A hat that fits my head

Tania, I love my wide brim hat. I wear it all the time when going out and get loads of compliments too. I’ve always struggled to find hats that fit me so having one that fits is a blessing. Thank you �


Hi Flo, thanks so much for the review! I am so glad to hear the Charlie was a perfect fit for you! Tans x

Beautiful hat

My hat has been worn already a few times and I have to say it’s the best one I’ve had so far. The construction is really good and I can honestly say I see it lasting a long time! I’ve had similar hats that kind of look “meh” but the Charlie black I bought is super classy. I think for the price and quality, these are such a good buy! I will definitely buy again in brown and other colours should more become available. Good stuff Tania! Neph


Thank you so much for the amazing review Neph!! I am so glad you love your hat and can't wait to see you rocking more soon! Tans x

Comfortable, stylish and true to size - I love this hat!

I love my Charlie Black hat. It is comfortable, stylish, true to size, and finishes off any outfit! On the rare occasions that I’m not wearing my hat, I love how it looks on my wall. I also found MATB very easy to deal with - a user friendly site, and personable people behind it all. Best of all I had my hat in my hand by the very next day! Thanks Tans - I love it!


You're amazing, thank you Caroline! Enjoy your hats lovely xx

Absolutely adore!

The overall experience from purchase to wear has been great. Tania was amazing at getting the hat sent out super quickly after I placed my order and it was at my front door the next day. I ordered the 57cm size which is slightly on the larger side but personally I love how it sits when I wear it . Absolutely love the hat and have been wearing it almost religiously since it's arrival.


Yay Michaela! I am so glad you love your Charlie, enjoy lovely lady and thank you for leaving a review! Tans x

Perfect Ratios

Love the shape and fit of these hats. Have others similar which were more costly, but in getting the correct circumference for my head, they then were either too shallow or deep or the brim too wide. The ratios of these ones not only make them feel more comfortable, but aesthetically look better too. Great value!


Yay!! I am so glad we hat the perfect hat for you Dena! Enjoy and thank you so much for your support and such a lovely review! Tans x

Charlie Black

I love it! It is so comfy and not only looks fab on my head but jazzes up my wall quite nicely. And even when I get told by some older obviously unstylish man that my "little House on the Prairie" look just wasn't doing anything for me I still love to wear it and have definitely got a tan one next in my sights. Just to change up my "little house on the Prairie" look hehehe. And as a side note. Tania was so super lovely and helpful to deal with when enquiring about sizes. I am all about great customer service! If you are on the fence...just do it, you won't regret it.


Haha 'Little house on the Prairie' totally the look you were going for! Thanks so much for the amazing review gorgeous girl! xx
