|For sale is a mens suede leather cowboy hat. There is a sticker inside the top of the hat, which says: San Zeno Leather Handmade Hats California. The sticker is partially peeling off of the hat. The inside of the hat is stamped Plainsmen large. Plainsmen is probably the style of the hat.
I wasn’t able to find any information on San Zeno Leather, but this hat looks to be well made, although it has been worn and does have wear to it. This hat is made out of a suede leather, not a smooth leather. The hat is a darker color than it appears in the photographs. It is a medium to dark brown color. I notice the area around the braid looks a little dirty in some of the listing photos, but I don’t see any dirt on it at all, so that must be a shadow. The outside suede of the hat is in excellent condition, with no marks on it.
The hat has a braided leather strap around it. There are feathers on one side of the hat. The feathers look like they might be a little loose, and in fact, one came off of the group of feathers, before the photo was taken. The group of feathers could be replaced, I would think.
The hat has clearly been worn, as there are some dark marks at the front inside forehead area of the hat. This can be seen in the last listing photo. I don’t know if there is away to clean suede leather hats or not. There are some marks inside the hat. There are some light scrapes in the leather. There is a darkish area on the underside of the brim, although that looks like it could have been in the leather to begin with. There is a mark that looks like a pen mark on the underside of the brim.
This is still a nice hat, though, and it’s possible that it could be cleaned. The hat was handmade so I would guess that the quality of it is excellent. It does seem to be very sturdy and well made.
