Dobbs is a name synonymous with impeccable quality and classic styling.  They are legendary for their straw and felt hats for both men and women.  This illustration from the January 1940 issue of Vogue shows two Dobbs hats for Spring 1940.  A grey felt banded with red grosgrain on the left, and a cocoanut straw imported from Nassau on the right.  Illustration by Rene Bouet-Willaumez (1900-1979).
