We Love these Hats My children, Husband, My Father and Myself are all amazed with them, the material is of great quality, and the sizes are perfect. the little notes on the post card also add an extra little touch which we loved, and we will be ordering more. :D
Beyond expectations - absolutely love the colour, shape and fit of the Charlie - I would describe her as my absolute favourite accessory. Online shopping for a hat can be daunting but I found Me & the Brave made the process unbelievably easy. Clear measurements and good quality pictures of her product helped me to buy with confidence. Product was beautifully packaged and delivered overnight, and was followed up with a personalised email to ensure all was ok. Great small business I would certainly support again. Go on... you wont be disappointed :)

The hat of my dreams. The quality of my Me and the Brave Charlie is beyond what I expected for the price. Impeccable construction, shape and fit. Love the dust bag also! My summer staple. Happy to recommend, you will NOT be disappointed.
