RESERVED ON LAYAWAY Incredible Custom Made 1940s Huge Wide Brim Summer Beach Sun Hat by Josephine Tripoli


  • Product Description

      Before I jump into describing this rare beauty, a word about shipping. This piece is exceptionally outsized - I had somehow decided it was 24" wide, but it is actually 31" wide, and a 32x32x8" box is too large to ship overseas, and very costly to ship within the states. The only way I will be able to ship this item internationally is to roll the brim inward, and it will still be a costly investment. If you are in the US, the shipping rate varies and I will refund if I am able to ship for less. If you are outside the US and order this, you accept that the hat will be rolled and the edges of the brim may need reshaping. 

      Vintage 1940s sunhat is hands down the biggest and best and rarest I have EVER had. Incredible fashion, of a This stunning, extra extra wide summer hat was MADE for the beach - a fashion we see in historic photos and occasionally editorial images, but really, never in person. The straw is adeptly braided - two different textures and three different weaves. The open, lace like effect lets light play on your face. The interior is lined with grosgrain

      As noted, the exceptional size of this piece will cause it to be very costly to ship overseas or areas on the east coast. I have adjusted my original price on it to help accommodate the expense.
