McConnell became the top hat designer in the mid-20th century, making hats for the most well-known stars. His designs were modeled by actress Joan Crawford and model Wilhelmina. The hats were even shown at the finest couture fashion shows all over the United States.
Jack McConnell was a hat designer of note. His frivolous feathered creations are highly collectible today. If a Jack McConnell hat bears the label "Styled by Jack McConnell New York" it is a one of a kind McConnell original, designed by Jack McConnell. A red feather would have been pinned under these labels - if the red feather is still intact, this will positively influence the hat's value.
The "Jack McConnell Boutique" label means that the hat in question was designed by McConnell or a member of his team. These hats were made in varying numbers and many are considered quite rare despite not being one offs.
