I noticed this hat on Paul Stuarts website. Generally I find Paul Stuart a bit overpriced but having stuff I really liked. Anyways, is this hat overpriced?

Picked a rounded spread collar (it was so new they didn't even have a catalogue number for it yet) with double button barrel cuffs and hidden front...
I'm in Paris and a place near my hotel caught my eyes with some display shoes. I went in and they had an array of whole cuts, oxfords, boots etc. They say Goodyear welted, Ypson's of Paris and London.
