1920s Berg Fedora

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401054868951

This vintage hat was made in the late 1920s-early 1930s by Berg. The hat is made for lightly heathered charcoal gray fur felt. It is from the short-lived fashion for a twisted ribbon on the right side of the hat, opposite the bow. ┬áThe bow has a feathered trailing edge, fashionable for the time, and the hat has a high, tapered crown- considered very sporting at the time. It has an underwelt brim, and an unreeded wide black leather sweatband with an embossed top edge. The hat is a 7-1/4, and has a 2-3/16″ brim and a 5-5/8″ crown.
