This classic topper came to me with extensive damage which I have repaired to the best of my ability. The result is a very wearable boater - a great value on a hat that would cost around $150 if in perfect condition. Patches have been glued on the inside to reinforce broken areas, and close-up photos show stitching around the crown. The brim is undamaged, and the hat over all is very clean with little sign of wear. Grosgrain ribbon hatband is solid black. Inner leather band is in excellent condition. Size is in the medium or average range.
