I ordered on August 8 and received the order on August 15. I'm extremely pleased with this hat. I'm a woman who really needs the hat size 2X. I ordered 1X in another style and it was too small. Or, hardly anything is available in my size. Fortunately, this one fits. I would much rather choose among all the ladies' hats, but this one is perfectly satisfactory and does not look obviously masculine. Its interior is not slippery on my hair and it fits really well, yet not loosely enough to lose it. I was pleasantly surprised that the mink is softer than I thought from previous experience (the small hat was made of mink and I have a knitted mink vest). Thank you, FurHatWorld, and please make more women's hats (other than Russian) available in size 2X! This one is black and I may reorder in mahogany.
