Great looking Hat
This is one of those items that brings out the compulsive in me and makes me want to order two! Great fit (I wear a lrg), great looking and comfortable. I usually doubt straw hats at this price but this hat is well constructed and I am choosing it often to wear outside during the summer days. I will order another one as I fear I might wear this one out. Just love this hat.

I really like this hat!
The straw is tightly and finely hand woven Panama Hat from Ecuador. The price is very reasonable. I have a Panama Fedora for which I paid over $200 six years ago and this is comparable in quality. I'll be using it for my musical stage performances in Columbia, CA this next month and for years to come. For the hot weather you can't beat a Panama. With moderate care, they last forever. I wanted a topper that was a little lower in height and this fits the bill perfectly. I really like this hat!

Black Panama Topper
I have a number of round hats (toppers) and prefer fur felt. As such, I'm not too keen on straw hats, but wanted something for the warmer weather. I couldn't be more pleased with this hat. It is, quite simply, the completest thing -- well done!

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.

Good straw, well woven, shape is not a top hat however. The hat leansvincand the top is not flat. Having to have it blocked. The stretch elastic fashion band was ridiculous. Changing it to a Petersham.

The Straw Top Hat is a well made and handsome product. It receives many compliments and has received an offer of trade by a stranger. The shipping time was quick and the shipping charges were inexpensive, as it cost me 3X's more in charges to ship for an exchange for a smaller size. Thank you for such a fun product!

Straw top hat
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. I was very happy with my purchase; and I will definitely order from the Historical Emporium again. I wish I could provide you with a photo.

Nice with a caveat
The hat is just as described. Maybe runs a wee bit small (however it could be my measuring - first time that buyer.) Ultimately it's a great hat. My caveat is twofold. First it doesn't list on the tag in the hat what it's made of, and two, it's made in China. I might have overlooked these two details when I purchased, but those are my thoughts. It really is a nice hat though.

So damn good.
Okay, lets get past the basics. The hat looks fantastic. Just DAMN fine. Now, despite my big head (really big. I usually have to stretch out XLs) it was a shade too big BUT the brilliant internal elastic took care of that very nicely. As a tip, if you pull the elastic out below the brim at the back, you get a very comfortable yet secure fit. Feels great and looks better. Superb value.
