This came home with me.
I just splurged on a totally unnecessary FP hat a few months ago—the Slipaway Sailor Cap in black, which I still totally adore and wear really frequently—but I couldn't talk myself out of this one at the Tampa FP store. They had it in both colours, and I ended up going for the black. (Only the bill is black and the body is a light grey, so the overall colour feels lighter.) I had to fuss with it for a sec so the top didn't puff up like a chef's hat, but once it settled on me, it was super rad. I actually felt that it made me, I don't know, prettier or something somehow, like it really framed the features of my face. All the girls in the store flipped out about it and made me feel awesome (shout out to the Tampa FP girls). It definitely has kind of a '90s feel about it, but also sort of British '60s feel, which is what I prefer. The brand is actually FP which is cool, as a lot of their hats seem to come from other makers. The fit is perfect. It doesn't feel tight, and it doesn't flop around on my head. Nothing but good things to say! Oh, and it might have been my new-purchase strut, but after I put this on, I got flirted with a bunch at the mall. Nothing but recommendations!
