The slouch (Garbo, sportster, or ladies’ fedora) hat became popular in the 1930s and remained so through the 1940s. It is similar to a man’s fedora, but with a shallow, indented crown and a more-flexible brim. Slouch hats were a casual, daytime style worn with coats or suits, and typically tilted to the side of the head in a sporty fashion.
They were typically made of wool felt but some summer straws have been seen.
