    Seriously? A Soviet wolf-fur ushanka? At a garage sale? When were those things in style?

    UD, as in University of Dayton? But they are Marianists, not Jesuits.

    It’s got a certain amount of style. Not much, just a certain amount.

    Marist, I went to one of their high schools in Tx. CCHS, Central Catholic Buttons. Founded by a French priest, had missions in Asia and schools in the US.

    Love the hat! Might be a little off season, though.

    Ushankas are sort of fashionable. Not much different from a trapper hat.

    @Wolf Emperor

    Ushanka IS a trapper hat. It’s also called a trooper hat or a Russian hat.

    I’ve never seen anything like that at a rummage sale.

    It might be more a matter of where than when. In the early seventies, karakul hats were so popular in
    Chicago that Mike Royko made some remark along the lines that during rush hour it looked as if Northwestern Station had just hosted a Politburo meeting. But I don’t think they were anywhere near as popular elsewhere, even in places where they would have been equally practical.

    U Dayton is Marianist, which isn’t the same as Marist. Close, actually VERY close, but not quite the same.

    Should you actually be curious, check out this page from UD: http://campus.udayton.edu/mary/questions/yq/yq110.html
