1950s Champ Cowboy hat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271871672476
This vintage cowboy hat was made in the 1950s by Champ under their Champ Western line and was sold by Montana’s largest Men’s store, Weins of Butte, MT. It is made of fur felt, which was designated by Champ as 6X, but keep in mind that the X system varies widely from manufacturer to manufacturer and has grossly inflated over the years, rendering it meaningless. Champ was known primarily for its fedoras, and their western line is rare. This one has a raw edge brim, kicks front and back and a two cord ribbon. It is a 7-1/4.
