Wonderfull hat, excellente manufacture ...I reccomend!!!!!!
I have been looking for a hat of such high quality for a long time. I found several hats similar to those from the Peaky Blinders series, however, the quality of the Sterkowski cap is high compared to caps that can be purchased from competitors. Thanks a lot to customer service for helping me choose Harris Tweed, it wears awsome and fits to head perfectly AAA++Report abuse

Good style.. needs slight changes
Good shape on the front of the cap. But the volume to head size ratio is too big. The back of the cap needs to loose 1- 1.5 cm in height. Specially if anyone is going for the "peaky blinders" looks, then the fit at the back of the head needs to be much tighter..Report abuse
