This is a non head sized hat that will fit any head size at any angle of your choice or straight on (if you're a weirdo).

-Height of crown: 2.5"
-Brim in front: 5.5"
-Brim in back: 2.5"
-Inside circumference of hat: 21"


Very Good condition rating an 9 out of 10. There is a loose thread here and there. The butterflies may be later additions to this hat. I would have removed them, but they are glued on and I feared damaging the hat and left them as is. Ready to wear.
