I have been buying Tilleys hats for several years now. Lately there have been complaints about quality but I recently purchased one of these in Black and White as well as a waxed bucket hat in natural color. I thought maybe I over did it but I really like the hats. They fit well and the quality is decent. The best part is they pack very easily .
You can wear the bucket hats in many ways. I wear mine as a fedora quite often.
So I was pleasantly surprised in conclusion .
