    I bought this off of ebay recently and it's just slightly too small to fit me. If it was even a little bit bigger I would not sell it as it's really an amazing hat. From wearing it I'd say it's between a size 7 1/2 and 7 5/8. I will put up some measurements later. The felt is a thick velour and is really something. The sweatband is split in a few places as shown in the pictures. There is a cellophane? lining between the sweatband and the lining. The lining has piping.

    The crown is extremely straight sided.
    The brim should be 2 5/8" but I'll measure it myself later tonight.
    Ribbon 2"
    I'll try to get a crown measurement later tonight.

    The color is a little redder than the photos show.
    Make an offer on this.
     
  3. I am very interested, but you did not state a price!

    I would like to get $150 shipped for it but if you'd like to offer less I'll keep you in mind in case no one else is interested.
     
  5. That's a little beyond my means right now. BUT I do have a Herbert Johnson, circa late 70's, Optimo panama in 7 3/4 that I'd be willing to offer as a partial trade, if you are interested. It looks a lot like the hat Marcus wears in Last Crusade. It's in fair to good condition (the brim binding needs resewing, but that will be done) and there is a break in the sweat. But it's still a nice hat.

    PM me a photo and I'll let you know if we can work something out
     
  7. Cool hat. That's the first time I've seen the price embossed on the sweatband.

    bump, I'll give a discount if anyone wants to purchase more than one of the hats I have up.

    Same here I think it's kind of neat...

    I measured and the actual dimensions are as follows:
    Brim 2.75"
    Crown at highest point 6" (in the center and drops down to about 5.5" at the sides
    Opening: 8"X6.75" which gives me a circumference of 24" on an ellipse calculator.
    Ribbon is 2"
    Wind cord is functional

    Hey Mr. Lucky,

    For some reason I'm not able to send you a PM so can you please contact me? I'm VERY interested in your Herbert Johnson.

    I'm at wannabeu222003@yahoo.com. THANKS!
     
  14. I think you have to have 15 posts to PM. I'll send you an email in the morning.

    How about $90 shipped? My hat rack is too full right now and what doesn't fit needs to go.
