Buy this hat. It is such a cool understated officer's hat that you will get many compliments. And it is deceptively warm. Handsome and practical. You will not regret it. I have not had this kubanka for a day and I'm already getting compliments. Say again. Buy this hat. Spend the money.
I have got to relay this to you. A few days ago I was in a burger joint here in Syracuse and was wearing my new White Army kubanka when this young guy walks up to me and starts speaking Russian. He immediately recognized the hat. Turns out he was a Russian student who was attending Syracuse University. How cool is that? The photos cannot do this very handsome hat justice. You have to buy one to really appreciate it's lines, proportions and its comfort.
