    The 1950s

    Brims started getting skinnier as the decade progressed. Crowns started becoming more tapered and shorter. Towards the end of the decade, "stingy brim" hats started appearing, which will be discussed more in the 1960s section. Remember that none of these changes occurred with the change in decade, that it was a fluid change over the years. Some manufacturers held on to older styles for longer, and a manufacturer would probably be producing hats for a younger market and a more conservative market at the same time.

    Sweatbands

    Sweatbands start to narrow. Reeded Sweatbands are found on the majority of hats. Brown is still the color of the decade.

    THE 1960s

    For the most part, brims shank down to somewhere in the 2 inch region, though in some cases it was much less. You do see hats with brims greater than 2-1/4", but they are not the majority they once were. Ribbons grew proportionately wider. Crowns lowered and tapered.
    The welt edge seems to have overtaken other edge finishes.















    Extreme Stingy brim


    More conservative style.

    Sweatbands

    Black overtook brown as the sweatband color of choice. The leather of the sweatband narrowed.
