1910s Stetson velour fedora hat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271206289096

This vintage hat was made in the 1920s by the John B. Stetson company. It is made of a luxuriant fur felt velour. It has a raw edge brim, flanged somewhere in-between what we now think of as a fedora, and a homburg. It has a twisted bow with an intentionally frayed trailing edge, a popular detail at that time. It was originally sold by the Marshall Field Company. The sweatband bears their stamp, but not the Stetson mark. The back of the leather shows Stetson’s stamp, Lot 5992, which places the sweatband in somewhere in the early 1920s timeframe. There are signs of stitching from an unreeded sweatband, which would indicate that this early 1920s sweatband is a replacement, and that the hat itself was made prior to WWI.
The felt is in very good shape, as is the sweatband.

Size: 7-1/4
Brim Width: 2-5/8″
