Review: Dorfman Pacific -- Scala Collezione Hat

Happy Saturday/ Sunday!

Do you guys have any plans to hit the beach or have some fun in the sun anytime soon?
If the answer is yes, then I have the perfect hat for you!

I recently received a Scala Collezione hat from Dorfman Pacific to review for you guys. :)

First, a little something about Dorfman Pacific:


DORFMAN PACIFIC: A LEADING SOURCE OF WHOLESALE HATS FOR OVER 90 YEARS

Since opening its doors in 1921, in a small storefront in Oakland CA, Dorfman Pacific has had only one goal in mind: providing every customer with superior customer service and the best selection of headwear in the industry. Now the largest wholesaler of hats and accessories in the nation, Dorfman Pacific still maintains that same goal. We are able to offer our customers an impressive selection of brands, including Stetson, Woolrich, Cappelli Straworld Inc®, Tommy Bahama, and Scala to mention only a few. With products at every price point for every age and function, we have a hat for every head. We keep products in stock ready to ship in our 275,000 square foot, state-of-the-art distribution center in California. Our quality is unbeatable and our service is even better.


Dorfman Pacific's 2012 Collection features "many striking styles and colors and brims that range up to SEVEN INCHES! Solids, Stripes, Patterns in a choice of silhouettes and materials means that there is a perfect hat for every face and budget!"

And now, a short introduction to Scala Collezione:



Style and function uncompromised. Stylish, yet always practical in design, the Scala Collezione accessory line seamlessly combines current fashion trends and an everyday functionality in each collection. Superior UPF ratings, pack-ability for ease of travel and storage, and cold weather protection are constantly addressed without sacrificing style in a wide variety of structured straw, ribbon crushers, wool felt, and cut and sew fashion hats.

The hat I received is the:



Scala Sewn Ribbon Sun Hat - The Tres Jolie

The sewn ribbon sun hat seen here is indeed very pretty as its name suggests. It's a crusher hat with self trim and a four inch brim, and has excellent UV sun protection with a UPF50+ rating. From the Scala Collezione Ribbon Headwear collection of women's hats.

Item Number: LC511
Price: $30.00

This hat "is a very popular style because it is feminine, chic, and functional which is as perfect as a sunhat can be!"

045-1

I love this Scala Collezione hat for all the reasons mentioned above: it's feminine, chic, and functional!

It features a 4-inch brim and has an external bow trim -- a stylish and functional detail, the bow trim also serves as a sizing tie to ensure that one size truly fits all.

This hat is lightweight and is very portable -- it can be folded back into shape, making it easy to store in your bag and/or suitcase.

You can also use this for activities at home, like gardening or simple walking.

It looks great with casual and/or beach wear -- with shorts or with a sundress. :)

It is available in seven colors:



Natural, Black, Tan, Fuchsia, White, Lime, and Turquoise.

This Ribbon Crusher style hat (also known as The Tres Jolie) can be purchased here.
And good news! Just for you, my beloved readers, the price of this hat will be lowered from $30 to $24! :D
