M.W. Diamant

Size 54cm, NOS with the original size tag. My guess is late 1950s. I haven't been able to find any information on M.W.. The paper tag behind the sweatband has M.B.W. .

This ad was posted by Flat Foot Floey on the FL. This solved the M.W. mystery. Thanks!

Max Wiese Berlin (M.W.B.) "Halali Special", measures 58cm probably late 1930s early 1940s, modified probably 1970s or later. The crown of this hat was cut down and the band was changed to a felt type. The over welt was also added and probably the hat was reformed to further reduce brim width (modified dimensions Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 1/4 inches. The modification work is really well done (saved original sweatband, tip patch (could be cut from liner) and paper label) but I am sure the original hat was amazing. The felt on this hat is really fantastic and easily dry creases (see photos).

You can see that the sweatband was reattached after modification.

You can see the where the crown was cut (just below stitching).

Here is advertisement for a Max Wiese Berlin "Halali Hut". I think this one is later but it's probably close to what this hat originally looked like. What is interesting is Halali is associated with hunting but these hats are Dress Hats.

They were made by other companies and go back to the early 1900s or further.

Today I can only find an association with hunting.

M.W.B. Stolzf. Luxury Velour, Stone Gray, measures 58cm, 2 3/8 inch brim, 5 1/2 inch open crown, very good condition, probably 1930s. I have been looking for one of these shiny gray Velours in my size for a long time. The Velour is really fantastic on this one! I am not familiar with the company initials but I was able to find information on the Berlin store (Leineweber) it was made for.

The building (Derfflingerpalais) was destroyed in 1944 and demolished in 1959.

Das Derfflinger-Haus am Köllnischen Fischmarkt machte der Große Kurfürst seinern erfolgreichen Feldherren zum Geschenk. Das 1567 erbaute zweistöckige Haus baute Nering dem Generalfeldmarschall zu einem dreistöckigen Palais um, das vor der Jahrhundertwende das Bekleidungshaus Leineweber übernahm, Das Haus wurde 1944 zerstört und 1959 abgetragen.
