This vintage boater was made in the 1950s. The body of the hat was likely made in Italy, and then finished by Luca’s Custom Made Hats, 509 John Street, Utica, NY. The hat has a traditional striped ribbon, a mesh liner, and a floating leather sweatband to help the stiff hat conform better to your head shape.
