Whether you make it whimsically long, or just a little bit slouchy, Fletcher’s easy, relaxed style makes it the perfect unisex hat.

The medium-slouch hat measures approximately 9¼” [23.5 cm] tall, and has a gently rounded crown decrease section.

The super-slouchy cap measures approximately 11” [28 cm] tall, and has a longer, more tapered, crown decrease section. Add a tassel for more fun.
