I saw one of these on Ira Gitlin at the Blob’s Park Buddy Holly tribute concert back in early February, and commented on what a cool jacket it was. Somewhat weirdly, the next day I found a nearly identical jacket and snapped it up. It’s funny how the world works.

This vintage hat, like the other 1920s one I’m selling at the moment, was made by the Gordon Hat Company. It is a forest green fur felt, with a long nap velour finish. This felt finish was popular in the 1910s and 1920s. The hat is in the fuzzy middleground between fedora, homburg and lords hat, with flanging similar to a homburg, but a stitched overwelt brim. This style pretty much dropped off the radar by the 1930s. The hat has a wide purple ribbon, which has a feathered trailing edge. Other than Cavanagh, this bow detail, so popular at the time this hat was produced, was dropped by most hat manufacturers by the end of the 1930s. The hat has an unreeded russet color sweatband, marked “genuine velour”. The liner has long since gone missing. The sticker size tag on the rear seam of the leather is still legible, and reads 7-1/4. The hat has the old style large union tag, size stamp and a Gordon manufacturer’s tag.Size: 7-1/4Brim Width: 2-1/4″Ribbon Width: 2-1/4″
