Hi, I'm Dustin here on behalf of Expert Village and today I'm going to show just a few different styles or whatever's on your hat. We'll start here. This here goes on your head. This part here is called the crown, also the body. This here's called the brim; generally it's a four inch on a traditional hat. This here is the hat band, the buckle, real simple. Another easy thing; here's the sweat band, keeps from sweat and dirt and grime seeping through your felt and create a nice stain on the outside. Here's satin lining most felt hats have. This one here happens to be Ceretelly six X. Now the x's - when you're looking at hat's x's determine how nice the hat is, the quality, the higher x's the better the hat. Now keep in mind that the x's also go in different categories. It's going to be different for a beaver, full beaver as it is going to be for a wool. But they just basically tell you how what kind of hat you're buying. Now there're also little special features with hats like this one here happens to have a bound-age. As you'll see, these come in all different colors, shapes, and sizes you can think of.
