Quiet and subtle, this hat uses a simple lace pattern to create the illusion of pines, rising up from the ribbed band. Loose Leaf is a great unisex hat, and lets the wearer decide where those trees belong. Worn with the trees in front, you are ready to hike among the trees. Or turn the trees to the back, showing the world that you have been through the forest and come out the other side!
