A handsome vintage Elgin trilby hat in brown tweed with leather accent. The Elgin Trilby was made famous by Rex Harrison in the movie "My Fair Lady" with Audrey Hepburn. This hat is in great vintage condition and is a size 7 1/2. The band has a leather tab and there is leather seaming on the sides. Colors are light and dark browns with gray against an oatmeal background. It is silk lined, and the lining bears the hallmark of the British royalty "Dieu et Mon Droit" (literally "God and My Right" or Divine Right) and the name "In the Latest Fashion". The hat also bears a black label that faintly reads "Giovanni Severino, Via G Matteotti 33, San Remo". This is the name of the shop in fashionable San Remo, Italy where the hat was purchased many years ago.
To maintain its shape, the hat will be shipped boxed via USPS Priority Mail, insurance included.
