    Peters Bros Shady Oaks Bankers Special 100 conversion

    I sent this hat to Art Fawcett to be cleaned and re-blocked. The sweatband was replaced because it was starting to crackle. I went to Peters Bros and bought a nice lamb sweatband so it would still have the Peters Bros logo. I kept the original sweatband and will ship with the hat. It could be reinstalled if so desired. The felt is in great condition but does have one small spot on the top of the brim by the ribbon.
    • Felt: 100% beaver from Switzerland. When the US banned the felting process that used Mercury Switzerland continued with the old process for years. Tom Peters purchased hoods from Switzerland and noted it on the sweatband.
    • Size: I’m between a 7 1/8 and 7 1/4 and this fits me fine. The original tag was 7 1/4 but the label behind the sweatband is 7 1/8.
    • Crown: 5” front, 4 1/4” back
    • Brim 2 3/4”
    • Ribbon: 1 1/2” forrest green with a tan accent
    Price: $240 shipped CONUS
