i got this for my friend for his birthday. i tried it on to see how it fit before i gave it to him. good thing cause theres two buttons in the hat to keep the beard on and one of them fell off on the first wearing. so i went crazy with the sewing needle and and put the broken one back on as well as reinforced the other one. it works pretty good now and he loves it. maybe i got a defective one, maybe not. but its a nice hat without the beard and a hilarious accessory with it on.
