    And what do you want to tell me with these measurements? I myself have hats with these. They are totally in line with this "transition period". What about "But of course it's only one criterion" are you not able to understand? Is this some kind of: I want to misunderstand you, so I can tell you...

    That indeed is the same illustration. And at the first glance this seems to be a late 30s hat with a small brim. But if you look how far it protrudes on the left, it's clear, this is pretty much. It's just the arkward perspective that fools us. And secondly, it's a bad way to date something from...

    That's great information! So my guess early 30s was not so bad and it could be earlier. The only thing why I doubt it is earlier, is the thin hat band. That doesn't look much 20s to me. But of course it's only one criterion. Ah, ok, the others are not German (The last one ist pretty much the...

    Only one other? Interesting. The picture, that you had back then was not very sharp. Maybe they where located in Machland and the "M" stands for Machland, but my hat definitely has the label "Hochland" (and as far as I can see, it is the same as back then). I have a closer picture here: As you...

    The second hat, as I said, is a Hückel Prima Size 57. The hat band here is only 4 cm, the same as my Hückel Crystall Velour. The brim is 5.8 cm (front) and 5.2 cm (sides), so a little bit more than the Crystall Velour and less than the G.J.M. above. That leads me to think, that it may be early...

    Today I have two black Velour hats, that are somewhat compareable, but I think two posts will be cleaner. The first is a G.J.M. Hochland (Bavarian or Austrian?), but not sold as such, just as a standard mall hat, as the sweat band is marked with "Echt Velour", not G.J.M (the same with the...

    So upset of being wrong? Sorry for that. I postet a couple of hats in the past. Feel free to look it up. But that seems to be another childish reaction, not a real wish.

    I think Steur is right, when he says: "The perceived waviness comes from folding the front of the brim down, fedora style, which is not how this hat was constructed and was meant to be worn."

    Ah, now I see, only the first picture is taken in the right brim position. The others with the brim forced down, which is causing the mess. Thank you!

    Of course such an edge is common, but it looks off. Also that the brim is wavy in an unpleasent way seems to stem from this. If it's done by factory it's done much cleaner.

    Not cut, but folded and sewn. That would look more accurate made if it was original, I think.

    Very nice hat! It looks like the brim was wider originally? But it's still enough. It would really be nice, if you could make another photo where you would judge the color more accurate. Anyway: The color seen here is great!

    Today I have a black wool (?) fedora in size 56 from Apia. There definitely was a clip on the inside of the crown, and I just left the shape as it is from this tool. There was a brand label at the top inside of the crown, but only some glue remains are left. The felt is not as rough as with a...

    I also like these cheaper hats, they are all the more mysterious without any name, make, but nice hats nonetheless. And one can be sure not to have something out of the ordinary, but as the common man would have worn. Espeacially because from two meters distance you can't really tell if it's...

    Today I have a fake-velour Fedora in a brown-beige-greenish grey (haha) with a brown hat band in Size 57. The brim is 5,2 cm, the hat band 4,1 cm wide and the crown height 10,5 cm. Fake-velour, because this is made of wool (I think) and just imitates a velour hat, as I already had a dark blue...

    I guess I'm not smart enough to use the search function, but is there a way to not only search threads like "Hats", but also only a "sub thread" like "ask a question, get an answer"?
