Rated 2 out of 5Â by salerackplease Cute, but not high quality
I saw this hat the other day on sale in one of my local stores, and I have been looking for a straw hat for the summer. I wasn't familiar with a 'cloche' style hat before, but I did not find the brim completely horizontal as the other reviewer did. It flared down on my head as it does in the picture.
My issue was with the quality of this hat. Even with the sale price, I couldn't justify how cheaply it was made. The seam was coming undone at the front of the brim, which would have had to have been sewn back to look new, and the grossgrain ribbon was cheaply glued on. I could see globs of glue by the knotted bow, as well as glue gun streams around the dome. Looks cute but no bueno.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by QuestForQualityAndStyle Not a cloche
This hat would be cute, if it were actually a cloche. It does not look in real life as it does in this picture--the brim is horizontal, instead of flared. It looks very silly, and I unfortunately have to return it. The idea of a summer cloche was so nice.
