“The spirit of Chaos is about having unique style. Inspired by the four corners of the world. Chaos style is infinite, untameable, you cannot describe it. Because it’s where fashion and personal spirit mix.” –per the manufacturer’s garment hangtag.
I received the Chaos Beatles 100% Organic Fedora Hat and I was a little concerned if the hat could be reshaped as it was squashed flat from shipping. Luckily I was able to reshape the hat with no difficulty and I was actually impressed on how well it reshaped. The Beatles hat is made of woven raffia and has a natural (oat) color with a fedora style (soft brim and pinched crown). There are some straggler raffia strands on the hat that can be trimmed, but it is not a real concern as they are small. There is a decorative beaded thin band above the brim. It is made of silver hardware and teal color beading. The company logo is made of metal hardware and supports the decorative band in place. Inside the hat is a ribbon band I believe to help prevent irritation on the forehead from the raffia and to collect moisture.
Initial thoughts: The fit of the hat is great-does not slip way down or rides high. It is lightweight and airy. It looks great for a day at the beach or out on the town. I wore it at an Independence Day parade and I got many complements. I can’t wait to wear it around more.
