Vintage Fedora Men's Hat
It has a 2" snap brim and a 2" wide nylon hat band.
Hats are SEXY. Fedora's are even sexier than most hats. They add an air of mystery and confidence to man's appearance in a Dashiell Hammet or Humphrey Bogart sort of way.
This hat was originally sold through Hess Bros, a long-gone Midwest retailer. The Hess Brothers name is stamped on the inner leather portion.
Hess’s Department Store was a unique department store that with a combination of style and showmanship became a shopping legend for almost 100 years. Hess’s was founded in 1897 in Allentown by brothers Max and Charles Hess. From its start as a dry goods store, it became the downtown heart of Pennsylvania’s third-largest city for much of the 20th century. Its reputation was further enhanced by Max Hess’s son, a showman for merchandising.
On the main floor was the Store for Men Men's Furnishings • Men's Sportswear • Men's Slacks • Men's Shoes • Young Men's Sportswear • Men's Clothing • Men's Outerwear • University Shop
