MARK/LABEL: Styled by Jack McConnell

*Jack McConnell is considered "one of the most creative milliners of the twentieth century." Mentioned and/or advertised in fashion magazines in the 1950s and 1960s. Hugely popular in the late 1960s, Jack McConnell red feather label hats were one of a kind hats designed by Jack McConnell himself. A bridge label, Jack McConnell Boutique, was for mass-produced hats designed by Jack or his assistants. According to the trademark application, the Jack McConnell Boutique label was first used in 1971.
Labels: "Styled by Jack McConnell" (red feather label one-of-a-kind hats), Jack McConnell Boutique (1971-present), Jack McConnell Flair (moderately priced line introduced in
1968, aimed at youth market), Jack McConnell Its For the Birds (rarely seen early label). Some hats owned by an avid Jack McConnell collector who had hats custom made by Jack bore labels that said only "Jack McConnell." These could be custom made hats, or possibly just his one-of-a-kind line before he devised the Styled by Jack McConnell label.

 

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HAT SIZE:

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