Battersby fedora
Another great big-brimmed hat, this time from the old and venerated London firm of Battersby. Knud, a well-known Copenhagen lawyer wore this for several years and then gave it to Rita, the wife of another lawyer. Rita, in turn, passed it on to me. By the way, Rita is a great hat person—one of the few left who really appreciates the value of a broad brim and can wear one with style.
