This vintage 1960's dark brown Fedora was found at a recent estate sale and I believe is made out of wool or wool felt. It is in a man's hatbox which had an original receipt in it for the hat but I'm not sure the box is the original one to this hat. The label in the hat reads: Bradford Ltd. Fine Hats. On the leather inside hatband it reads: Glyco Tite Process, Super and on the other side: The National, Rochester which was a clothing store in Rochester NY. There is writing on the underside of the leather hatband which the owner wrote so his hat could be returned to him. The man's name was Sal and he lived on Maiden Lane. There also is the original price tag of $7.95. The hat must have been a little big for Sal as there is a folded strip of old newspaper under the hatband for adjusting it to a smaller size. I couldn't find the date of the newspaper but it mentioned 1962 in one of the articles. I didn't find a size tag. The inside circumference measures 21 3/4 in. with the newspaper intact. The hat has a 1 5/8 in. wide brim and is 4 1/4 in. deep crown.

The fedora is in very nice vintage condition. There are some tan stains on the inside cream color satin lining but no offensive odors. There are some small spots on the hat brim that are a tiny bit lighter in color only noticeable at certain angles. Inside the hat looks black but when outside in the sunlight and compared to another black hat it looks more like a very dark brown. There is a partial red feather on one side tucked under the grosgrain outside hatband. The hat box is in nice condition and I didn't find any major tears or color loss. It does have asst. light scuffs and nicks from over the years but this is a good useable box. The hat box is 14 1/2 in. long, 13 in. wide, and 7 in. high and has the insert. It has a cord carrying handle and a label on the front that reads: Resistol, Self Conforming hats.

I do combine shipping if more than one item is purchased. I don't have a set rate and figure the cost by actual weight of package to your location plus a small handling charge.

New York residents must add 8% tax.
