Finally some pictures of my Dunlap Supreme silk finish.
At Buler's request...
Late '20s to mid-'30s Dunlap. I found two at once - one with a dark brown brim, the other with dark grey, both in pristine condition.
The felt goes up about 1/2 inch on the inside, but appears to be sewn to the straw right at the brim junction.
Has the shape of a late '30s/'40s felt hat, but also like any straw fedora from that period or earlier.
Dating was based on this type of reeded sweatband, taped sweat, the frayed bow (but as odd as this hat is, they might have brought this back as part of the odd design). There's also something very odd about the olive-green bow that I can't put my finger on. I haven't researched the store yet, but it's local to Seattle.
Beautiful Hat, looks Great. The brim gives a wonderful contrast.
Its been a while since my last ebay hat ad "purge", but I decided to go through again and try to find all the ads that havent been seen yet. I'm SURE there are going to be duplicates of some, but some I have never seen before.
Interesting specimens ... :yo:
Great Josh, thanks.
This is the most extraordinary, wonderful fedora I've seen in years. May I ask what hat size it is, Scott?
Here's my "new" Dunlap Superior
