La qualité de ce chapeau est bluffante ; il est léger, doux à tomber, le procédé "mélusine" le rend vraiment unique, il est très agréable à porter et ne passe pas inaperçu. Je rêvais d'un hambourg aussi beau, il surpasse mon Robert Heath. Voilà un couvre-chef qui vaut largement son prix et l'attente pour sa fabrication.
