Got this last year
https://thathat.shop/product/foldable/


It's incredible. I prefer to wear it over my shabbos hat

I use it every day, take it in my suitcase when traveling

It looks amazing, and it's extremely comfortable/durable.
Did you compare the two? Hat Box and ThatHat?

Seems they're the only places in Lakewood that make such a hat.
 One sells for 209 and one for 250(Thathat).

   Not much of a price difference but wondering if someone tried both or compared the two before jumping to buy one?

@Dan if it's your thing, maybe some companies would send you a hat for review? Then a one year later review
Bellisimo comes to mind

I hear that.
 Not much time to spare. Just picked one up from thatHat.
 Seems they now have 2 different sizes. While the larger brim has a taller crown and deeper snap. Comes down a bit more the front brim.
  While the smaller one is nice. But the crown is a tad to short. Where it hits my head. But overall liked that one better from the two. (Smaller brim).

Will put it to use and see how it holds up. Cost was $250.

I'm confused by these $250 weekday hats.

I spent $240 on Rafi's Borsalino Shabbos hat.

I recall my first weekday hat being a fraction of the cost of my Shabbos hat. What am I missing?

I've seen many already wearing this hat for Shabbos.

Besides, it can roll up into a tube, which makes it easy for travel, and will supposedly look nice and pristine when you unfold...

Couple months ago I davened shachris in Chabad yeshiva Pittsburgh.
Boys were wearing all sorts of hats that reminded me of the 60s.
Those hats like Kangol style with 1 brim in front...
If Cleveland is similar.....

Otherwise it sounds like ur looking for the Yeshivishe hat.
Which borsalino is 240? Torino?

I don't think Chabad particularly cares about these things

@myi

So you got this hat specifically for travel purposes?

Is this good as a Shabbos hat as well?

Does it compare to a Borsalino? Or is it two different ballgames.

It's extremely comfortable.
I use it every day and also for shabbos occasionally (it's not as nice as borsolino)
I use it when I travel as well. It's really incredible.
I was also hesitant and didn't want to spend $250 which is why my wife had to get it for me as a birthday present
But looking back now I would highly recommend.

I believe that in (some parts of) Europe, from when the become Bar Mitzvah until certain age, they only wear the ordinary black hat (fedora) on Shabbos. And during the week they wear this kangol style cap...
