This is the walking hat made in northwest Ireland of tweed, the fabric preferred by the Emerald Isle's sportsmen for centuries. Crafted from Donegal tweed, the same locally raised 100% wool fabric used when it was originally made in 1968 to be paired with blazers or sweaters, its varied flecks and blends of color are the result of centuries of tweed-making skillcraft. It is fully lined with viscose taffeta and has a sweatband and taped interior seams. The hatband has a removable feather (colors may vary). Sizes L (7 3/8 - 7 1/2) or XL (7 5/8 - 7 3/4).
How To Determine Your Hat Size
To get the proper fit in a hat, we recommend that you measure your head to determine your proper size according to the standard hat sizing chart shown below.
How to Measure Your Head
- Use a good quality tape measure, such as those used for sewing, to achieve the most accurate measurement.
- Wrap the measuring tape around your head. The tape should be placed where you want the hat to rest, usually 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch above the top of your ears. For the best-looking and most comfortable fit, the bottom of the tape should touch your eyebrows while positioned straight around your head. Don't pull the tape too snugly or your hat will fit that tightly.
- Once you've positioned the tape exactly where you want it, measure to the nearest one-eighth inch, or three millimeters.
- Measure your head a second and third time to ensure accuracy.
