I had it restored by Optimo and I think they did a great job. They replaced the non reeded sweat and ribbon/bow. Also the liner was missing so I had them put in a new one. The felt was in very good condition.
Original sweatband and ribbon/bow.

This beauty belongs to RLK on the FL.
This hat can be dated between 1951-57 since Stanley W. Unger left the Palmer House Hotel at the end of 1950 to move to the Bismarck Hotel Lobby as well as in the Chicago Board of Trade Building. The Bismarck Hotel Store had a "Going Out of Business Sale" Jan.-Mar. of 1958. He retired a few years later and had an additional store in Evanston less than a mile from where I now live. The wide double-thickness brim edge has no stitching so is either felted or a glued overwelt and its 1-7/8" wide. The crown dips to 4-1/4" at the front and rises to 5". The sweatband has the accordion-pleated front ventilation. Super-soft plush felt. In great condition except for a case of "ring around the collar".
