    When did slouch hats get grosgrain trim to the brim? Vintage WWI -II don't have that do they? Thanks.

    I reckon in the 70's....again it just gives the RSM a reason to tell you to get a new one once that starts to fray

    The trimmed brim goes waay back. They dropped it during WWII as a war economy measure and resumed after the war. Beware of fakes that have had the brim material sliced off to look like war economy hats.

    Oz.

    Hats fine for the forum IMO. Nice Akubra.
