This really is a statement hat.
Made in the 1940s from blue grosgrain, it is a smart design which has to sit towards the back of your head. A close fitting crown with a wide, seamed brim - a real face framer!
It needs to fit fully on the back of your head and will fit up to a 22” head
Good with points to note;
- the outer band is stiffened to keep the shape, but the original must have perished and has been replaced with modern stiffening
- there are some snags on the fabric
- a couple of small marks
All reflected in the price and it still presents well.
