It's a beautiful hat, but, as you can plainly see, it's advertised as being black, and the one I received is brown.
We were highly disappointed in these hats. Yes, they are leather, but they look cheap. The brown is very light, while the picture looks almost black. I would send them back, but the cost of shipping does not make it worth it. They are headed to the trash.
Tight at first, but after a day of wearing it loosened up fairly well. Overall, a great hat for the price.
Excellent quality, seems very well-made. It is definitely browner than it looks in the pictures, which is what I was hoping for. I like that the sides and back are tied up with leather strips (you can see the knots on the inside of the hat); it feels much more realistic for a pirate hat than if they'd used metal or glue. One thing you can't tell in the pictures that some people may care about is that the top of the brim--the part that is largely hidden by the fact that the sides and back are tied up--is the unfinished underside of the leather, which is why it looks lighter in the one little tiny bit you can see in one of the pictures. Overall, it looks to be a very nice piece, with a real feel of authenticity. I'm ready to swashbuckle away!
Very well made, if your looking for a tricorn this one is made of high grade leather
