This classic black 1960s pillbox hat with veil is made of nice quality wool felt, with shiny patent trim on the large grosgrain bow adorning the center back. The black veil comes down only to about eyebrow height, so it will not cover the entire face—or get in the way of eating or drinking! An “offshoot” of the grosgrain bow forms an arrow across the center of the rounded crown, to hold the veiling in place. The hat was designed to be worn at the back of the head, as shown (just like Jackie Kennedy wore her pillbox hats). However, if you prefer your hats worn tilted forward, don’t let us stop you! In excellent condition, this black pillbox 1960s hat with veil will be a versatile addition to your vintage hat collection.
