Good looking hat, but size is smaller than normal
I bought this hat because of the style and being water resistant. It’s rugged look is nice. It says true to size, it runs smaller. I wear a 22 1/2 hat which is the Large on the chart. It did fit my head, too tight. So when you order it, get the next size up. X large for me. It’s not a summer hat. Your head will get hot and the oil in one day of wearing it will have a bad , almost a moldy smell to it. And it’s difficult to get rid of it. I will not purchase another oilskin hat ever. I ended up washing the hat in a washing machine, with detergent and oxiclean to get the smell out. The hat does flatten out, but you can reshape it and let it air dry . My case , I put the hat on wet and shaped it to fit better while it dried on my head. Took about an hour. It also removed most of the oil from the hat and now it doesn’t have that moldy smell to it anymore. The hat still looks the same. I put a waterproof spray on it and works well. I gave it 4 stars because of the inconvenience of the moldy smell.
