It feels like a step above for an adjustable hat. Personally, I feel that the fitted version would have felt like better quality/more personal. But, my hair changes and I like the option to adjust. That said, the logo of the hat is pilling a bit, Overall pleased, and intend on purchasing another
Solid hat. Would buy again

Best hat I own
Ebbets makes great hats. You will not regret your purchase. I am more a fan of Ebbets than of baseball. Although I like baseball, I don't follow it, don't live on the East Coast (I live about as far west as you can get), and a high quality hat made in the usa is much rarer than the actual game. I wear this cap because I love that it is American made, I love the history of this particular team, and I love the font and color scheme. I also follow a lot of NY culture. I was wearing this cap somewhere when a man and his wife stopped me. He says to me, "Go Red Sox!" We reply to him, "Yay, go Red Sox!" Because why not? I liked his enthusiasm. Then he gives me a weird look and goes silent. He looks confused and a little mad. And he walks away without saying anything else. Days or weeks later I realize he mistook this hat for a Yankees hat, to which all I can say is that the font is completely different, so I think that's on you, mad dude. I have the J.Crew collab twill version, but I wish I had the wool one, too. Will there ever be more adjustable ones? Will you ever make more Hawaii hats? I have non buyers remorse on that one. At the time I was like, okay, I really only need to own ONE hat in life for my ONE head. But I really love Ebbets and it is hard to pick just one. The quality of my hat is outstanding, and I feel like the wool would be more authentic and thus even better (if you are on the fence). Note to the design team: I do think the leather adjustable strap is wearing faster than the rest of the hat. If you are not a sports fan, they now make blanks, and I have so many ideas about that. Maybe a Judah Friedlander hat that just says "No." Maybe some artwork by Tamra Shopsin.
I purchased the fitted Versuion. Fits 100% true to size. The Fit, Materials are insanely good! Never had a cap with a better quality wool. Best cap i ever owned! Shipping and whole shoppibg experience was really, really good! Not the norm since shipping overseas (i live in germany) is often not satisfying
