I love the hat. It is a little snugger than my other one with the flower, but I am sure it will stretchout. I love the fact that is real Harris tweed from the Outer Hebrides Islands. I am sure it will become my favorite of the three I have. I wear the wool ones all winter and my waxed one the other wet months of the year in the U. P. of Michigan. My friend in England wears hers all winter too. She has the black flower one.
