Crown Height

A hat originally designed for my dear friend Tony Vaughn who was inspired by Malcolm McLaren. Myself, I got inspired by famed Montana western artist, Charles M. Russell and the essence of what Tony wanted: Funky, Fresh, and Fly!  

The Inspo.

The result. 

Tony wanted a hat that he could shape du jour, meaning, he could shape the crown however he felt that day. The crown could be pinched, punched, popped, or whatever would go with that day's look and vibe. 

Being that Tony is officially titled an Ambassador of Luxury, I knew we wanted to go ultra-lux in the materials. 

What would work for his commute, his style, warmth, versatility, durability, and wearability? #enduringandbecomingsomehow

I chose a suede finish fur felt - it's the ultimate lux

Feels like velvet but can handle getting caught in the elements of Fall, Winter, and Spring. Soft yet shapeable with an effortlessly chic style. Just right! 

I am offering The Vaughn in two crown heights because some of us want the height (gives you more play options) but others prefer the relaxed look of a lower crown (you can still pinch or pop). 

The color choices are Charcoal (as seen in the pics) or Black.

This hat is custom couture, made to your size and specifications, by me, Katherine. 

No trim, just pure shape, and style!
