  • Vintage from the 1970s

This set includes a Knox New York men's classic fedora in a plaid design. The self-fabric band is accented with a loop and point embellished with two feathers in gold and rust tones. The brim is upturned all the way around and has a self-fabric finish. The inside is marked "Knox" with the Knox emblem. There is no size or other markings but the inside diameter of the hat measures 21 1/2" (or size 6 3/4). I date the hat at around the late 60s to early 70s mostly because there is sign of hair product inside and because my grandfather used to wear this style around then. Not highly accurate dating but that is my estimate.

The box still holds the interior shaping for safely storing (or shipping) the hat. It is in remarkably good condition with only a couple scuffed corners and some sticker residue on the top right corner of the lid (see photo). The Knox emblem sits on top and reads "Registered - Moveo et Proficio - Knox New York." The box measures 13 1/2" x 11 1/2" x 6".

The hat is in need of a thorough cleaning. The inside has obviously seen use and shows the marks of hair oil or another hair product (maybe Brylcreem?). Outside, there are signs of perhaps dust that has settled into the fabric and dulled the color somewhat. But an experienced cleaner should be able to restore its color and style and it does not seem faded at all. The feathers are all intact but do need a good preening as they have separated, as feathers often do. Otherwise, it is in very good condition with no tears or pulls to the fabric.

The hat fabric contains lines of light and dark brown, rust and light blue. Very natty in it's time, I'm sure!

Questions? Please convo me as all vintage items are sold AS IS. It is always my policy to refund the difference if the actual shipping costs are more than $1.50 below the calculated shipping cost. Thank you!

I received the shoe clips a couple weeks a go, sorry for my late reaction. I already wore them on different kind of shoes and think they are beautiful!
