1930s Steefel fedora

Now on eBay! LINK

This vintage fedora was made in the early 1930s by “D H Co”. Danbury Hat Company, maybe? It was sold by Steefel Brothers of State Street, Albany, New York – Specialized Shops for men, boys and girls. It has typical early to mid 1930s dimensions, tall, straight sided crown, short, raw edge brim, wide ribbon. The liner has great double pleated detailing, and a wide leather sweatband. It is unreeded and, as typical of sweatbands of that era, has dropped some stitches. The leather itself is still in great shape. The back seam is taped instead of stitched, as was common in the 1930s. There are a few shallow moth bites on the brim, but they are only noticeable upon close inspection.

Size: 7-1/8
Brim Width: 2-1/4″
Ribbon Width: 2″
Crown Height: 5-3/4″
Sweatband Width: 2-3/8″
