20s inspired asymmetric linen cloche sun hat made of designer French waxed linen with a contrasting black linen band and fully lined with a grey cotton chambray. The ZUTpascale design has a dramatic, elegant asymmetric shape with an elogated crown and cleverly integrated hat band in a contrasting colour. I use the non-waxed side of the linen on the outside of the hat but I do find the coating on the reverse helpful in giving body to the fabric without using any man made interfacing that can make a hat hot to wear in the summer. Despite the 20s reference, the ZUTpascale is definitely a contemporary hat that can be dressed up for a wedding (try it with a fresh flower or favourite brooch pinned to the side) or down with jeans or a narrow long coat for shopping or commuting. Also suitable for gardening and walking. A striking hat made of the highest quality fabrics and carefully finished for a perfect shape.
