Gangster Era Grey Snap Brim Fedora, New Old Stock, The Californian, Styled by LaSalle, ca 1930s

$175.00 USD



  • Manufactured Wool
This grey "Process-Felted" (manufactured wool) snap brim fedora is in excellent vintage condition - it looks to have never been worn; the wool felt is soft and luxurious and the cream silky satin lining is unmarred other than some blurring of the wording due to age. The original price sticker remains on the leather sweat band: $3.95. The size tag indicates the hat to be a 7.

Please be sure to note the 2 3/4" wide brim with its quadruple stitching. The crown is 4 1/2" high and the circumference of the interior opening is 22". I am surmising that the nubby charcoal pleated hat band with its yellow, red white and black shooting lines has been put pm the hat as a replacement for the original band.

This is truly a wonderful piece of wearable millinery art and would be a great addition to your vintage hat collection - it would certainly enhance and/or be the focal point of your antique, vintage or contemporary ensemble.
