Mayer Hut – Velour

The German and Austrian hatmakers were masters of velour felt. This stuff is beautiful to the touch and has a mohair-like sheen to the hat. It was sold from the store: Mayer-Hut, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and made by Oberbayerische Hutfabrik GmbH. Miesbach

It’s remarkably rare to find hats with unequivocal date markings, and it’s on these that we can base our predictions of dates for those hats where there is no solid date info.
