Title Black Felt Brimmed Hat

Description Black felt hat with deep brown hue and large brim. Brim has a second layer on the inner portion which creates a raised rim around the middle of the brim. The crown of the hat is shallow and flattened down and there are sections where the felt is either dicolored or worn away. There is also a tear in the crown where stitching is visible. The inside of the hat is damaged, the fabric is frayed and the tougher material that gave the hat its shape is exposed.
