Carl Blum extra velour in black. Size 56 with the raw edge brim at 6cm and the crown at 11cm at the center dent. Thick and heavy velour with a great hand to it and shapes with ease. An oddity is that the nap of the velour on the crown is brushed clockwise. Made for the Italian market as the label is in part in Italian. @PanosChris : it's sort of a pre-war Italian velour :)

The label gives 9/30 under the "data", which means it's from 1930 I suppose. There was a hatter called Anton Blum in Salzburg, Austria. Carl could well be related.

Stefan super! I was waiting for that one, I thought it to be a JHS (maybe the other brown Dunn&Co is?), but doesn't disappoint at all. Love the thicker, heavier, glossier velours but you know that already ;) A winner!

Thank you, Panos. I was curious about this one and more or less, like you, expected it to be a Hückel. It isn't, but it's none the worse for it. I'll post the Dunn in a moment.

GA Dunn&Co Ltd velour hat in brown. Size 56 with the raw edge brim at 6 and the crown at 10 cm at the center dent. A more short haired velour in a nice rich brown colour. Lovely hand to the felt and it shapes easily. No labels under the sweat, so no idea who the manufacturer was. Weighs 126 grams.
