I run a informal cooking comp for my friends each year, and part of the prize is a Chefs Hat.
This is the second time I have Purchased this exact item in 12 months. The First time (Nov 2010) was perfect, pretty good quality, excellent value and good material - looked exactly like the picture.
It was on that basis, that I decided this year to order the same one. It is in the same packaging, but it is a totally different product! the material is cheap, the size is much smaller, the quality generally is pretty ropey.
i shall be looking for another next year!!
