    Hello!
    What do You think about this hat? Is it commercial or not? The lining is made from silk like fabric. The rim is stiffened with cork and newspapers...
    Any guess what is it? All opinions are welcome cat

    Owen is the man for this job, it looks hand made to me with the state of the stitching. It looks too poor at the side of the more modern repo items sold as real.

    Dont worry its 100% real Vietnam wartime Cowboy hat.
    Thai made usually sold to USAF personal to wear on the flight line to be cool.

    This is a screen printed fabric and will fade of left in the sun for any amount of time.

    Great hat in mint condition.
