This vintage hat was made by Dobbs in the early 1940s. It is made of a suede-finish fur felt, with an underwelt brim edge and a teardrop crease. This is typical of sporty fedoras of the wartime period. The hat has a brown leather sweatband, which bears the slanted Dobbs name. The hat was originally sold at Vandt’s Mens Wear of Missoula, Montana.
