High-quality bush or safari hat from the late 1960s or early 70s captures the popular trend that's back in style. Substantial hat has one snap-up side, diagonal grommet detail on three-part crown, and allover parallel topstitching. Luxuriously lined in quilted satin. This Aussie-style hat is extremely well made, to Dobbs' highest standards, and was likely produced for only a short time. From the living estate of Mae M., who purchased it new in New York City.
