Of course it is the real thing! Reflected in the cost - this is not a cheap hat. Specially sourced materials are used to produce a hat that sags into the typical shape as soon as its on your head! Look at the detail, the headband is soft leather, the top is American cloth and the fabric is the correct close weave Gabardine also the piping is to the original dimensions. British made. All sizes from 54 - 64 cm available. See conversion chart for sizes in inches. Hats are supplied without a badge. Totem badges in all regional colours are available separately. All sizes except 54cm are supplied with old fashioned buckram stiffener to keep them in shape. Buckram is a linen/cotton fabric, which allows moisture to pass through it. 54 cm hats have the modern thin plastic stiffener.
Measure the circumference of your head in centimetres, just above the ears, where you want the hat to fit snugly. If you are halfway between sizes, go for the larger size, and fit some padding behind the inner leather band. Please do not assume that the size stated inside another hat you already have is actually correct.
