    I just won a Wormser. Here is the photo the seller had and I'll add more when it gets here either tomorrow or Monday.

    I hope you you are right. All I got was the smaller photos. I hope it lives up to the reality.

    Nice. I keep on seeing these hats here that I didn't find on E Bay!
     
  7. I sure hope that this one will fit. I think that one will make a fantastic spring & summer lid. It should go perfectly with a seersucker suit and a pair of spectator shoes.

    Cheers!

  8. I recently found a new condition Wormser at a small town antique store. I don't think the crown's ever been creased.
    It is shapped exactly like the one that Johnny Depp wore in Public Enemies, but it is this incredibly rich, dark, dark, dark chocolate ... almost black.
    2 inch ribbon with a back bow.
    What an amazing hat.
    I started looking at examples on line. They appear to have been great hats.
    Congratulations on finding this one,

    Sam

    Well, the new Wormser I got in really did live up to my hopes from the tiny pics the ebay auction had of it. I am very happy.

    What do you guys think... is it from the 1950s?

    Possibly. Or 40s. There's no way it's a 60s hat, not from any year in the 1960s.

    Seems to me the price of $8.50 might put it in the early 50s. Thoughts?
     
  12. Great hat, MV, let's see it on your head!

  14. Now we're talkin', fine catch on that one!
     
  15. By the way, MV, what color is the hat? Looks like a beige or light tan, and the ribbon looks orange. Reason I ask, I have a Stetson similar but smaller brim, it had an olive ribbon on it, and I was thinking of changing it. That orange looks really nice with the light color.

    It is a light tan with a copper colored ribbon. The photos on the earlier page really captured the color well, too, I must say.

    My newest favorite hat of exactly 4 hours since in came in the mail!

    Beautiful hats here, but it saddens me when I remember that the Wormser store here in town closed down before I ever got into hats :(. Oh well, there's always the bay :D!
