    I got this today. Flat as a pancake when I got it, but I've steamed it back into something resembling a hat. Still might need a bit more to get it to where I want it. It's an english 7-1/8, which is an American 7-1/4.
    It's my first Herbert Johnson, and I must say I'm impressed. The ribbon's a bit off center, but the felt is superb.

    Dinerman, Good looking, legendary hat! This is not a criticism, but a possible plus. I noticed the slightly buckled sweatband. I have a Lock & Co. (St. James Street, London) which is labeled one size too big for me, but because the crown has shrunk slightly it fits my 7 1/8 head. Does your Herbert Johnson fit like a US 7 1/8? (Which I think I remember being your size.)

    I'm somewhere on the borderline between the sizes, so it really depends on the hat. This one fits pretty well

  6. Dinerman,
    I think that might be one of the older, better HJ's you've got there! Don't know for sure, but I think so. Either way, though, nice lid.
