I bought a 'costume version' of a top hat, and it lacked the sophistication required for even wearing such a hat. I did not think I'd wear it much, being so 'dressy'..it turns out I wear it a LOT. It is Christmas season now, and people light up, and strike up conversations...they all admire it...it is presenting "style" and elegance in an age where it seems the whol world has "dumbed down" and dress like churls, commoners, sloppy, dirty, drab. But this hat is very well made, with feather and white satin lining like they are supposed to have. With a nice black wool top coat, and perhaps a scarf, you will have the opera composer look , vis Giuseppi Verdi...this exudes elegance and style..people look at you admiringly..they feel you must be filthy rich! But more..you can see it in their eyes and in their tone, how most people would LOVE to see our society return to dressing nicely in public..instead everyone looks like they're ready to weld a ship, or haul the garbage, or change oil, or dig your ditch., or muck out your barn. They look aroudn to see where you parked the carriage with horses. ( I go on with a smile here-but trust me..you will love this hat ) Now they didn't have a "medium" so I took the large. I was successful in gluing in a self sticking 1/2inch thick foam tape that one uses to insulate around doors and window screens ) between the interior head band and the hat proper...and also glued the top edge of the interior head band down with very sticky clear glue available at , say, A.C. Moore Hobby store. Now the foam band surround behind the simulated leather head band feles actually more comfortable with that bit of foam cushion. it's now perfect! Beautiful hat! Perfect for Christmas time especially! Everyone loves it and comments on how they admire it.
