J.Crew: Wool Herringbone Bucket Hat Review

Here's J.Crew's Wool Herringbone Bucket Hat (item #17901). It comes in two sizes: S/M and M/L, and four different colors. I'm wearing the hat in the butterscotch color.


So regarding the size, I'm wearing a size S/M, which is 56 cm (basically 22 inches) around. By comparison, the M/L is 58 cm (basically 23 inches (slightly smaller - 22.8)) around. I debated on sizes for awhile, as I will admit I have a pretty big head. :) I ended up going with the S/M after my measuring my head a bunch of times, comparing the different ways I'd wear it (at an angle, straight up and down, etc.), and eventually settled on the S/M. I'm happy with the fit. I think i would have worked fine with a M/L as well, but I think it would have been just a smidge too big if I were wearing it straight up and down, but would have worked well if I were wearing it at an angle.

The wool herringbone is really nice and soft. It's midweight I'd say, and is a nice thickness. I'd say that it's a really nice fall hat. It's cute and fairly stylish, and is availabe in some really nice, neutral colors. The hat has a band that goes around the front which is attached with buttons on either side and adds a nice detail to an otherwise basic hat.

That's cute! I was obsessed with a hat similar to that one from the Gap last winter, but my head was too big for it haha :)

Cute hat. I ordered the same size but it felt a bit small on me. It looks really cute on you. :)

Julia - Haha, I have a pretty big head, so I bet this would fit! I'm glad I'm not the only one :)

Ashley - I am not normally a hat person, but I loved it in the lookbook. I actually got it in two other colors. We should definitely go shopping, when're you around? I haven't talked to the Boston group in awhile though :-/

A Bigger Closet - Thanks! Are you going to exchange it?

Heidi - Thank you :)
