This vintage straw hat was made in the late 1960s- 1970s and was sold by JC Penney. Penney’s was known for their hats, formerly retailing their store brand “Marathon” hats. This one is made simply under the JCPenney label. It is made of straw with an open weave, and blocked with a squared off cattleman’s crease. The sweatband, as was the case of many straw hats of the period, is an imitation leather, and has hardened, but is still in solid condition, with no cracking. The hat looks like it was barely ever worn, a rarity for straws like this.
Brim Width: 3-1/4″
