At Real Deal Brazil, We're all about the tarp
A few years back, Mr. P., as we affectionately call the founder of our little Greenville, N.C., company, was traveling along the coast of his beloved Brazil when he spied something intriguing in one of the local markets there: Wide-brimmed hats handcrafted out of wonderfully weathered old cotton canvas, with heavy stitching, shifts in color, fraying, stains, rips, punctures, patches and even occasional ink marks. Mr. P. immediately began inquiring about the unusual hats, learning that their material was actually old canvas tarps discarded by Brazilian trucking companies after lengthy use as protection for freight. A romantic in the broadest sense of the word, Mr. P. was instantly as hooked by the story as he had been by the hats themselves.

Let me start by saying I love these hats! I have had 3 now since purchasing my first in 2010. They are a great hat and usually need to be replaced because of my sweating and rough wear on the hats. Just got my third one as a Christmas present and it was too small, when compared to the current one I wanted to replace it is two sizes smaller than the previous two I owned, and checked website to confirm that they are listed as 'one size fits all'.

I have owned a few of these. Overall they are amazing and stand up to punishment. I have had the stitching fail on the brim and that is why I usually need to buy a new one.

Bought this for my husband because he works construction and needed something that could withstand rough conditions and he absolutely loves it.

Was looking for a new cap that is not very tall in the head area and also had no branding on the outside. This was perfect because of the above and it has a cool story behind it.

A patch on the front side of the cap crown looks manufactured and unnecessary;
Thanks For The Complimentary Shipping;

Disappointed in the cheap thin material on the underside of the brim and the cheap velcro closure at the back.
Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
