    Circa 1900 Stetson pin. Earlier than this thread, BUT may have gone out on Stetson Hats through the 20's depending on how much stock they had.....

    A little later than this tread but is a very interesting statement of the trends in hatting leading into the mid-60's through the early 70's. This image was run in 1964 and again in 1970 to illustrate the short brim trends for "wear in the city".:eek::rolleyes:

    They weren't kidding, either. Those old phones could take a nuclear blast.

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

    Welcome to the lounge,
    THIS thread is NOT for hats but for other items like ads and ephemera you actually OWN.
    It looks like you own the titled hat, that is cool.....but it belongs in another thread.....

    I don’t get that either. Looks like the chauffeur is being chauffeured.

    Pardon the glare of the plastic, I didn't want to take this ad out of the protective sleeve at work. But the very cool 1928 French ad came today. It is indeed dated 1928 at the top and is apparently a page from L'Illustration, a Parisian newspaper which ran from 1843-1944.

    Now I need a frame!
