This hat is 100% virgin wool and is a rich grayish brown houndstooth by Pendleton. As shown in one photo, the feather detail on the hatband is a light finishing touch to a great tailored style. The Pendleton label in the interior crown is still protected by the clear plastic coating and the interior looks as if it was never worn. The size label is intact and indicates size 7 1/8 as well as stating "Made In USA" I cannot find anything to make you think this hat is brand new so it has arrived from the mid-century in a time machine.
It will wear well in the coming Autumn and Winter months and will look great for Spring when it's still chilly. Whether you are a fan of Bear Bryant or Bob Hope or even a modern day Sherlock Holmes, you will be proud to be seen in this very dapper hat!
