Classic fedora style wool hat updated with a wide brim and vegan leather band.
Matador Hat styled by the FP Me community
I wanted to love it but...
I was so excited to receive this hat. While it fit perfectly, it was smashed into the very small box that also had my leather jacket. I suppose the jackets weight crushed the hat. I sadly had to return it. I am surprised that hats are not shipped better. I will not order hats from Free People in the future until i hear the shipping methods have changed.
I was beyond excited to receive this hat because i have multiple Free People hats and they are the BEST quality. But I didn't realize that I had bought them ALL in store rather than ordering them online therefore the brim and everything was perfect. Well when i received this hat last week, the brim was completely bent and had lost its shape that it was so unfixable. I immediately drove to the Scottsdale Free People store to return it and get my money back! Please use a box that fits that hat and will NOT damage it and take into consideration when shipping how you are placing the hat in the box! so so sad :(
Way to large for my head
This hat came in the mail and I was really disappointed. I was hoping that it would be more of a sturdy brim, when infact it is fairly floppy. Also, it was much too large for my head. I am very average, so I was not expecting that. Overall, really sad about it. I wish that there was an option for a variety of sizes, because the hat is dang cute. Just not something I could wear.
I am usually a small in hats, and this hat fits more like a medium. It has a lot of depth though so it doesn't feel like it's going to fall off my head. I ordered the grey, and I love the colour and quality! It was shipped to me on a plastic crown (as a previous reviewer suggested), but it was still squished into the box with other items, so the brim was a bit crumpled when I first took it out. I just used a garment steamer to make it flat again!
Beautiful Hat, POOR SHIPPING QUALITY!!!
I have this hat in both camel and black and love it! The style and fit are lovely and it's very versatile. My only complain with FreePeople is this in regard to hats: You should please consider that when shipping hats, to place them over a plastic crown to keep them from getting crushed. Ive ordered at least three expensive hats from FP and they've arrived with dents in them and damaged. NOT GOOD! It's VERY disheartening to spend a great deal of money on a hat (or any item for that matter), and have it arrive crushed, damaged, or not packed selectively from your warehouse. In addition to this, it also means that if the said hat arrives damaged, I have to shell out another cost to buy a new hat, hope the new one doesn't arrive damaged or crushed, and also hope that the hat I have to reorder is now NOT sold out. I love FreePeople, but this is a HUGE issue. I hope someone in upper management takes notice of this and corrects this very fixable problem. Thank you! I gave three stars due to the hat being beautiful.
Retro Felt Hat
I picked this up in the store in black and really like the look. Big broad brim and squishy felt that doesn't loose it's shape. My one thing that I don't like is that it's big. I wear a 21 1/2 in. and it's loose on my head. I wear it straight on and not on the back of my head but in a gust of wind it would fly off. Since it's not embelished, I'm thinking to keep an eye out for a hat belt that would draw it up a tad. In the meantime I just make sure I'm not around wind or wear a scarf on my head first then the hat to take up some space.
Matador in black
I love the way this hat looks in every photo I've seen...just not on me. The brim is huge. It looked liked all I needed was my broom..But seriously, the hat is made well. It holds the shape great. I can see it being warm and a good fall/winter hat. My head measures 21&1/2 inches around so this hat fit with room to spare while still holding it's position. The black is a true black. I'd recommend it if you can pull it off. Wish I could but it's going back for someone else to enjoy.
Everyone needs at least 1 hat!
Perfect for fall. Purchased the gray which I thought was best for brunette hair color. The fit was fine, fits nicely. I don't buy many hats, so it's hard for me to say if it runs small or large. Can not wait for fall/winter!
I love this hat, my only complaint is that the rust color isn't as dark in person as I expected it to be (other reviews mention this too). More of a dusky rose. I personally found the fit to be perfect since I have huge curly hair, so the extra space accommodates it (I don't honestly think this hat is as oversized as others reviews mention, unless you have exceptionally flat hair or a very small head). I've only just started to incorporate hats into my wardrobe, and this is a great start! It goes well with a lot of items I already own, and I definitely recommend it!
