Chocolate brown fur felt trilby from Champs. Crown has the center indent rising 4 1/2 inches with a very narrow 1 1/2 inch brim. Wide, 2 inch black hat band with the small side feather and the Champs id pen. Interior has a black leather sweatband along with a black satin lining and center plastic covering over the Champs emblem. Inside is stamped Clarke Dept. Store, Lawrenceville Va., Champs "Feel the Felt" and Kasmir Finish. Size tags are still there, 7 1/8. Price tag is still there $9.95.
This is a trilby rather than a fedora due to the brim size. Better know as a Rat Pack Fedora.
Excellent condition showing almost no wear or age, inside and out. Color is like new and the inside is clean. The only sign of wear is a line inside the brim along the front. It is on the inside and out. I believe it was caused by being stored in the original box and the cardboard cone was against that area. Comes in the original box which is in very worn and discolored condition.
Size 7 1/8 with the inner circumference is 22.
The box measures 14 1/2 x 13 1/2 x 6 1/2
Domestic shipping will be by parcel select most places due to the required box size. International shipping will have to be via international priority. If you chose not to take the hatbox shipping will be much cheaper.
