I wore my Belfry Italia hat during our recent trip to Italy. It is hard to find the right hat of a "older man" when traveling abroad. This is the right hat for the mature European traveler. It is much better than caps you see worn in the U.S.
The selection of styles and representation of all classic or traditional hats is the best thing about Hats in the Belfry. I'm happy with the linen short-brim fedora I bought, "Belfry Italia Mauro." The quality is solid, although the cost to quality ratio may be slightly higher than it should be. If the trade off is decent quality but impressive selection and styles to choose and a reliable standard for a hat supplier, I'm content to pay well. I plan to order a wool fedora or trilby for winter.
