    And if not, what <i>would</i> you call it? :)

    Also, I'm not sure how to describe what it's made of - is this just a very plush fur felt?

    Here are the labels, for whatever they're worth ~

    Looks like fur felt to me. Guess the fedora is the best word to use. Its pretty I would be sure to use the word feathers in the title.

    One of my books shows a style something like it as a padre Maybe you could try looking that word up to see if it matches.

    Hmmm muskateer hat great with puss n boots ;)

    LOL - thanks Pauline. And I'll check out 'padre' (as in the Spanish word for Father?). The feathers are Pheasant and since the hat was made in Austria I might go with a dressy Tyrolean angle... I'm always a little unsure when I list hats because I know so little about them!
