Vintage Mr John Classic Hat, Pink and Black Velvet Animal Print with Bow

Bitchin Retro


Striking vintage statement hat from Mr. John Classic of New York and Paris. This certainly does have a Parisienne feel with it's oversized beret styling, though the inside label indicates it was Union Made in the USA. The pale pink background has a satiny feel and sheen, while the black animal print has a crushed velvet texture. Orange and pink abstract lining is the frosting on the cake. A unique hat that looks like it is straight from a vintage runway. 

There is no sizing label. The inside of the band measures 21 1/4".

Bitchin Retro Notes: This hat is in excellent vintage condition. **Please note (2) photos with closeups of fabric details we wanted to bring to your attention. One is a small pin dot "hole" where we believe the bow was originally tacked to the hat. The second is a 3/8" area of slight wear on the bottom of the band. Please see condition descriptions below.

Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos.
