A very Vintage 1950’s (I believe) custom made by SWIFT, Ltd of San Francisco gray felt Fedora with a DOBBS FIFTH AVENUE NY hat box. This hat & box belonged to my great uncle. The inner leather band is embossed in gold with his initials E.C.J. There is a size tag that reads…. 7 3-8 Custom made. The crown is lined in satin & is obviously a very expensive hat. It’s in great condition considering it’s age. It’s been stored away from light in this Dobbs hat box for decades.
I’ve included a photo of my dear Great Uncle along with his shop card for provenance.
