    So you are saying to wait until January to try and buy one?
    The other option is to buy a similar looking hat. There are many thin-ribbon hats from other makers that look very similar to the Strats and just as nice.

    Woah, page 666....

    Anyways, you could also get a custom hat made similar to the Strat. Typically there's a bit of a wait, and you may end up with a price-tag close to the $200 mark depending on the felt and options (brim binding, etc), though the hat will be brand new and made specifically for you. There are a lot of threads here with info on custom hat makers.

    Dorsay Hats Tardan Fur Felt

    Anybody know anything about Mexican hats, specifically Dorsay hats? If so, I'd be interested in hearing what you know about this hat. I just bought this Dorsay Hat with tardan fur felt on a whim. It looked like an interesting hat in the pictures so I took a chance on it. I haven't received it yet though.

    I've not heard of that maker, but it looks like very nice hat, one of the FLers from Mexico may be familiar with the brand. Looks like it was made in the state of Nogales.

    Yes, I think that is the address (124 Obregon Ave, Nogales). The Tardan Fur is what has me puzzled. Maybe it is beaver but I don't come up with any translation when I try different translators on the internet.

    Well Mr.Dean if it wasn't for all the loungers buying all the hats I could save money.Now all you have to do is convince everyone to stop buying them so I could "buy" 1 or 2 at a decent price.(haha)

    I see many that are 200.00 plus.
    Thank you.
    As mentioned already, there is a demand for certain models that is greater thatn many other models of hats. The trend or popularity of specific models adds pressure to the value. As stated too they only made so many so the supply is limited to those that survive. Condition and also the original value tended to be high, they were usually a higher quality hat, better felts and so on. Collectors recognize that there is a certain added value as the felts are percieved to be of a quality rarely seen today. You would find it difficult to have a reproduction made for the price of the ones up for bid (usually).

    Cry me that river...I swim in the deep end (size 7 5/8). Come dive in with the sharks & see how much you pay for a nice vintage when they show up.
    Those in 7 1/2 & 7 3/8 should be glad certain folks aren't actively buying.....
