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.
