This early 1950s mens classic bowler hat is by the Knox Hat Company of Fifth Avenue, New York City. Knox Hats, which had been at 620 Eighth Avenue for more than 40 years and whose owner could trace his Times Square hat-selling lineage to 1926 created nothing short of impeccable hats with perfect proportions in excellent materials and workmanship.

The body of the hat is in brownish - green felt with a dark brown/black gros grain hat band and pheasant feather accent. Note: The color is slightly more green in cast than the photos indicate....still a great color though.

The gold Knox is heat stamped into the black leather sweatband. Benny's Men Wear Shop, 171 8th Ave New York, N.Y. is also stamped into the band. The hat is in good condition, with some slight fading to the color. The size is not indicated, but here are the general measurements:

APPROXIMATE OVAL CIRCUMFERENCE: 20.75"
APPROXIMATE OVAL LENGTH: 7.25"
APPROXIMATE OVAL WIDTH: 6.25"
BRIM WIDTH: 2"
CROWN HEIGHT: 5.5"
