This gorgeous vintage hat is THE picture of ladies-who-lunch Manhattan style.
As perfect for church as it is for the Kentucky Derby, this beauty is absolutely timeless.
As you can see, the hat is made of dramatic black wool and features a classic shape with tall, rounded brim and medium width upturned brim.
However, it's the details that make this hat so eye catching.
A wide band of pleated black net wraps around the outer band and culminates at the back in an enormous bow.
The bow has great height and volume while the ends extend over the brim.
Best of all, the outer band is accented with big, bold domed glass pearls.
In a sea of dramatic black, these little embellishments make a sensational detail.
The hat remains unlined as is it typically unnecessary to include a lining in a wool hat of such exceptional quality.
There is a small manufacturer's mark imprinted in white on the underside of the crown; though it is quite worn the words "100% Wool" are still completely legible.
Though the brim and interior show a few very minor dents, this gorgeous hat remains in outstanding vintage condition.
It isn't often that a hat combines sexy and stylish so beautifully; we know you'll love this piece as much as we do.
