Great Golf Hat

Product reviews that you submit to Hartford York are edited for clarity, spelling and length; however, one top review from customer Gary M. of Frederick, MD, deserves its very own blog post.

Gary purchased The Outback, a raffia straw hat by Scala with leather chin cord and broad, sun-shielding brim. I like this hat for its comfortable wear (there’s an elasticized sweatband) and casual style. Gary’s full review reads as follows:

This is one of two hats I ordered that came out of the box looking great — better even than the online pics. I ordered The Outback as a replacement golf hat, selecting it in part because of the chin string. Had to bail from the golf cart one too many times when the wind whipped off my previous straw golf hat, sans chin string. Plus, we’ll be on a cruise in about a month, and I figure if the wind blows your hat off then, I’d only be able to chase it so far . . . anyway, I’ll consider raffia weave in the future. Rugged but polished, fits great.

One note, I measured 22.5″ and was in-between M & L size, and opted for the larger size because of my experience with sweatbands similar to this one where a M was a bit snug. I thought it would make more sense to go with the L thinking the snug fit would translate into L feeling more like M; sort of worked out that way, but I believe the M would have worked as well because of the construction.

Aside from that, I found on my first outing with it, that while the string sort of duels with my cigar while bending over a putt and sometimes clips off the ash, I found a careful positioning of the cigar as it passes through the string opening mitigates the conflict.

I’m very satisfied with the hat, and plan to wear it as First Choice while out hitting the crap out of those little, white, round & dimpled friends of mine, against whom I otherwise harbor no ill will. Great golf hat!

Now that’s what I call a review!

Thanks for playing,

Five-star hats and caps

Summer Ivy Cap at HartfordYork.comWe’ve got lots of men’s hats and caps at Hartford York that have received five-star ratings from happy customers. I know that when I’m buying anything online, I always look at customer reviews, so I’m really grateful that many of you who purchase take the time to leave a review.

Although our 2012 inventory is so new as to have yet to receive reviews, a few spring/summer caps that I’ve brought back this year have at least one five-star rating, including:

The Patchogue, a linen and tropical wool blend ivy cap from JB Stetson (pictured above);

The Leonard, a leather newsboy cap from Scala. It’s a perfect cap for spring when the weather’s still a little iffy, and judging by the 7 five-star reviews this cap has received (so far!), quite a few others share that opinion.

The Degas, a milan braid fedora which, in the words of a satisfied customer is “better than expected.”

The Corazon Espinado is a stingy brim Panama hat from Carlos Santana that features hand painted artwork on the crown. Zoom in on the hat image, and you’ll see how the artwork continues onto the hat band. Very cool.

Another Panama hat that received a five-star review is The Aficionado.  This is a top of the line Montecristi dress hat from Brent Black, and the customer that bought this hat says that it’s a “great design and look.”

I look forward to reading more of your customer reviews!

Thanks for posting them,
