The Wool 504 is the iconic, original Kangol Cap. First introduced in 1954, the 504 cap get its name from the number assigned to the block shape that it is made on. The seamless, knitted and blocked construction is purely a Kangol innovation, and Tropic is the fundamental summer weight material upon which Kangol has built its name.

Compared to the classic Ventair 504, this Wool 504 is sized wrong. I own several different styles of Kangol's, and this is the only Large where it feels like an Extra Large. When I lay my Ventair 504 next to/on top of the Wool Cap, the Wool one is definitely wider and longer in length.
As I said before, the brim is huge on this hat/ it's very wide. The brim is also a little tougher to shape than on other Kangol's. I laughed when I read another reviewer say this looked like it was cut from a big fleece blanket, because I can kind of see that. It does fold very flat if you're taking it on a trip.
The Kangol wool 504 hat does a nice of job keeping my head warm. I don't find the wool itchy at all.
If you got it sized correctly, it might be a really good hat. It's smooth-looking and it's a Kangol. I'm just dumbfounded at how big this one fits.
My barber tells me that in aging men hair is overrated. He tells me this after cutting what is left of my hair and charging me a hat's worth for doing so. :>[[ I think I've decided that hats are cheaper, less painful, and more fun than transplants.Women seem to like them too.
There's a lot of discussion about hat sizes. My size is a 7 5/8th which translated into a large. I bought a different style of this hat first to check sizing, and then this hat. The two hats seem consistently sized. Amazon's sizing chart worked for me.
I've also read that these hat were better made 10 or 15 years ago before production was offshored from England. I can't speak to that. These hats are reasonably made, but not exquisitely made. They should last.
I see hats of these types in high end hat stores locally (not Kangols) and those hats are only a little more expensive than the ones I'm finding here on Amazon. So I have to say that Kangols on Amazon are not an amazing value (as many things are), but the convenience of shopping and getting exactly what you want makes this a good place to buy these kinds of hats. This was a good purchase.
But I was looking for a replacement for a Kangol hat that looked just like the picture, but was without seams and held a shape. This one is soft and floppy. Is there another model that is shaped? Fifty years ago, what I was seeking was called a Shetland cap, while this one was called a flat cap or a soft cap. Now I will try to never leave my hat or cap in a resturant. The soft hat does have the advantage that it can go in a pocket rather than on a rack or shelf.

This hat is pretty self explanatory, I always, always, always get compliments when I wear this (did I say always). Read morePublished 7 hours ago by A. Scott
Lovely shape and fit with quality wool flannel. Color is quite a bit darker than it appears in image though so it didn't match with my other accessories.Published 21 days ago by BrandNewReviews
The design is rather wide, it can not look good on thin faces. The material is very good quality, although I wish it were less deformable. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Daniel Ferrari
