Hey guys,
In the interest of continuing to disperse my hat collection, I'm posting here my Lee White Label Velour in 7 1/4 with the original box.
Honestly, I had high hopes for this hat when I bought it but, it just doesn't look right with my face shape so, I've only worn it once or twice the entire time I've had it.
The deep chocolate brown felt is VERY malleable, and, being a velour, has a somewhat velvet like finish. The wide brim has a guild edge, and there are no moth bites anywhere, what so ever, on this hat.
As shown in the photos below, the inner side of the box lid has a short guide with instructions on how to care for the hat.
The box is covered in a velvet type material and is near perfect condition as well, with the exception of a small piece of the lid that got torn at some point that I can't remember. I had the forethought to save this, and glued it back in place; it's really not too noticeable unless you're looking for it.
The box also has a leather strap with brass buckle that fastens the lid in place when transporting it from one place to another.
I did some research and found that the White Label designation was their $15 price point, with Gold being the highest at $20.
See here for more details: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/lee-black-white-red-label-what-did-it-mean.58555/

And on to the specs!

Brim 2 3/4in
Crown 5in
Ribbon 1in
Sweatband 2in, is a very thin leather but, is extremely supple, showing little signs of wear.

Asking $200 obo
Am willing to entertain any reasonable offers.

Cheers guys
