This hat is great! I had *ilson and sent it back immediately after trying this hat. In fact, I ordered a 2nd one in a different color! The brown mix fit was slightly looser than the solid black in the same size. I decided to just keep it since this is outdoor work hat. Material is excellent and holds it shape very well. I really like that is shaped like an actual fedora and have received many compliments. It was made in China but it is definitely a high quality item that easily meets Tilley's high standards that we have come to expect. This is my 4th hat from Tilley and will continue to buy more.
