Fodor's Review

Her shop was the famous purveyor of hats to Willie Brown, San Francisco's nattily dressed former mayor, but Ruth Garland Dewson had been selling chapeaus—some of her own design—well before he took office. The popular "Willie Brim" is a fur felt fedora; the brim comes in three sizes.
