This fantastic vintage hat is red red RED! We love it, and we know you will, too.
The velvet hat is a wonderful beret-style, flopping jauntily to one side. While the shape is relatively subtle, this beauty is wildly stylish. It's that fire-engine red that really draws the eye.
Not too orange, and not too blue, the red is perfect and would work with anyone's complexion.
As you can see, the interior of the cap is lined with a very light, beige-colored grosgrain. The interior band is lined with a wide strip of heavy red grosgrain ribbon.
The original maker's tag can be seen affixed to the red ribbon and reads "Colby Adj." The tag is slightly frayed at the edges.
While the top of the hat is floppy, the straight brim is stiff; this allows the hat to fit securely yet comfortably on the head.
There is a teeny-tiny spot on the band where the velvet has lost its pile slightly, though this is barely noticeable. There are also one or two minuscule spots on the band. Overall, the hat remains in spectacular vintage condition.
Try this beauty with a boyfriend-style jacket or a sexy shift and let it do all the talking!
