Vintage Men's Hats

Whatever happened to the days where not only women wore hats, but men wore them as well?  I feel like I have missed something important by not living through this period.  Is it possible to long for "the good old days" if you didn't even live through those good old days?

I found these hats several years ago at an estate auction (where most of my finds come from).  The auctioneer couldn't get a bid on them.  The top photo shows a Churchill hat with it's original box.  I really like the feather band around this hat.  The middle picture is a Champ Hats box, which holds the hat in the bottom photo, which is from Saxson.  I didn't take a picture of them together since they really aren't a set.  I really don't know anything else about them.

Have a great Friday!

  1. It's funny that vintage hats are such bad sellers at estate sales and auctions, but that's good for those of us who like them and collect them. I particularly love the little hats that are almost like headbands with netting and rhinestones. And of course black velvet pillboxes. Love your men's chapeaux.
