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 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 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: The shop where it was sold It was used, but for the its age in a perfect shape, no moths, no flaws. Asking price is $ 100 for overseas or € 90 Europe Ask for the cost of shipping, it varies according to destination Hats of this quality and made with this velour are no longer found!
