I would a agree that this doesn't look too much like a Blues Brothers hat in person, but you get what you pay for. The material is not "soft" as per description, and the pinch of the rim is not very prominent (although that may be fixable). Also, the size ran a bit small for my head.
The hat is nothing like a Blues Brothers hat, and should not be advertised as such! The hat is fine for a "pimp" hat, or the hats that many orthodox jewish men wear while walking to temple. The ribbon on the hat also came off, and there was a white ring around the hat wear it should have been.
I read the reviews on this product and I wished I would have listened. I knew that they were going to be cheap and I didn't care at the time because I was buying it for my to boys for a gatspy party. Let me tell you that it looks nothing like the picture and poorly shaped. It doesn't even look like a gangster hat. It looks very womanish and curves inward towards the bottom. UGGGLY! I knew it would be bad, but I had no idea that it would be that bad. Completely pointless.
