I'll Lock Up
Hi Riby. Welcome to the lounge. Congratulations on your first fur felt. If you spend much time around here it likely won’t be your lastHi!
I’m new to these forums, so forgive me if I’m breaking some protocol by asking this question in this thread.
I recently got into fedoras and bought a wool felt one from a local producer. I quickly learnt that a fur felt one would be a better choice and started browsing flea markets. Luckily I found one in my size from Finlands equivalent to Ebay for 25€! Now that I’ve received the hat it seems to be just what I wanted, but there’s no branding on it. Could you help me indentify the hat?
It seems to be rather new, since the tags inside seem modern. The seller told me that it’s from Germany. The only information that I could pull from the hat are the model number 643A and the text ”100% haar 60”. I presume 60 means size and 100% haar means it’s 100% rabbit fur felt? At least it was easier to steam to shape than the wool one.
I’ll attach here a picture of the emblem inside the hat.
Thank you for your help in advance!
As to this branding… not anything I am familiar with. A lot of the modern European hats are produced by Tonak. Maybe some of our European friends could weigh in. @Steve1857 @steur @Pellie @Daniele Tanto
