Comments: This is a gorgeous hat with a great feel to it. I love the fact that Hartford York also supplied sizing tape, as I not only have a small head, but it's shaped somewhat oblong; the hat fit perfectly front and back, but without the sizing tape, would've had a tendency to "wobble" side to side. The tape on either side made it fit snugly all the way around. Even without the sizing tape, however, the hat itself is beautiful. This is my first Homburg (although I have a number of fedoras, ivy caps, and newsboys) and I wasn't sure how it would look, but I was very pleased with it, as was my wife. The crown is a bit taller than what I'm used to, but I'm still happy with it.

The felt did have a couple of "blemishes", although they appear to be more of a marking in the material (think of a cowhide leather with a scar in it), rather than a defect. (Had it actually looked defective, I would have quickly returned it.) All around - including the appearance of the hat, the sizing, shipping speed, quality, and value - this is definitely a 4.5 out of 5 stars. This was my first purchase from HY and I hope to be shopping with them more in the future.

Comments: I bought this hat to use for a 1920's speakeasy party. I purchased the black color hat, took out the feather and the hat rocked it! It was the finishing touch that I was looking for. We went in public all dressed out and people loved us and I got a few comments on this hat, and how I took it off indoors. I'm going to use this hat again and again, in fact you could use it for an 1870's through 1920's as this was seen on people in the HBO mini-series Deadwood too.

Be sure to measure your head as it's true to size, I am 7 1/8 with trim hair and I got the Med. perfect fit. Don't hesitate...this is a great hat.
