"Who dares, wins," they say, so why not take your style to new heights this fall with our breathtaking vintage Evelyn Varon chapeau? Of cinnamon-colored "doeskin" wool felt, it's gracefully shaped in a sort of cross between a fedora, a cloche and a Garbo slouch. A lavish wheel of feathers accented by pearls adorns the longer side -- the better for casting flirtatious glances beneath. Vintage hats just don't get any more spectacular!

This one's in immaculate condition, too, although it can't be younger than mid-1960s. That's when the original owner remembers purchasing it from an upscale department store in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Unfortunately for her, she didn't dare to wear it much, which is why it's so perfect now. It's marked with two of the most famous names in vintage headwear: Evelyn Varon, whose work is featured in the Hat Museum, and George W. Bollman, whose firm developed the wool felt "doeskin" material from which it's made. The Bollman Hat Co. has been associated with many the world's top designers and brands since early Victorian days and the firm is still operating.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
