This variation of a Fedora with a very tall crown is stunningly different in that the body of the hat is actually woven....strips of ivory wool felt are woven through the deep rich brown base of this hat. The brown body is made from that soft velour finish felt and contrasts nicely with the ivory strips. The end result is quite striking and original. The hat has no outer hatband, but a little brown bow is added for more detail. The hat is crowned with the dark brown wool felt. This hat is unlined leaving the woven strips also visible on the inside. There is a very dark brown grosgrain hatband (2 ¼") on the inside of the hat. A sensational winter hat that is sure to make a strong fashion statement!
Condition: Very Good
I would have used the "Excellent" rating on this hat, but for one very small moth bite on the dark brown crown of this hat. Otherwise, very clean condition.
