Overview

Weather-resistant and extremely durable, Donegal wool tweed has long been one of the world's highest quality fabrics and a symbol of the Irish county where it is made. This tweed hat with a removable pheasant feather tucked in the band is a timeless way to protect against wind and weather. A patchwork of herringbone and houndstooth reflects the area's quilting traditions and retains the tailored look of a bygone age.

Details

Made in Ireland. Wool, with poly lining and inner cotton sweatband. Each hat is unique and patterns will vary.

Cultural Facts

In the shadow of the Bluestack Mountains in northwestern Ireland, the town of Donegal has been renowned for its handwoven wool tweed for generations. A skilled weaver, working at a bench loom, could make up to 30 yards of fabric in a day, using home-raised wool that was often dyed using natural and local materials including moss, yellow gorse, and blackberries.


Today the town's largest manufacturer of wool tweed is the Magee, Molloy & McNutt factory, which presides over Donegal's town center in a large redbrick building. The fabric is prized by the largest international fashion houses as well as tourists looking for an authentic piece of highest quality Irish artisanry. About 25 local craftsmen still work on hand looms in their homes, filling the demand for the bespoke look of a well-tailored tweed suit or cap.

I love the hat. Unluckiy \, I needed an XXL (size 8) that was out of stock. I accepted an XL thinking that it would work. It does, but not very well.

Sizing info incorrect, but well made.

The hat is very well made. Not as colourful as the photo, unfortunately. The brim is not flat (it's bent in several spots), but may have been where it was made. I hope I can use steam to maybe straighten it out. My main issue is with the sizing. I first ordered a size Medium due to the lame sizing info, but the hat was way too small. I have purchased many hats before and know I measured correctly. I returned it and exchanged with an XL size, which is 1/4-1/2 size too big but I can work with that. The shipping costs are too high to do this again.

I really like the hat, unfortunately it was crushed when I received it. I tried to fix it and I couldn't. I returned it for exchange and I am looking forward to receiving soon. Also the one pictured in the ad had some light blue in it which really caught my eye and I requested that the replacement have some blue in it as well.

My hat collection is extensive and each is carefully selected. I have received many compliments on this hat, which coordinates well with many different styles and colors of clothing, especially my classic corduroy jackets. It was a great present from my wife and I love it!

I'm half Irish and love the fact that this hat is made of Donegal Tweed. It's hard to find hats that fit my large head, but this one is perfect.
