Fabulous large Breton hat. The straw weave detail even wraps underneath. The top is solid black. By Leslie James for Innes Dept. Store, Wichita, Kansas; the major department store in my hometown before it became just another Macy's.
Breton style which means a rounded or flat-crowned hat with a brim that turns up around the edges, originally worn by peasants in Brittany, a region in France.
