Pilgrim Columbia hat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400995109394
This vintage hat was sold by Sears under the Pilgrim label and Columbia model name in the late 1930s. They marketed this model to working cowboys. It is made of wool felt, a budget conscious option, with a curled brim, center dent and front pinches and a textured leather sweatband.

1930s Pilgrim Carlsbad cowboy hat

This Pilgrim Carlsbad was available mail-order throughout the 1930s and 1940s. With the quality of the trimmings on this one, I’d say it’s probably from the 1930s. It’s a big, curled brim cowboy hat, tom mix creased. And wool felt- this was a budget hat- a working man’s hat.
