Sharik is a classic style of Russian hat meaning "little ball". It stands to reason that this model represents the traditional Russian hat. This model is properly proportioned and the abutting seams are hidden by specially selected longer middle hairs of the fur. Its universal round shape gives this hat a stylish and modern appearance no matter what current fashion trends dictate. A special tape adjusting band inside the hat enables you to decrease the size by 2-3 cm. Why pay twice for a counterfeit from Canada instead of a genuine warm fur hat from Russia?
