    An historical hat from France

    J&B was the French producer of this hat in black velour. The hatter, was, based on my experience, the best in France in those years

    From a comparison with J&B hats I have in my collection made before the WWII this was made in the twenty
    [​IMG]
    The proportions are as follows: raw brim to 6,5 cm. open crown at 13 and the ribbon is 5 cm.

    I haven’t the experince of Steve about velour, neither I can’t decipher who made it, but this is fantastic. Soft and pliable, very dense and rich
    [​IMG]
    The inside is without patch or lining, there was somenthing I’m sure, but not today.
    Under the sweatband there are two paper labels: the above and the size tag 4 1/2 or 56 cm.
    The golden and embossed stamps on the sweatband are there:

    It was used, but for the its age in a perfect shape, no moths, no flaws.
