Antique Wide-Brimmed Preacher’s Derby Bowler Hat Vented Small 6-3/8 Size Youth?
I am pleased to offer this Antique Wide-brimmed Preacher’s Style Derby Hat!
This hat has a vented crown and a flatter, wider brim giving it that very sacerdotal appearance.
That has is vented on the top, and features a leather lining on the inside rim marked “Latest Cushion Fitting”.
The hat is roughly a size 6-3/8, which by todays standard would be youth sized.
However 100+ years ago people on average were smaller, and this could’ve been an adult hat. Or it could have been a preacher’s son’s hat!
It was very typical that a man’s son(s) would shadow him as an assistant in his occupation.
