    JeffB, You probably did quite well. It looks like a near identical clone to a Borsalino "Savoy" I have. (I'd post a picture, but it would just look like your hat!) It looks like the sweat band is the older, non-reeded style, directly sewn to the crown. Also, if I'm not mistaken, you've got a "Cavanagh" edge!!!

    2 Big Hats ?????

    One of the true Joys of ebay is the wealth of information & the Great pictures the Seller will, sometimes, provide you. I recently bought 2 hats from the same seller on the bases of the following description and pictures of a hat shaped black Blob..

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=021

    Purchase Price $11.95
    The hat has a beautiful whip stitch around the rim and a small canvas band around the crown. The rim is 2 1/2 inches and from the top of the crown to the bottom of the rim is approximately 6 inches. Item does not come with hat box.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=021

    Purchase price $12.68
    Up for bids we have a gently used Black Worth and Worth Trilby Hat. A Trilby hat is similar to a Fedora but with a Narrower brim. The brim of this hat is about 2 1/4 thick and the hat is about 6 inches tall.


    Color may be off due to lighting


    First, I respect both Brands and know that they have made Very Good Hats. However, I Ass-U-Me they have made cheap ones???
    Anyway at these prices and Combined shipping
    How wrong can I Be.......
    ps: Imageshack is having problems so no pics today

    Whippet for $20.50

    Did anyone here get this one? I didn't bid on it as it was most likely too small even for my pea head. Looks like a nice one although not pristine.

    I saw it, but I already have a brown Whippet, and I figured I didn't need a 4th gray hat. I actually tried to tip off a friend of mine who probably would have loved it, guess he didn't get my message.

    YAY! Somebody posting pictures of an actual hat on their own actual head. How much better is that than all those boring ebay pictures and listings?

    Thank you thank you thank you PhilS.


    BTW. I don't know a thing about Beaverbrook, apart from the name. The hat looks really fine though. Good one.


    edit to say: arrgh. if only I typed faster this embarrassing situation would have been avoided. Anyway, the hat looks better in your photos than in the listing - which really adds nothing of any use whatsoever - apart from the price.

    This one is going to take a little work.



    Mallory 6 3/4. It will need to become a 7 1/8. Did I mention it was 99 cents, plus shipping?

    At least you got it for a reasonable price. My latest misadventure involved this gem:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...TODAY.m238.lVI
    It was not in good shape, and it is a size 7. Not gonna fit on my 7 3/8 noggin. Is there any recourse? Or am I stuck with a tiny hat. I paid way more than 99 cents.
