Like the “Woodrow” model posted previously, this Christy’s fedora is a wool felt, but has surprisingly nice trimings.

Sold in 2010.

G.A. Dunn green fedora

This one is long since sold, but is an unusual example. You don’t see too many green felts, to begin with. This one has delicate ventilation holes, a light colored sweatband, and a fancy bow. It appears that at some point the hat was reversed, maybe to even out wear so as to avoid a hole at the pinch? The model is “The Polo”.

1970s Tyroleans

There are some hats that come with other hats I buy. Parts of big lots, freebies thrown in with ones I really want. I get them, half-way against my will, and then what do I do with them? These hats stick around longer than anything else- people won’t pay me for them, and even when I try to give them away, it’s a distinct challenge.
