Label: Sonni San Francisco
This chic black felt 80s hat by California hat maker Sonni is imitating the style of a late 1930s to 1940s tilt hat—and doing a nice job of it! The very shallow, almost flat, round crown is designed to sit forward n the head, as shown, with the downturned front brim and black veiling creating a film-noir-femme-fatale air of mystery. The hat brim is turned up in the back, and trimmed with a large, multi-loop grosgrain bow that matches the narrow band encircling the hat’s crown. Although it dates from the 1980s, this hat is of nice quality, nearly similar to 1930s and 40s hats of the same style, but made of slightly lighter-weight black wool felt than was used in earlier eras. It is in excellent condition, with just the tiniest bit of fraying visible to the ends of the grosgrain ribbon bow.
