    I can't see myself paying that much, based on your description. I've bought a vintage Borsalino for half that in an antique store.

    On the inside of my 1950's Penney's Marathon's sweatband, there is a stamp that says "LBC", and a stamp under that, which I am unable to make out. Any idea as to what these mean?

    I seem to have acquired quite a serious fever... and the only cure is more hats!

    Hello,

    my question is, how much difference is between rabbit- and beaverfelt? I have got a custom rabbitfelt-hat, now thinking about getting the nearly same one in beaver. It only costs 20$ more. So, is a beaverfelt worthy to get a new hat like the one you already have?

    Beaver obviously is the best we can get,most fur felts are made from a blend of both rabbit and beaver or even all rabbit thus the cheaper prices.Beaver is also the most durable,instead of buying the same hat again why not try something a little different in style and if there's only a $20 dollar difference in price I'd opt for the beaver at least you could compare on your own then.(don't quote me)

    Hello everyone I am hoping that I might get some advise and insight , I am looking at a few hats one is a stratoliner and another one a stetson "dune" .

    I like the dune and it looks similar to the stratoliner , I might try to buy both of them and was wondering if the Dune is for lack of a better word is "acceptable".
    I always wear a suit ,always vintage looking and was also wondering how that would work with my wardrobe in other words would it "pass" for the style and period and also if any of you member's own or have bought the "dune' in the past.

    Thanks in advance ,

    All the Best, Fashion Frank

    Well, what period do you prefer to style after my friend?

    this guy has a Dune on his head, with a suit on. It is the pic titled Western fedora.

    A Stratoliner would be a "dressier" hat for sure over the Dune. The Dune does have a bound edge, but it's got a really wide brim, which is fairly stiff, and shaped much like an Aussie outback hat.

    Late 30's early 40's ,see the issue is that I have a ton of Fedoras but no hats with a bigger brim IE:: the "gangster look" type of hat with a bigger brim than the fedora.

    I have shied away from hats with bigger brims in the past because I have a small head and don't want to look like I'm "swimming" in a hat .

    However due to you kind folks on this forum who all pretty much said that I could get away with a little bit of a bigger brimed hat ,I'm going to take the plunge on stratoliners and saw a "dune" Gun Club that looks alot like the stratoliner also.
