This label was for one of a kind, custom hats designed by Olive.

*Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1929, Frank Olive studied at the Chicago Art Institute, where he started designing costumes. He moved to New York originally hoping to design for the theater. He worked for a while at Chanda and Emme before opening his first boutique Greenwich Village, where he designed hats for Seventh Avenue fashion houses and leading department stores. In 1971 he partnered with David Stein to establish Frank Olive's World. He was one of the foremost U.S. milliners from the 50s through 90s. His customers included Carol Burnett, Diana Ross and Peggy Lee. He died in New York in 1995 at age 66.



HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HAT SIZE:

  1. Pull a fabric tape measure or length of string around your head just slightly above the ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly.
  2. You are measuring your head exactly where the hat will sit.
  3. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
