  1. WoW !

    That is a nice lid. Someone did get lucky. I bet we will soon be seeing it here at the lounge...

    Detailing yes,

    But I think that hat is butt-ugly. And a teeny size to boot.
  3. WOW.
    Nope. Not me.
  4. Nope, not here.
  5. Our Mr. Scotrace is being facetious ;) He is well aware that 7 3/8 is not a teeny size.lol

    My error. I misread. It's a good, desireable size.

    Wouldn't be caught dead in it though. lol
  7. That auction definitely lasted only as long as it took a hat fancier to find it.

    Then WHAM!
    IN with the BIN!

    That was my retrospective Sports Commentary-

  8. Like the song says: "WHOOMP! THERE IT I-I-S!"

    The winner is a Lounge member. Not me, though.
  10. :) :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :)

    Very glad it was a Lounger! (Not glad that it wasn't you, Snrbfshn :()

  11. Forgot to add that this hat was made by CROFUT & KNAPP. Jamespowers and others here know that KNAPP was one of the very finest hatmakers of the Golden Era. For some reason, vintage KNAPP hats almost never show up on the market.

    Just a long way of saying congratulations to the Lounger who won!

    Yes...congradulations are in order...as a good buy on a vintage lid. However...not to my liking.

  13. I don't care who made it. The hat to me is butt ugly...:(
  14. Then be glad that someone else bought it. :)

    As with all things, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I like the hat. The stitching on the brim and ribbon give it a rugged, outdoorsman look, but it's dressy enough to wear with a tweed sportcoat, or a tailored safari jacket.

  16. Bradford fedora

    From the same seller, a Buy-it-now Bradford fedora that I just could not pass up as well.

    That is one nice hat at that price . It pays to check Ebay often !!

  18. Well, whoever the buyer is, he/she also has acquired off ebay, a Stetson Open Road, a Stetson 20 and a Stetson Playboy, all since around the holidays.

    Some nice hats in that group....
