Hat Frenzy

Dramatic black felt toque hat with grey feathers and jersey drape, labeled Made in Los Angeles, paired with a blue wool suit from The Suit Salon at Marshall Fields, Chicago, Circa 1940's.

It's time to fall in love with hats all over again!  Take a trip across the country to find that perfect new hat.  We begin our journey in New York City for a glimpse at two famous hat spots.
