Vintage 1960s Ska Style Black Trilby Fedora Hat Mens Size Medium
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a great looking men’s trilby hat made in black fur felt - the felt has a slight velour finish to it. The hat was made for a Quebec department store called A.L. Green Ltee. - it is marked as “Imperial” and has a crown and various medals stamped on the liner. The sweatband read “Genuine Fur Felt”. Although the maker is not clear, the fur felt is of excellent quality,, soft and pliable and has a very nice finish. The label at the back of the sweatband states that it is a size “7”, which is a size medium, but I think that it might fit a 7 1/8. It measures 22 1/4” around the sweatband and 8” by 6 1/2” across the opening, which is more in keeping with a size 7 1/8. It is in very good condition with no noted wear. Difficult to date precisely, but I would think early 1960s, very Ska music era. In any case, this is a very nice quality hat in a great looking shape!
