For all to share happiness
For me, being like most, My head is bigger than my body 7-3/4 New Era hat, or mostly XL, sometimes a Large. This hat fits perfectly. Even with all my thick hair, I can pull it down to my ears. So I looked in the mirror and I looked like that Cartoon Monkey D Luffy, without intent, for all I was looking for was the Lifeguard style hat to block the sun like real sailors wear on their boats. Also the hat came in almost a hat box perfect box. And the hat is of very high quality even for Billabong. I seen the other hats at Billabong and New Era, I don't play baseball, so I'd rather not wear a hat at all in public. But on the boat or beach. I hope you don't buy one, cause I did. Another question I was wondering, the liner. It's a 1" very thin nylon band like any hat would have. Not no where as thick as a baseball hats that puts a mar I see on some folks foreheads. Also, don't buy one if you didn't already know a straw hat is cooler than any other kind material for a hat in the sun. Fact, if I watch a baseball game, i feel sorry for those fashion caps, cause they cook my brains out. Cowboys know that to, so it was either this or a cowboy straw hat. heehaw:) Just 2 more things, The brim is 4 in. front and back and 4.5 in. on this sides where the band goes through solid brass grommets. All I can tell is ORANGE means the Billabong 2.25" patch has a orange embroidering boarder around it circumference.
