I have been searching for a reasonably priced news boy hat for three years. When I found this through Zappos I was really excited. I love that hat! It was exactly what I was looking for. As for Zappos it is an awesome company and their customer service folks are the best. They are courteous, very helpful and very enthusiastic. I highly recommend Zappos to all my family members and friends. Also, I have gotten lots of compliments about my hat. I love it.

Very cute hat. I bought this for myself, (I'm a woman). I needed something to put on, after taking off a motorcycle helmet. Can't help with the fit, just guessed, but a med. fit great.

What can anyone say about a hat? Well, it fits me great, compliments my style of dress, whether dressed up in business attire for work or casual dress just hanging around on the weekends. Have recieved a few compliments and smiles which is always nice. Last but not least, keeps my head warm in colder weather!

Brands I'd also recommend: Just check out what's available at Zappo's. There are different brands for every individual taste. You won't be disappointed!

High quality. Thought I'd need an XL or an L but turns out I need a M. Good thing there's free shipping!

This Brood is very warm on my head, and the fit is perfect. It really helps with my thinning hair that I have going through chemotherapy for prostate cancer. You are a very reputable company. Keep up the great work. Happy holidays!

This is a great hat that I wear daily in the winter (even though I still have a thick head of hair). It has very nice material, tailoring, and fit. The lining material is superb. It's worth the price, bloke. I have received compliments on it.

I purchased this cap as a gift for my father-in-law who was looking for a semi-floppy retro look. This cap delivers. Zappos service was prompt and efficient.

I searched high and low for this type of cap and at a reasonable price. I ordered from two other companies, and ended up returning the caps because the quality was bad. This Brixton cap is beautifully made, fit is true to size, price was reasonable. Yayyyyy Zappos!

I got this in the gray/black herringbone and the black herringbone twill. The gray/black herringbone is beautiful and fits perfectly. I bought this for my move from sunny SoCal to a very cold wintery town with lots of know. Time will tell if this hat keeps me warm. But either way, its super stylish and I like wearing it anyways :) A note: the black herringbone twill fit weird. It didn't look right at all and was uncomfortable on my head.

Great hat. Nice sturdy craftsmanship, yet light on the head. Fits well straight on or cocked. True to size.

I love this hat. As a designer, I'm guilty of consciously wearing matching colors, so this hat works pretty universally when wearing brown or black, as there is both in the tweed pattern. It is comfortable, doesn't suffocate my head, and is warm in the often chilly San Francisco climate. My only complaint is that there was a hard pressed wrinkle when I got it in a box in the mail, so I'm manually fixing it, but it's really not a big deal.

This is a good one. Too warm for the summer, but great for the early spring, winter and fall. Color is true to the photo. As for fit - I ordered a large (hat size 7 1/2) - but truly wear a 7 3/8 - so I have a little room to spare, but not much. It runs a little bigger than my Goorin in the same style. The snap on the brim is cool - gives you a couple of different ways to wear it.

My favorite style from the Brixton line. Fits true to size, but I like to order mine a size bigger to get the full-on newsies look. With as many Brixton Brood's I own, I could probably start my own rendition of Newsies.

I have worn a wool newsboy hat for 35 years but the lining is gone and the bill almost non-existent. I have looked for a long time for a replacement and finally bumped into the Zappos site and the Brixton Brood Hat. When my wife saw me wearing the new hat she said "that looks like the young you!" Thanks Zappos.

I have been looking for a cap that looks like they style cap that was worn during the depression era of the 1930's. In my past, I bought what I thought was the right style, only to find I was wrong. I then came across the Brixton Brood. I couldn't believe what I saw; there was the cap I was looking for. I called Zappos and was connected to a wonderful customer service rep. She was more than helpful and answered any questions I had. I placed my order with no hesitation, yet fearful of making another wrong purchase. I was told I made my order before 1:00pm PST and was able to get an overnight free delivery. I couldn't believe what I was hearing thinking this all couldn't be true. The following day U.P.S. came to my door with my cap. I opened up the boxes that it came on and couldn't believe my eyes. I quickly put it on and went to a mirror to see what it looked like. There was the cap I was looking for all this time. I took it off and tried it on again and found it to be a very comfortable fit as well, not like others I had bought. I not only had a smile on my face, but a feeling that I also found a wonderful place to do whatever shopping needs I have in the future. I will certainly tell my friends and family about Zappos. If you have a fear of buying through the internet I trust, you'll find this is a wonderful site to buy from.

This is a great hat with a fantastic, hard to find look. It's a classic all around and I've gotten many compliments while wearing it. Better than a wool baseball cap; most certainly more distinctive. Look know further - this is your new favorite lid!

As always superb service. No fee for shipping or returns is one of the reasons I shop Zappos first. Brixton Brood cap is well made, lining very nice. Giving to my son for Christmas. Saw he had the very same hat on in a different color. Nicely packaged.

Can anyone help me. I want to order but my true size is about 23 inches in a new era hat a 7 3/8 is a little tight and a 7 1/2 is a little too loose. Anyway these are supposedly 22.8 inches for a med and 23 1/2 for a large...just wondering in anyones opinion if these run large or small..or if anyone has an opinion on if I should go for a med or a large. I don't want it to be too tight but I also don't want it so loose it feels like it could just fall off or come off with a small gust of wind. Anyway any help is much appreciated thanks!

I am quite pleased with my Brixton Brood. It seems to be of considerable quality, and I love the way it looks. I ordered a 7 1/4, the size hat I have always worn, and it seems a bit snug. You might consider ordering one size larger if you don't want a snug fit. The hat arrived quickly, as promised. I would definitely order from Zappos again.

This is a great hat. It's very well made, always arrives in pristine condition (properly padded etc.), and looks very sharp on either a female or male wearer. I've ordered this hat from Zappos (in black and in other colors) many times. It's soft, with a subtle, interesting twill texture. The following are in no sense "cons," but you should be aware of them. If you wear the hat unsnapped, as I do, the snap will be very visible. You can color it with a sharpie or the like. Also, the hat of course eventually grows much lighter in the sun, but I've had great luck re-dying it black, including running it through the dryer. This treatment actually restored the hat's original fit; it had stretched slightly over time. Finally, be aware that, although this hat is 100% or nearly 100% cotton, the inner lining is fairly substantial -- it's what allows the nice puffy slightly John Lennon-ish appearance when it's unsnapped. But this means the hat is a bit warmer than its all-cotton status might suggest. Hope this is helpful.

A quality hat by Brixton. It has a very nice lining and it fits and looks great. My first time ordering from Zappos. They have great prices and customer service to match. I will do business with them again.
