Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
An impossibly modern and chic 1940s straw hat featuring a wide, velvet-lined brim, adorable top button with red trim, black netting sash and velvet ribbon. No closures or combs.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →interior ribbon: 19 inches around →width: 10 inches →length: 11 inches
CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition with a few tiny imperfections/breaks in the straw only visible under close inspection. There's a stampede style elastic strap meant to go under the wearer's chin, but it's very worn and has lost elasticity; I did not think this is something most modern wearers would utilize, anyhow! It could easily be removed. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Straw with black velvet and red accents
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents label. Appears to be made of a fine, sturdy straw with nylon netting and rayon velvet accents.
PLEASE NOTE: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing! Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear. Take a look at our store policies for more information.
