    I picked this up at an antique store for $16 recently. I'm not familiar with the brand. Can anyone tell me anything about this hat?

    Very nice Champ Milan. Looks pristine. The black narrow sweat tends toward an early 1960s hat. The brim binding is a nice touch. Great hat with nice shape for summer, great catch. And welcome to the Lounge!

    Thank you. I did not spend enough time searching first.

    I'd echo the 60's estimate. The style is typical of milan straws of that era, I think
