Have the same hat from 20+ years ago, in picture, it’s still in good shape. These are the best hats for sun, travel, and very long lasting!!!
I have been looking for a charcoal-colored hat by San Diego Hats for years. My platonic ideal of a San Diego Hat was purchased in New York City at a Whole Foods many years ago. It was a dark charcoal grey--say, a 65% to 75% grey.
I was pleased to find the hat I've purchased. Upon receipt, though, I was dismayed to find the crown shape to be bulbous at the top instead of the traditional gentle rounding. Make no mistake--it works just fine and I like the color. It rolls up well when I'm out.
I just wish the crown weren't so weird. I'm considering returning it, but I can't the sure I won't receive a hat with the same type of crown.
I like the hat, but I returned it because I needed a chin strap.
I ordered 3 hats and love them all!!
This summer I bought several hats from San Diego Hat Co and all of them were good quality and good looking.
