthetic, but that's obviously the point. The quality and workmanship are instantly apparent, and customer service was very prompt in answering my questions and handling the return of one of the hats.
Only good things to say about anything I've gotten from EFF, but this hat is no exception -- it is comfortable, fits true to size, and doesn't have a breaking in period like so many other fitted hats; I was originally a little thrown off by the fact that the brim has no plastic component, but it actually helps the hat contour naturally to fit my head. All good stuff from the EFF crew!
Everything is great. However I do wish I just got a fitted. The adjustable hat is still quite tight on the largest setting. Which may be more of a problem of me having a giant 7 5/8 head than the hat being too small.
