The flamboyance and fast times of the 1920's gave way to a somber climate in the 1930's, ushered in by the Stock Market Crash of 1929. A national crisis of unseen magnitude, the Great Depression instilled great character and fortitude in the American public. Amid difficult circumstances, fashion likewise evolved, with a more modestly-styled look befitting the national mood. The Bollman Hat Company produced The Trilby, toning down the wide brim and softening the sharp lines of the Fedora. The Trilby became the all purpose dress felt hat, cutting across class strata in America and Europe. To meet the demand, Bollman began carbonizing and scouring the wool used in felt hats during this decade. This hat comes in a special edition Bollman Heritage Hat Box.
