Comprised of imported charcoal gray Italian cashmere for the exterior panels. The top visor is made of midnight black full grain lamb napa leather, identical to the interior of the world's most elite luxury vehicles. The under visor is gunmetal gray silky pig suede. Like all melin hats, it is lined with proprietary moisture wicking performance fabric to keep the sweat stains away. It also features a hidden "besom" stash pocket, stainless custom molded eyelets, custom button backing, and custom snap.
Each Melin hat is hand inspected for 28 points of quality as it comes off the production line. Once it passes inspection, the Certificate of Authenticity is stamped with the Official Melin Seal and the hat and certificate are loaded into the Melin Travel Box.
The Melin Travel Box is made of a faux leather with durable impact resistant walls. It utilizes a hidden magnet closure system and can be left open as a display box, or closed to protect and preserve the Melin hat.
The Melin Travel box is significant as part of the Melin experience. It was inspired by the ancient art of millinery wherein a customer would order a custom hat from his local town milliner and upon completion the hat was always delivered in its own hat box.
