  6. Late to the party on this one. This is a show stopper Doug! That matching ribbon really works with that color, and that bash! Congrats on such a fantastic find. It was worth the wait.

    I've been wearing it inside all day! Well, I took it off when I was cooking up some pork tenderloin...

  8. The photographs of this Borsalino arrived me before Christmas from a vendor with whom I've done some business in the past years.
    Two were the Borsalino offered in the deal. A fairly recent and this, it had on the photos a light gray color.
    I bought it to make me a small gift, without much conviction.
    When it arrived I felt better
    The color is a fantastic green and the felt finish has a pronounced touch of peach.
    But are not all roses: the sweatband is in poor condition and very dry and hat seemed to come from an arid climate zone
    Everything was very dry and brittle.
    Some steam bath and a little patience and here is the Borsalino from end of the Year.
    More to come in the Borsalino Brotherhood
    Have a nice day from a cold Verona. Four days below zero until - 7 Celsius

  14. Quite an interesting hat. The band is a standout. The brim is not of excessive proportions, I would have it in the rotation as well.

    I'm not sure on the rarity, though I didn't find many pictures on the web of one like it. It seemed like a shape I would be tolerably happy wearing. I took something of a chance because it's a size smaller than my best size, but it sets my head nicely without any coercion.

    I think Gus was a little tougher than I am.

    It's 3 1/4" on the front and back and 3" on the sides, but with the pencil curl it comes in at 3" and 2 5/8". I like it's size and I like the braid and leather band too. In excellent condition so I'm happy the deal.

  16. Very nice Gun Club Michael! I had one like that back in the early 80s, although the crown was more of a telescope or gambler style crease. Same color, pencil curl, and band though. Yours looks great creased like that!

    Thanks. Did you buy yours new in the early 80's? I like the crease it came with, though at the moment I've got a narrow diamond in it. It's fairly agreeable to shaping on the crown. The brim is steam shaping territory. And I think the brim is somewhat distorted at the moment due to shipping in a box that was too small. It seems to be relaxing a bit though and I'll try it for a few wearings before I think about doing anything different. I'll probably wear it tomorrow and maybe even the next day as it sounds like good felt hat weather.

  18. Indeed I did Michael. I bought it on clearance at a local western store when I was in high school. I remember how stoked I was to have a real Stetson on a teenage burger flipper's wages.
