Adam Olympian 1964 Olympics uniform hat


This vintage hat was made in 1964 by the Adam Hat Company as part of the uniform worn by US athletes at the Tokyo Olympic Games. This particular example was worn by Bob Hoffman of York, Pennsylvania, coach of the US weightlifting team. Bob Hoffman was owner of York Barbell, and one of the inventors of modern weightlifting. 1964 was the last year he coached the US Olympic team,

The hat is made of bone colored fur felt. It has a classic early 1960s fedora/cowboy hybrid styling, similar to Stetson’s iconic “Open Road”, but with a two cord hatband. It has a bound edge and a black leather sweatband. Appropriately, the model name is the “Olympian”. Included in the photos below are a photo of Bob Hoffman wearing this hat at the Olympic Games, as well as two of other athletes wearing this same model which show more detail.
