Knox Tuxaway Hat, Part II

I posted about this travel hat that I found back in February, the Knox Tuxaway.  At the time I found an ad for a man’s Tuxaway, but mine was clearly for a woman with the bright red color and the sizing.  I’ve not found any additional information about the hat, but I was pleased when a reader, Carol, emailed to say that she is a collector of hatboxes, and that she has a Tuxaway box.

I love this because you can see the cylinder hat box in the 1948 Knox Tuxaway ad.  So if any of you happen to run across this oddly shaped box, you will now know what its use was.

Thanks to Carol for sharing her photo.

  3. That ladies’ hat is adorable.
    Johnson Woolen Mill in New Hampshire makes a wool crusher similar to the men’s fedora style. http://johnsonwoolenmills.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=104

  5. The ladies hat is just as “they” say “to die for!!!” I love that it’s a blue based red (at least that’s what it looks like on my screen) well, maybe it’s kind of both as the brim looks as if it’s slightly orange red?!?! and the style is SO classic!! Makes me want to go to pairs and wear my large round black Chanel sunglasses w/a trench-coat and pretend I’m someone important (wait, I am important already ;) I can pretend I’m famously important!! Thank you Lizzie for sharing!!!
