    Good one--looks like the Officer cut off the flap to cover the vent holes in winter. Does it have the cut-outs on the side of the wreath?

    Thanks Stonemint Your opinion is always valued,as are all of the amazing headgear you post...No it doesnt have any on the sides of the wreath, the wreath is a loose fit,seems to have been fitted that way
