    Echt Velour "Quality Velour Seal", 57cm, probably mid to late 1930s. Not sure what company made it but it came with another Velour from Friedrich Steinberg Hermann & Co. (STECO) Hat Factory Luckenwalde (East Germany) so they might be the source.

    R. Hecht Leipzig - Theater Passage - Grimmaishe Str. 12, Wool, 58cm, 160 grams probably 1930s. My guess is this hat was made by one of the large scale German Hat Companies that were located in Eastern Germany that produced both Wool and Fur Felt hats but didn't survive WWII.

    Ottmar Reich probably mid to late 1930 to early 1940s. I think the straw type is probably Asia sourced (possibly Japanese Paper Panama) but bleached in Germany.

    Carl Jacob Halle a/S., measures 57cm, probably WWI era maybe later. No company mark but probably made by one of the hat companies in Guben or Luckenwalde.

    1900s/1910s Wicks & Greenman

    1900s Wicks & Greenman upbrim fedora/lords hat

    The ribbon has the "frayed bow" which was common on hats of the era.

    The sweatband has a similar texture to the earlier Stetson "Fray" sweatbands, which seem to have a crazy amount of life to them.

    A little info on W&G: "January, 1904, Wicks entered the retail clothing business. For this purpose he formed a partnership with George H. Greenman, of Johnstown, New York, and they continued successfully in that business for five years under the firm name of Wicks & Greenman, and at the end of that period sold out to The Talbot Company of Boston"[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
