    Thanks for the well wishes and if I do find such a hat I will be sure to thank you personally.

    That's the thing I AM going nuts! It was a few weeks ago but I am still furious!

    Sheesh, I guess I need to take a step back and realize that it is only a hat. A beautiful, grey, large-sized hat....

    It's okay, the military offers free therapy. Hi, my name is Hollis and I'm here because I lost a vintage hat to a horrible eBay store and FedEx shipping...

    The Portis has a black sweatband but it also has some of the most amazing felt I have ever handled. Well, to be honest I have one trick left up my sleeve and if it ends up working like designed I will come out happy. We shall see...

    Thank you all for the sympathy, I appreciate it.

    Not a hat, but I'm really thrilled with the possibilities of this. It's a 'Travel-Master' double hat case complete with key. I've been wanting a hat travel case, and had resigned myself to getting one of those cowboy cases. If this one is as advertised it ought to be better. I do weep at the nogas that had to give up their hides to make it.

    on March 8th and after a few days I noticed it wasn't progressing on its journey to me. (In fact it never left New York) To make a long, sad, story short FedEx lost the package, "diligently" searched for it and now just wants to issue a refund (which the seller has to initiate). The bummer is that the seller couldn't care less about the whole situation and answers very vaguely to my emails. I WOULD RATHER HAVE THE HAT THAN THE MONEY!!!!! If any of you New Yorkers see a guy wearing this lid please beat him senseless and shoot me a PM if you please.

    To ease my pain I bid and won this beautiful Portis
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=009
    only to see that it is a 6 7/8 not a 7 1/2 The seller also has yet to respond to inquiries regarding the return of the hat!

    Lastly, the amazingly beautiful Oviatt I won recently is not as the seller described and my emails have gone mostly unanswered. I was offered the option of sending it back for a refund minus shipping and any and all eBay fees but that is it. The flaws aren't enough for me to want to give the hat back (perhaps flaw is too strong a word) but at the same time I spent an insane amount of money on this hat.

    Excuse me while I go explode....

    Mr. Jones, I feel your pain. I am shortly about to open not one, but two dispute cases on ebay against the same seller for selling me stuff that was cr*p.

    Anyway, you can open dispute cases against both of these sellers, to make sure you get your money back, even though we both know that isn't what you want.

    Re: the first auction. I've dealt with that seller, and they are a bit rough around the edges. On a good note, they aren't too bad on the phone, if you are a bit patient with the fact that they are busy and running a retail location when you call. Have you tried calling them? That worked for me, and we both were happy with the phone call.

    Just my .02.

    Vintage Betty,
    Do you know if you can get your shipping cost back too when you open an ebay dispute.

    It varies. Sometimes, you get sellers who kick it back for mistakes. But if you have to go to a dispute for a seller who won't respond, don't count on it.

    Tip (which I forgot to follow for one of my two auctions ):

    Keep your Paypal account empty, and pay by credit card via Paypal. This way, call your credit card company and let them dispute with Paypal for you, since Paypal Dispute Resolution Services S*CK. I've never won anything back using Paypal Dispute Resolution Services services , but won every dispute with my credit card company vs Paypal.

    That's terrific, Alan! I like the inserts and the instructions.

    I, too, wanted something to carry a hat or two in. I have one of those plastic cowboy hat carriers, but it's a bit unwieldy and takes up a lot of space in the trunk. I managed to score a case (with key! ) for a Knox One Hundred. It doesn't have an insert of any type, but I'll figure something out.




    Cheers,
    Tom
