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.
