This hat is inspired by Hollywood’s Rebel Without a Cause star, James Dean, a cultural icon who inspired raw masculinity and continues to be the epitome of cool. It is made of the finest wool that has been scoured and dyed from its first shearing. The braided trim of Mr. Dean hat is made of 100% cruelty free horse hair that has been hand trimmed from the horse’s tail and mane through grooming. Each trim has undergone an elaborate process of hand braiding, and polishing of the hair by artisans. An overall work of art.
