I got this for my husband and told him this it the "grown-up version of the ball-cap". He hated it, until he wore it and everyone (esp. the women!) started telling him how dapper and cool he looked. Love this hat and it looks so good. Well made and not hot to wear.

Kangol is well known for their flat caps, whether it be the 504 or 507 models. The so-called "Flexfit Fashionable Sleek Cap" is neither of those, instead being a style often known as a "newsboy" cap. (The most obvious difference between a flat cap and a newsboy cap is the latter has both a squatchee on top and is usually of eight-panel construction.)

Beyond the aesthetic differences, I found there is not a great deal of difference between, say, the Kangol 504 and this cap. The sizing is near identical, so if a Kangol flat cap fits you, so should this one. They even look quite similar when seated atop your head, the main difference being this cap has both a lower crown and wider sides, so it might look a bit "bloated" compared to the rather sleek look of the Kangol flat caps.

The material used to make this cap is mainly acrylic with some wool, so it's going to have a look and feel much like the older New Era baseball caps (models prior to 2007 were almost entirely wool.) This means it's NOT a particularly lightweight or cool cap, and thus may not be the best to wear in very hot weather. (I'd recommend the Tropic models from Kangol if you want something lightweight and breathable.) However, the elastic sweatband does a great job at both fitting your head and wicking away moisture, so you don't have to worry about sweat getting into your eyes.

Overall, it's a really nice cap, one I enjoy wearing often, and I particular like the green "Loden" color. If you're into this style of cap, you might want to pick it up in a few different colors and sizes, as all of them are going to fit slightly differently on your head.

Simple hat but very comfortable. I like that the brim of the hat is a little more receptive to curving (similar to a baseball hat). I can wear it all day without feeling like it's squeezing my head and it is surprisingly resilient to water from light rain.

I bought this hat for my husband for Christmas because I needed a change from baseball caps. I debated which Kangol style to get him but this one is a PERFECT transition hat because it has a sporty look to it. This hat is so handsome and he wears it all the time because it's so comfortable. He says it's like pajamas for your head!

My hubby is losing his hair due to chemo treatment and loves how this hat fits his head, and is not too hot to wear

If you have green or light-brown eyes, buy this! This will grab girls' attention (not like "peacocking" attention, but they will notice you. No joke, 3 girls who've I had my eye on for a while came up and talked to me the day I put this on. This is now my lucky cap). Like a previous reviewer said, this is like a baseball cap, but for adults, and it's true. It is something different, and I like it. And believe me, this is coming from a guy who doesn't go clothes shopping a whole lot.

This is a beautiful hat. Great quality, material, and workmanship. The fabric feels nice and is nice and warm, also. Good buy.

This is my second Kangol cap. Of special concern to me was the size. I am happy to report that it's sizing is generous for my 7 3/4 head size. I really like the wide selection of caps and will certainly add more Kangol's to my collection.

Not a ture XL as other Kangol caps I have purchsed. The flexfit sweat ban is not on par with the quality one comes to expect from Kangol

The hat looks very nice (just not on me) and seems to be of high quality. Immediately upon taking it out of the box, my wife said that it looks too big. While it fit well on my head because of the elastic band, it did look larger than I would have hoped for. Several days later I wore the hat when my grandchildren came to visit and the youngest one was very excited because I was wearing my "clown hat". Then the older ones started to taunt me on my clown hat. I realized that I had deluded myself on thinking that the hat looked only slightly large. Regrettably, I'm returning the hat because instead of making me look sexy and suave, it makes me look like Bozo. If you have a smallish head, this hat may not be for you, otherwise it's very nice.
