    That makes much more sense than importing ready velour felts and having someone else finishing the hats for them. My assumption (general) was mostly based on the small G.A. initials or mismatch on big vs small or non G.A. between liner and sweatband found on post war Dunn & Co until the full...

    That's the right way to present this beauty Steve! I never managed to get decent pics of it. In addition to the great detection work regarding the maker, dating of this one -as with most (very few) Czech imported velours in UK that have passed from my hands- was (is) quite tricky, for me that...

    THE SATIN FINISH/LONG HAIR CLUB

    Stefan, fantastic velours! Excellent examples of different colors, velour finishes, styles and ribbon treatments!! I love them all. The Wilke sizing is quite odd, I think. I am wondering what did they use for size 61 for example (1 should have been 51 in that case?)

    Matt, Great!! Happy that's it fits you!! I have one Wilke "blitz" velour from the 30s, I got from Steve and the quality is really top notch. Judging from the pics, it could be that mine is slightly of longer nap I think. Not sure if it qualifies as a "soleil" though but probably more sheen. I...

    Great find, Dave! Congrats! Logo/lettering imprints are also bigger/thicker. Is it sans a plastic top cover?

    Italian brands hats

    It looks fantastic, Matt!! I love the outfit too! It was really a lucky get. This one was up for sale a year ago but suddenly the seller stoped responding. I am guessing he changed his mind. With summer and warmer temperatures he came back asking if am I still interested. The rest, you know...
