5.0 out of 5 stars it ain't half good ma'am 23 July 2012
Colour Name:Khaki|Verified Purchase
bought for the jubilee and will have outing's at other pomp and circumstance affairs such as prom concerts etc!, delivery- great, manufacture- great, can't fault it really. this is not the wider brim style as per explorer/dr.livingstone i presume ?...as an aside i was horrified to find how practical the damn thing is! jubilee party was a sweltering affair in a field- the v front protects the nose whilst maintaining good vision, the brim whilst not wide protects the tops of ears and nape of neck and the height means it is cool and not at all sweaty to wear. might look like a nit but dash it all a damned well thought out piece of kit! hussah! ....by the way do excuse me i seem to have invaded your country. terribly sorry old boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fancy dress hat at a good price 19 July 2012
Colour Name:Khaki|Verified Purchase
I bought this for a fancy dress party and went for one of the less cheap ones. I am very happy I did as this was a very good buy. Good quality, a good fit - not uncomfortable at all, in fact I pretty much wore it constantly all night, including dancing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 26 Jun 2013
Colour Name:Khaki|Verified Purchase
Just the ticket for the Gentleman Explorer and Promenade Concerts too. Excellent service and delivery, actually arrived well before they said it would. The hat is well made, comfortable and looks to be quite hard wearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carry on Up the Khyber! 22 April 2012
By Bob J
Colour Name:Khaki|Verified Purchase
Excellent item. Unlike the Solar Topee (white pith helmet) I bought earlier, this helmet fits me perfectly straight out of the box and will also adjust down to a much smaller size to fit my wife! Quality is good; it's very light, and is also quite comfortable so can be kept on for long periods, which is a major point in it's favour as it's for a Steampunk outfit and will probably be worn a lot!
