Vintage 1970s Mr John Jr Natural Straw Brimmed Hat
When you think of a straw hat with great style....think of this one! Molded beautifully with an upswept brim in the back of the hat and a down turned brim at the front, this woven natural straw beauty will add a touch of refined elegance to any warm weather event. The crown is deep and rounded with an interestingly shaped and twisted coil straw trim detail encircling the crown. The detail which extends onto the top of the brim off center right is reminiscent of a trefoil knot....not exactly the same, but very similar. And unlined hat with a very striking brilliant green grosgrain ribbon inner hatband, designers at Mr. John always paid close attention to every detail. The straw in this hat is so pretty and finely woven, it almost resembles linen material. For it's size, the hat is rather lightweight and very comfortable to wear. A classy compliment to your summertime wardrobe!
Condition: Very Good
This hat is extremely clean...the only mark on the straw is a very small dot of a dark spot which appears to be an irregularity in the straw, itself. If you take your hands and rub them over this hat, there are many rough "nubs" of straw that you will feel. These, also, appear to be in the natural straw and do not appear to have come from abusive wear by a previous owner....nor do they in any way take away from this fine hat from Mr. John Jr.
