The High Shtreimel is a fur hat meant to be worn by married Jewish men of certain sects. It's set over the yarmulke for special occasions, such as the weekly Shabbat or weddings. Huh, just a fur hat, right. Nope. A traditional Shtreimel is custom made for the wearer. The manufacturers keep the way they make their wares secret. Understandable, the hats can be quite intricate, typically made with real fur from fox or pine marten using specific numbers of furs for religious significance.
This hat can be the most expensive piece of clothing in the special occasion ensemble so it's lucky that you've found this ready-made version. Maybe you're in a musical or maybe you want to see what it would be like to dip your toes into Rabbinical training. Either way, this hat will give you the look you're going for. Just remember to keep your mind sharp or someone might say, the hat is fine but the head is too small.
