The cap is good, generally. However, it's marred by the fact that the cover is uneven around the circumference of the top of the crown -- betrayed by the crooked seam atop parts of the wicker frame. The shape of the crown is not uniformly oval front to back, but the axis is significantly off-center. It might be related to the uneven stress of the top of the cover over the wicker frame. On my head however, it looks fine.

One note about the "prototype" green bell crown I also bought from you at the same time. The fit of the cover over the frame is nearly perfect! The only issue is the leather bill and chin strap that need to be dyed the correct color. They both appear to be in unfinished leather. That's not the case. The leather color is spray painted on, so dye doesn't penetrate. The paint has to be stripped off -- two layers, the light "natural" light brown and the underlying white primer coat. It's not easy, especially along the bill edges. I think I got it off as well as possible. I'll find out tomorrow how well it will take dye. A small sample area I tried looks promising. If it turns out, it'll be a great hat!
