  • Fur Felt

  • Silk Satin
This iconic fedora hat is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than on the cream silk satin lining which is soiled. The lining is stamped: Lock & Co. Hatters, St. James Street, London, Established 1759, Registered Trademark.

As per Brooks Brothers: "As the oldest hat shop in the world, Lock and Co. Hatters has provided headwear for men of distinction since 1676. From their home on St. James's Street in London, Lock and Co. serves a client base that includes His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh as well as the Prince of Wales."

The leather sweatband is stamped with the same Lock & Co Hatters logo and information as the lining; on the other side of the sweatband it reads: Made in England for Brooks Brothers. There is also the monogram: S D H. stamped into the leather.

There is no size indication on the hat; the interior measures approximately 21.25".

What a wonderful example of 1950s men's hat style at its best! This creation would certainly enhance - or be the focal point of - your contemporary or vintage ensemble and would be a fantastic addition to your vintage hat collection.
