  1. Fantastic hat Stefan. The heather colors are beautiful and the hat itself is an exceptional example of the hat making craft.

    Richard, thanks, but I can't take credit. This is actually Steve's hat and I only had my greedy eye on it.

    What a great collection, Steve!
    If you ever decide to give off one of these fantastic velours, please let me know ;)

    This one I can take credit for but I gladly share that with Daniele (Tanto) who found it for me (among several others). So my thanks go out to him.

    Borsalino in the colour Misto lapis, size 56. Grey colour with blue tones. It's a heather felt of incredible quality. Curled brim at 5cm and crown at 11 cm in front. Not a homburg and not a lords hat either, but a dress hat with curled brim. It actually works as a fedora as well but it does not like its brim snapped down. I'm thinking late 1930's.

  12. Two great looking Marathons Justin. Love the early "Lord's Hat" the best. The finish is so interesting.
