    This is a thread dedicated to Gordon Hats. They are a pretty rare brand and every time one pops up, they seem to be very interesting. I have scoured the lounge for everything GORDON related. Here's all that I have found. If you have a Gordon hat, hat box, ad, info, etc, please post it here.

    Dinerman's Gordon's

    Thanks for collecting the info for this thread.

    They are also the makers of the Field & Stream jackets and other sportswear.

    That's a FANTASTIC pin. I think it would be great pinned on the ribbon of a Gordon Hat. ;)
