Not a bad hat overall, but overpriced Not a bad hat, though overpriced at $40. The wool felt is OK, but not great. A lot of people have mentioned that the brim won’t stay turned down – that’s because you have to re-shape these to your taste (just like the originals). Easy to do just holding it over a teakettle and working it into the desired shape gradually (do not soak the felt, just get it warm and damp as you go, going thru several repetitions in the process until the right shape is reached). Once you have it the way you want it, set it upside down on a clean surface and gently block it between two objects that will keep the brim in the desired shape until the felt cools and dries. Then the shape will be set.It’s a decent costume hat, but nowhere near the quality of an actual fur-felt hat would be. The brim was a little narrower than I’d expected.

Classy, Quality, and Durable @ a Great Price I’ve been looking for a quality hat with a real brim, that wasn’t made of plastics or pleather. After years of searching I can finally say I’ve found a hat that is sturdy, reliable, and didn’t cost an arm and a leg.I used a bit of steam to shape the brim and after a week of wearing it. I had the brim just the way I wanted it!. This is a great hat for those that want to look nice everyday but don’t want risk ruining their expensive and delicate, vintage.

Retro look, good quality, don’t get black unless you like Jewish fashion. Really nice hat for the price, the one I got was thick and stiff wool, water repellent, and vey comfortable. However the brim came completely flat, and I got it in black, so everyone thought I was Jewish whenever I wore it. It doesn’t have a snap brim, so if you want to shape the brim yourself you’ll need a steamer, which is a hassle.I think the grey would be a better option. It is highly reminiscent of the 20’s large brims, however in modern context, it looks very dated, which is perfect if you’re going for that look.If you are looking for a more contemporary looking fedora with a snap brim that can be worn up or down, I highly highly recommend Bailey of Hollywood’s famous Tino fedora, which is slightly more expensive, but I think fits the bill of what most people imagine a fedora to look like.That being said, this Belfry Gangster (at least the one I received) was excellently made, and the ribbon didn’t come with a pin, but it did come with the…
