Some of the softest felt around though I know nothing about the hat or the brand. Any ideas as to age?

My first and (so far) only Barbisio. It's currently my #1 favorite hat. I lightened the photos a bit to show the detail - it's actually midnight blue.

When looking for Barbisio's , you need to make sure which one you are getting especially if they are modern made. There are two companies that have the license today. one is in Biella Italy, the other in Columbia SA. The easiest way to tell on the modern ones is on the leather sweatband. The Columbian ones cant print made in Ialy . Their quality is very good but they dont have the finese of the Cervo made ones.

I purchased this hat in 1996 in Burbank at a hatter on Burbank Blvd. The owner/keeper said the hat was old-old stock, and it was my first real hat. The color did nothing for me and I packed it way until last year. When I found it, I realized it was quite good and fits my suits and face these days.

I'll take a stab--it was made in the early 80's before Barbisio closed or was sold off. It's a very good hat, and I'm extremely happy with it.

Hi Max,
Your Barbisio was made in Columbia SA . The easiest way to tell the difference between the Italian and the south American hats is on the leather. The hats made in Columbia do not say "Made in Italy" . Not that they arent good hats, the quality on them is quite good. We sell them still in our stores .

Hi Bolthead,
Your hat was made in the USA by Bollman about 20 years ago . They had the license to make Barbisio hats here for a while.

Okay, I've inherited Rick's Barbisio (photo above); it's really lovely. The felt is certainly as nice as the Bulgarian Borsalinos. My first thought was that it's a later-period Barbisio from the Sagliano Micca factory; having read this, however, I'm wondering whether it's one of the South American hats.

The liner and sweatband are precisely the same as Max Grody's hat, above: it doesn't say "made in Italy," but below the logo it say "Sagliano - 1862 - Italia." The sweatband doesn't seem to be the same quality as the Italian hats I've owned: the black leather is soft, but the stamp is poorly applied, and the sewing is a notch less refined. Also, the bow in the ribbon is sewn a bit haphazardly.

HOWEVER: inside the sweatband is a paper sticker that looks exactly the same as the ones in the Italian hats. It says "Sagliano Micca Italia," and the color of the hat -- hand-written -- is "tritone." Which is an *Italian* word (meaning triton). The size is given on a fabric tag as 7 1/4, but a paper tag under the sweatband also says 58 and 5 1/2. (I've never seen that last designation on anything but vintage European hats.)

Thoughts?

(I can't find any information about the Colombian factory on the web -- it's never mentioned. Barbisio is said to have *exported* lots of hats to South America, but they've hidden the fact that they make them there.)

I have seen a Colombian website for hats...maybe they make them too?[huh]

I have two Barbisios. This one was refurbished by Graham Thompson (Optimo) to replace the sweatband. Most everyone likes the ribbon treatment, which is original (Graham admitted it was a challenge to get it back together correctly):

On the right in this pic, you can see I changed the bash to more of a C-crown with some rake:
http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb307/barrowjh/062908011.jpg

This second one is a little hat with only a 2 1/4 brim (I think), and I wear it sometimes hiking in the winter or on a hash run. It is fuzzy:

I picked up a similar Barbisio on my latest trip to Germany. My friend is wearing it in this picture.

There is another Barbisio in the picture. It is gray one with the black ribbon. It has a similar ribbon treatment (out of view) to the first Barbisio you posted.

The other hats in the picture from the left gray Taunus Porkpie, black Flechet and brown Flechet (missing a brown Panizza). All the hats are mint (never worn).

such stingy little brims - I wonder if Barbisio saw its heyday towards the end of hats - 50's 60's, as I see so many with the tiny brims and other 'markers' of 50's - 60's.

It was listed as 58. Folded under the sweatband is a size 6-1/2 60 Label. They couldn't read or measure as its a full size 60. Also shipped in a bag not a box so its freshening up on the hat stretcher. I'll post pics shortly. Two sizes bigger than my head. Different sweatband logo.

Traditional Alpine hats also share the same shape and shorter brim and since they were sold in Germany I suspect that is probably not much clue for dating.

Yes there is Alpen feel / look to both hats. The crown on mine is over 5 inches. I found a date of 3/09/61 (09/03/61) on the inner paper label. Does yours have anything that looks like a date?

Where did you buy it? NYC? A friend got me a Barbisio in the factory shop in Biella and it turned out worse than a beater.


They used the defective felt and it still cost EUR60...but even the defective felt was had a luxurious handle.

I got this one a couple of weeks ago, and I'm really liking it.

http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/7424/barbisio2.jpg

Barbisio Classic in what appears to be Natural, un-dyed felt. It is one of the stiffest hats that I have, but still surprisingly mallable (that's a dry bash you're looking at). The color of the natural felt shifts according to the surroundings and lightning, going from a lightish egg-carton dull-gray to almost natural white in sunlight.

The finish is slightly fuzzy and rather coarse - almost as if it hadn't been pounced at all, which I guess would fit with the "semiruvido" on the label behind the sweatband, which google kindly translated as "semi rough".

Hey Brothers,
Newer member here and I just won a Cervo hat on Ebay. I have discovered that these are not too common in the USA...but it seems like there is a link with the Barbisio brand. The hat liner says "S.A.Capellificio Cervo-Sagliano Micca Italia" and the sweat band imprint says "Cervo Sagliano Micca Gran Marca Casa Fondata Nel 188?" So are these two brands linked only in the present day or is there a long standing relationship? Is Cervo considerd a quality manufacturer on par with Barbisio? The hat seems to be very well made and the felt is superb! Here is a link to the item, http://http://cgi.ebay.com/Cervo-Gran-Marca-Hat_W0QQitemZ250581726227QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintag e_Men_s_Women_s_Accessories?hash=item3a57d5b413#ht _500wt_1182 (http://cgi.ebay.com/Cervo-Gran-Marca-Hat_W0QQitemZ250581726227QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintag e_Men_s_Women_s_Accessories?hash=item3a57d5b413#ht _500wt_1182).

I own a Cervo. It has the exact same liner as yours. I bought mine old new stock from Worth & Worth in New York. They don't sell then anymore. All I have to say is that my Cervo is one, if not the nicest, highest quality hat that I own. You can probably email W&W for more details about the brand.

Thanks for the info Aureliano...it looks like Mrs. Dewson's in SF is still in business and selling Cervo hats as well! I thought there was a Barbisio/Cervo link because it looks like the modern Barbisio hats are made at the Cervo factory http://www.barbisio.it/ita/hat_collection.html but maybe other members know more about the history of hat makers in this region of Italy? :eusa_clap

Thanks to a kind tip from a fellow lounger and friend, I was able to acquire this hat, which I picked up from the seller this past Saturday. The seller had "picked" the hat from a local thrift store, one of several he religiously visits on a daily basis, and it came in a beautiful Lee Hats box.

This Italian made Barbisio has felt that is incredibly soft, light, and finely pounced, and yet somehow feels more substantial than my Borsalino Alessandria. Though tagged as 7-3/8 it actually fits perfectly on my 7-1/2 noggin as if custom made!

Originally sold through the Eklund Clothing Co. of Minneapolis, this hat will be staying in Minnesota a while longer...


Crown: 5" at the peak.
Ribbon: 1/2"
Brim: 2-5/8", with 1/8" edge binding.
Sweatband: 2".

Cappelleria Mutinelli and Cappelleria Melegari, both in Milano sell Barbisio. In Roma you can buy them at Cappelleria Troncarelli, where I bought mine last year. Which reminds me that I never posted pictures of it on this thread!

I just got this nice, old Barbisio from ebay. I'm delighted by it's clean, undamaged condition and the hat's felt and style. I'd appreciate thoughts on its age. The taped rear seam make me wonder if it's from the 1940s or before, but it feels almost like a new hat in my hands . . .

rik, I got this exact Super Barbisio Extra Lusso in medium brown for cheap on Ebay. Just $25.00 and its chamois felt is even better than my vintage Borsalino's felt. Here's the link to the auction, no pics of my own yet. http://www.ebay.de/itm/110831033071?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649#ht_1664wt_1398

Do you have any idea how old this hat is? The seller estimated mid-thirties or early forties because of the 2 1/8" wide sweatband with taped seam.

Too bad it smells of cigarettes. Any ideas how to get rid of the smell?

I think mine is 60's-70's. Taped seam means nothing for dating, especially for European hats.

How did I miss Robert's post of this hat just above. :eeek: Oh well, please excuse the echo!

One of two hats that have come to me from RLK, this thin ribbon in "Argento" has a narrow brim (2 1/4") and raw edge that sets a different tone than its U.S. cousins from this era. Funny coincidence, I visited both Lake Como and Bloomington, Illinois (where this hat was sold) in 1972... following the same girlfriend on both occasions.

That's a great looking hat! The tall crown matched with the shorter brim really gives this hat a very 30's look to it. Its not often that we on the lounge get to see a tall crown, thin ribbon with a shorter brim. :eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap

Hard to guess the date on this... I would venture early fifties but perhaps a little earlier. The narrow logo imprinted label is more similar to my Barbisio Titan than to the earlier deadstock Bulgarian Barbisio homburg which is most likely pre-war. I also like the dimensions on this one. I've bought others European hats for this quality, only to discover they have had a trip to the chop shop along the way.

Wouldn't it be nice if all hats contained a dated label?

This was one of two hats (http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?37533-PANIZZA-paparazzi&p=1510311&viewfull=1#post1510311) purchased from the same store in Bologna in the 1950s. Both are of very good quality and intriguing style that utilizes a low (5") crown and narrowish (2 1/4") brim. The felt on this Barbisio is very nice and supports a casual telescope crease to a crown height of 3 1/2". The Barbiso label is unreadable, but shows the script logo and an adjoining dated label. I should have done a better job of de-linting before taking photos. The felt is deep black. The iPhone had a very difficult time reading focus on these shots.

I purchased hats from them a few years ago and still receive a few emails from them a year. They were not good about answering emails years ago. The "vintage" Barbisio hats were 70's-80's with brims 2-1/8" or less and moderate, typical European crowns. Current Barbisios are made by Cervo.

Picked this tan fuzzy or long hair Barbisio up with a lot of beat up hats. Nothing a little cleaning won't take care of. The only thing I did was kick off some of the dust and steamed it back to shape. It has a 2 1/4" brim with thin overwelt edge and a 5 1/2" untapered open crown which is wrapped in a thin 3/4" brown and yellow striped grosgrain ribbon. I had photos in the New Hats thread where another lounger mentioned this thead devoted to Barbisio.

Thanks for posting these here. You will see other examples of this crown liner imprint in this thread, often covered by a paper protector. European hats are wonderful for their quality and range of style and fashion. They employed certain production methods (such as the taped sweatband with V stitching seen here) farther into the post war era than their American cousins, often making them a challenge to date. The production label behind the sweatband is worth documenting. When we have many samples (as we do with Stetsons) it can prove a useful tool in dating.

The original Barbiso closed in the early 1980's . Cervo bought the license from them and has been making the hats using the Barbisio label since. There have been other licensees as well. Bollman made them here in the 1990's and a company in Columbia called Puerto fino makes them still for the religious market in the USA..

A friend who was in Italy on assignment and kindly went all the way to the factory at Biella and bought me a hat from the outlet/seconds store. It was basically rubbish that I gave to Vinnies.

If that is what they were selling to the public I wonder about the quality of the modern Cervo hats.

I just recently picked up this Barbisio which is in really in fantastic shape. It has a 1 1/2" brim with thin overwelt edge and a 5 3/8" soft open crown. I think it was meant for the European market as it is a size 5/57 (7 1/8). I'm not sure how to describe the finish except its in between a smooth finish and a long hair. The hat is stamped "Classic" on the sweatband. I thought I would try it but I don't look good in a stingy brim hat. It's currently for sale in the classifieds if anyone is interested.

Happy New Year to all.

i brought this hat a little over a year ago from a vintage clothing store in Manhattan, and I'm trying to find out the following:

1. What is the official name of the particular style of hat, British Shape, Shovel Back (I know that it's not called a Robin hood) etc...?

2. Approximately what year was it made?

3. I was told that it is one of the better Barbisio's, is it?

All I know is that it is made from mole (Talpa), and that it's was sold in a store call leightons which was an upscale mens clothing store (see photo) that was located in Manhattan NY where people like Walt Clyde Frazier use to shop back in the late 1960's and 70's. Thanks for your help

Most likely not made from mole fur. I believe the use of the word is finish / color related. My guess would be mid 1960s into the early 70s. It definitely has some Alpini influence.

Yes I have a similar one. It's kind of Alpini meets City. :) By the way I have heard this mentioned as Robinhood style which I do not believe is accurate for Barbisio. There is a historical connection with the Alpini hat and Barbisio (Super Bantam).

I've not yet received it so I dunno what info may be on the sweat.
There are just enough imperfections & variations in the straw to make me believe it to be a genuine Panama, sewn brim aside.
Vintage. Nothing like that being produced now. Looks nice enough though. A welcome addition.


Cuenca or Monti?
Opinions?
Observations?
Insights? [huh]

Interesting that it has those vent holes. They give it some safari flair.

It could be interesting this trip in "Cappellificio Cervo" the actual maker of Barbisio hats and others in Italy and abroad.

Do you know the current state of Cervo? Are they still making felt / hats at this factory? Back in 2013 someone told me they were going under.

Yes! Cervo are still making hats! They stock them at Salmagundi, in Boston MA.

I see they are still selling hats but I was wondering about the state of the factory in Youtube.

Steve,
in the video they stated that they put in action very old machinery in order to show how an hat born.
It was a sort of revival. I think they use more modern tools to made the modern hats.
About this I saw, on the web, here the links http://www.scenariomag.it/barbisio-autunno-inverno-2014-2015/ http://www.ilblogdelmarchese.com/barbisio-cappelli-autunno-inverno-2014-2015/ the presentation of the new collection and they introduce a new way to put colours on the felt.
Hats are nice, but the ribbons are, IMO, too froufrou :eusa_doh:

Daniele, I saw they are making a "Green -> Vegetable Felt" :) hat. Thanks for the info regarding the video. There are some modern forming machines (the ones that form the entire hat) in the video. It would be interesting to know if they are making their own felt like in the video.

The Barbisio arrived in beaten condition even if the seller claimed it was quite new.
He was right, after little steam and brush, the Barbisio of his grandfather is in excellent conditions.

It was made for a special occasion for the grandfather of the owner.
21148
It is a stingy brim Italian style.
21149
I presume it came from the seventies or maybe the sixties. This tipe of hats are very common in Italy in those days.
21150
21151
It has a 11 cm. crown and the brims are 4,5 cm, size is 59 cm. or 7 3/8 US. Interesting the color matching with a multicolor ribbon.

Very well conserved after a TLC it is here for the pleasure of fedora lovers.

Very nice Daniele Tanto. A great color and striking band. Is Odessa the name of this model, I wonder? I was there for a while, and never saw such a nice hat.

I presume Odessa is the name of that line of Barbisio hats.
Italians hatters have/had different methods to name the hats in Italy and abroad.
It could be interesting to try an history of Italians types of hats from the II WW, before I think it could be really diffcult.
By the way this Barbisio is particular.
