Dobbs Fifth Ave felt Fedora with braided band and feather in great shape. The box is included and is also in good shape with original shelf inside still intact. This one is a size 7. I've kept the card of the original owner inside the band.

Figured I would include a little information on the Dobbs company....

Hatco Inc. is a leading hatmaker of western hats and the maker of the Dobbs dress hats line. The company's history dates back to the 1930's or prior when the company name was Hat Corporation of American and they were located at 417 Fifth Avenue, New York. The Dobbs label and name represent the finest quality hats, and they continue to manufacture both felt and straw dress hats.

Classic hat styles include the fedora, and homburg. The fedora was common in the 1940s when newsmen stuck their press cards in the band. This style was revived on Wall Street during the 1980s. When you think Homburg, think Winston Churchill. Dwight David Eisenhower wore a homburg to his 1953 inauguration.

Up to 1960, men wore dress hats as a matter of course. After 1960, although dress hats fell on tougher times, there was always a hard core of hat wearers, mostly city people, who never went away. Certain well-dressed and confident men have refused to take their lids off. Additionally, felt hats with snap brims made a comeback in the early 1980s.

It shouldn't be forgotten that hats not only express the wearer's style but also keep his head dry and warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Nothing can switch up a man's look like a dress hat. The right one is icing on the cake, giving the most plain-suited, ordinary Joe a sophisticated, urbane flavor.
