is the best quality hat in my collection. This very snappy looking hat is a Vintage "Champ" brand Fedora in size 7-7/8.
This Mid-Century Kasmir Finish Fur Felted Hat has a bright Feather tucked into a 2 inch wide grosgrain ribbon hatband. It has a "wind trolley" string and button too. This nicely preserved rich dark brown hat sports a Center dent crown (about 4 inches tall) with a pinched front. The brim is 1-7/8 inches wide with a stitched over-welt. The oval opening is 6-1/2 inches by 8 inches. The sweatband is embossed in a pore-like pattern and sewn together at back with a = stitch. "CHAMP Feel the Felt" is printed in gold on one side of the headband with "FELTED BY Master Craftsmen" on the other side and "Kasmir Finish" on the back. The sweatband has worn spots on both sides with the word "Champ" worn completely through on 3 letters. Rectangular size tag has black ink on gold paper with the Hatters Union stamp on back. The liner is cream color and silky with a plastic center protector over the Champ logo and name. Under the sweatband there is a slip of paper glued in place with "Reg C 82379 to Duplicate and 451 Block" printed on it.
