30's air light in a beaver color
Great!... is the ribbon brown or black?
Love that Mayer-Krom imprint. I've got one around somewhere.
It is brown, lot number on this one is not legible
A grail hat Vic, I'm drooling on my keyboard
my heart Vic ... my heart !!!
Sent directly from my mind to yours.
Fabulous find! What's the brim on that one, 6+ inches? Brim width?
??? You been celebrating National Tequila Day??
the crown is around 5 1/2" and the brim is 2 1/4"
Is that 5-1/2" as creased, or open crown? In any event, it sure is a gorgeous lid and makes a proud statement. Drool factor of at least 110 on a 100 point scale.
Open crown... it is marked on the manufacturing tag.
Yesterdays best remark.
I notice this does have the decorative brim stitch
I was discussing the possible timeline of when this was added recently with @alanfgag
I guess this hat tosses our theories out the window.
I have an early 40s model without it and a 50s model with it.... now to see a 30s model with it...
Did it go away then return ?
Can you shed any light on this Vic?
I stayed out of that conversation because I was not sure and did not want to take sides. But now that you asked.....I believe the stitch went away in the war years because it was decorative and served no real purpose. I have a Playboy without the stitching that I can show tomorrow. Just my two cent, I don't have to be right about this.....
@Redfokker would like to know this, too, as he just had a Playboy clone made in his "Slats" historical hat for an Oregon State celeb. Very interesting information.
Good eyes, I didn't notice. It could have come and gone or it could have come in different styles at the same time. It's hard to know the entire dinosaur without all the bones but it sure is nice to have a new one to add to the puzzle.
