Belfry Dax - The Goods
Great summer hat. Light and breathable with a good fit.
Belfry Dax - Straw Pork Pie
Positives - for my head structure the hat is great. Has a slightly higher crown and the bill is well proportioned. It is comfortable, light, so far it's been durable. The styling is such that I can dress it up or down.
Negatives - was slightly large in size (by comparison, I have another straw Pork Pie in the same size that fits more securely), so I got spacers which work fine. The interwoven colored straw makes for a cool band, but as I have sweated heavily a couple times, the blue has started to bleed slightly into the cream color. It will "personalize" and "weather" the hat, but if it bleeds much more it may just look silly.
I like the hatbandless hatband. It adds spunk without being too formal.
