I bought this hat to match the wing collar mahogany mink coat I had already purchased and it is absolutly fabulous. It looks so glamorous with my coat. I was delighted with the coat and I am thrilled to have the hat to match. I feel great wearing them together. The hat is secure but does not flatten my hair - it is the best fur hat I have ever had. Thanks to Mimi and the other girls in customer service who were most helpful.
