I was impressed with how authentic the top hat looks and feels up close. An added surprise that was not in the picture was a feather and hat pin tucked into the hat band. No doubt, you'll love this hat.

Awesome quality product!! I ordered a black John Bull top hat, and it is beautiful! The sizing was spot on, it arrived much more quickly than I imagined, and in perfect condition. I'm not sure what I expected, but I was more than impressed with both the materials and workmanship, and will gladly recommend Historical Emporium to my friends and colleagues!

Great Price
Great Price and fits great. I have not worn this hat to an event yet however I can already tell you that I love this hat over the Coachman's that I have previously purchased couple of months ago. Coachman's hat feels cheaply made compared to the John Bull which is Ironic when you compare the prices.

Great Hat
The hat came quickly, the size was appropriate. The shape around the hat band is a tad strange, but I believe with some wear and sweat it will mold to the head. I am a magician and I will be using this hat extremely often and am pleased with the purchase.

Looks great, weird fit
The hat is very elegant. Got lots of complements. Looks good with steampunk goggles on them. However, the hat is not oval (head-shaped) enough. On my head, it binds at the front and back -- which is sort-of good since it has gaps on the left and right, and only only the front/back pressure is holding it on. Even so, it rocks back-and-forth, left-right as my head tilts.

My Favorite Hat
This hat (like most products I find on here) is durable, yet elegant. It's reinforced quite well to retain its shape including the slight "bell" shape the brim has. It's not a bad price as well. I'd recommend it.

interesting size
Hat size was a little bit bigger than expected. It was much fatter (side to side) than a normal hat, and much shorter (front to back). It fits on my head, but tents to tilt side to side. I expect I could reshape it, but haven't tried to do so yet, so don't know how that would work.

I ordered your straw top hat because I wanted a low - ebb, relaxed summer formal look. It appeared to be what I would like. The order came quickly. The hat really seems to be well made. However, I was surprised to see how TALL it is! The site did say how tall it would be, but I did not estimate the effect. Well, if I don't think I can live with it, I'll just have get another one!

My topper arrived three days after I placed my order. It was very nicely packaged to prevent any damage in transit. I keep my chapeau in the box when I am not wearing it.

This has to be the most comfortable hat I've ever had! Light wool felt that seems to breath a bit better than others I've had. Not too tight or loose or any feeling of heaviness or other. It looks good with my face shape and all too. Really seems to suite me well for the price. Workmanship is good too. I changed the band to one of western diamondback rattler like JB Books and it looks even better yet! I'll be back...

Versatile and Stylish
First, a note of caution on sizing: I wear a size 7 3/8, and the large was too big. But the medium fits perfectly. Customer service promptly sent me a replacement size. The hat is stylish, certainly for casual wear, but can also accessorize a nice top coat or jacket. The wide brim, not only serves to protect against the sun, but keeps the rain off, lessening the need for an umbrella. This will be especially useful for hiking. I haven't tried to fold it for packing, but that would really make it versatile.

I was very disappointed in the Slouch hat. It is too soft, and not of a high quality material. I fear it might wash away in the rain. It does not hold it's shape and is simply too soft. I am buying a bottle of hat stiffener to see if I can fix this hat and make it into something use able, but I cannot recommend this hat to anyone. It looks nice in the photo, but disappointing upon arrival.

Too bad about the fit
The hat is excellent but the size I received was between Medium and Large (inner circumference 22.75 inches), however placing a shim of paper inside the hatband solved that problem. Other than that the hat is excellent. I expect this is a hat that wasn't caught during the final inspection.

nice but tight
Large should include that extra quarter inch that was not there! If I had ordered extra large size the hat would have fitted me like a bucket! The size LARGE should include an extra quarter inch for people who are genuine half sizes-- between Large and XL. This is the case with shoes as well. I am a genuine 11 and a half and so it is with hats! Be more inclusive! Damn you! Otherwise I like my hat, even if it gives me a headache!! Now I can be Zorro and play classical guitar like the wind! Thank you! Grrrrr!!!

First planter/Tomstone style felt
So I've worn Stetson straw and felt cowboy hats almost daily for 15-20 years. This is the first of purchase, of a lid that is not sized by inches and, I did not try on prior. For the price and the fact that I'll shape it to my style/personality, I'm quite pleased. This lid will ware sooner than heavier felts yet, the ware will be a great contributor to the look I seek. I still ware my straw most of the time but, now when stepping out I'll be someone with assured presence. Cause let's face it, somebody's got to have some style. Add my duster and it's hillbilly deluxe. Billing, shipping and overall service was very pleasing.

Hat strings
I didn't want the hat strings on the hat. Decided to go ahead and order the hat since that was the only way it came. I will take the strings off of the hat to wear the hat. The hat strings are not an optional item. It would possibly help others decide to purchase the hat without strings if you made the hat strings optional with a wait time for delivery (custom order).

Planter Flat Crown Hat
In anticipation of playing the role of Fagin in a local community theater production of "Oliver!" I searched and searched for a wide, flat brim hat with a fairly low crown that would complement my costume, but not "break the bank." I finally ordered this one, and although the crown was not quite as low as I had wanted, it still turned out to be an excellent choice. The fit and look both are perfect. And it is very sturdy ... I accidentally sat on it (a black hat on a black chair) and thought that would ruin it -- but the crown went right back into shape when I popped out the crumples! A great hat that I most certainly will wear and enjoy for many more years, along with the other quality period pieces I have previously purchased from Historical Emporium.

Planters Hat
I really like the hat. I would have liked a lining, but for the money it is a great value. I purchased this hat for my wife to ride in. She doesn't particularly like cowboy hats, and living in South Dakota where winds of 20 mph are considered "breezy", she needed something with a string to latch on. I will probably replace the stampede string with another that is of higher quality, the slide does not hold at all. Shipping was quick, even in December. Very happy with the purchase.

Great
Works really as expected. Every head will be different, so be aware of yours and measure it so be careful. The hat cord was poorly made, and needs improvement. I removed it entirely and put on my own, an adjustable one so that I could make it tight. This hat will fly off with a sudden gust of wind. Nonetheless, I'm very happy with it.

I think it would have been nice if it would have been lined. But I still like the hat.

Nice hat
It was pretty much as represented. I like the look, and it's American made. The fitting chart seemed to work well also.

More than happy!
I have a felt "bowler" that I purchased years ago elsewhere. My wife likes a taller crown, and I was in the market for a straw derby, since my receeding hairline is rapidly approaching the bald spot in the back. After looking at many sites that carry hats, I finally googled "straw bowler/derby" and your site came right up. The hat I bought came up as soon as your site opened. I was surprised that you carry it in my size which is "medicine ball" and it fits perfectly. In fact, I am not only more than happy, I am just tickled with my little self for making this purchase.

there are many different types of straw used in hats. I believe that the strongest, and also very attractive is the straw used in Guatamala! I have had one for over 25 years and the straw derby is even better made. Some day I may buy the straw top hat, also the tough Guatamalin palm straw!

This derby is a great fit and very cool in the hot Florida summer. I wear it for a 19th Century visitor program at the Castillo de San Marcos and it is much more comfortable in 90 degree whether than my other Emporium derby that I use in cooler weather.

Straw derby
The black band slid up towards crown of hat. Have to use adhesive to hold in place or remove completely. Otherwise, happy with purchase.

great hat
Great hat, seems to be well constructed. It is sized a little small in reference to the sizing chart.

Nice Straw Hat for the money
Well made quality straw Derby. However, find out what your European hat size is and send that in. The sizes run a bit large with this product.

Simply brilliant!
A rarity among men's straw/palm hats, the Straw Derby as offered by the Historical emporium is simply brilliant. Light, comfortable, holds its shape well, and receives abundant compliments. Thoroughly pleased!
