There is a "National" Hat for Everyone - of Every Age

From the smart up-curving brim for the vivacious girl to the brim of pensive droop for the retiring disposition, there is a "NATIONAL" Hat not only of extreme becomingness for all - but one serving to give expression to the very charm of personality.

And there is the delight of true style rests.  And there the need for choosing a hat where ALL of Fashion's best models are displayed.  And in these pages there is Fashion's full assortment -- all authoritative New York Styles -- all "NATIONAL" Styles.

To Mention a few:   the new embroidered conceits, the stylish soft effects, sailors with newness in the turn and roll or the brim, and the becoming "off-the-face" shapes that curve back from the face.

The materials are many -- and the best of the new ones are shown here.  Milan Hemp, Lisere Straws, Satin and Glossy Braids, and the very fashionable Batavia Cloth --  a light weight fabric woven from hemp.

AND VALUES.  Style costs little -- nothing, almost, in a "NATIONAL" Hat.  A high-priced designer creating for the individual must add dollars for her time to the cost of each hat.  In buying a "NATIONAL" Hat the expense of the best designers can hardly be figured, so many designs do we create, so many do our customers number.

Therefore, a "NATIONAL" Hat brings you the best in style, the most expensive designs, but the price is figured on material cost and workmanship alone.
