Janis Joplin Stage Owned & Worn Custom Brown Bohemian Suede Hat.

There's cool, and then there's Janis Joplin's owned and worn custom brown suede floppy hat. Janis loved her hats, and you can see how she must have treasured this one with it's suede "stitching" around the top, and the suede weave with ties hanging on the back. Janis Joplin's quintessential 60's bohemian look!

The hat comes from the collection of renowned booking agent and promotional agent Irwin Pate, During his very long career, Irwin and his wife Clarine obtained a large collection of personal clothing and articles belonging to numerous entertainers. When traveling on concert tours Irwin often would obtain many of these articles from both tour crew members and venue staff, and some items he obtained directly from the celebrity. Among the vast number of entertainers that he came in contact with, worked with, and knew was Janis Joplin. Irwin worked with Janis on several occasions, and during one of their meetings Irwin told Janis about his collection. Janis then gifted Irwin some personal items, including this brown suede hat.

Size: Custom made, hat size is small.

Condition: Very good vintage condition.

Authentication: Letter from Irwin Pate's widow, Clarine Pate, on their company letterhead and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
