I didn’t choose the colors for this hat. I don’t know if I would have put dark blue and dark red together on my own but it turned out great. The model of the hat was my roommate and she picked out the colors. She is a bit shy so she agreed to model several hats for me if I gave her that one for free. She also came up with the idea for making the brim one color and the main hat another. I wasn’t sure if those colors and that style would look good but it turned out wonderful!
