This Sears mail order wool felt cowboy hat dates from the 1930s through mid 1940s. It was an inexpensive working man’s hat, and while it has a cheap wool felt body, it has a nice leather sweatband and good quality ribbon work. Usually companies skimp on costs the other way around.
This long hair Aetna cowboy hat dates from the early 1930s or so. It has a high crown, wide, kettle curled brim and great graphics. But what makes it really unusual is the color. How about that wild turquoise color?!
I got this Brasiliano hat shipped over from Italy. It’s a Borsalino knock-off, and while the quality isn’t AS nice, it’s still pretty good, with a very nice fur felt body. The sweatband’s not the best, but it is leather.
