I got this beauty from Bond a couple of years ago and never wear it. I never have an occasion to dress up, it seems. Perfect condition.
Asking what I paid (I think), $250 shipped in the US, probably $30 more elsewhere.
I'll put it on...
Here's a rare old lid that awaits a head one size smaller than mine.
Dimensions: oval head space 7 3/4 by 6 1/2 inches, raw-edge brim 3 inches, open crown 5.5 inches, crown as shown 5 inches.
Sweat nice and soft, no popped stitches. Great, thick, dense felt. No stains or odors. Color varies...
This is the most dense, creamy-soft, claylike fur felt I've had the pleasure to handle, and it rather pains me to sell it. It gets no head time, though. It outclasses me, pure and simple.
At some point decades ago, I believe, it got a makeover: a new liner and sweatband. Ergo, it has no...

Measurements in inches:
Oval opening 8.0 by 6.75

$125 shipped within US. Paypal is same as email, randooch(at sign)gmail.com
This is a great hat to pack for trips. I took it with me on my travels, but didn't wear it much because it fits a little too big, and I was worried it would blow off. Nice, soft lightweight felt, comfy fabric sweat, casual leather band, easy style.
Brim is 2 1/4 inches, crown just shy of 5...
Wish to heck this were my size.
Straw is in great condition, nice and flexible with no flaws. Ribbon is a bit tired looking. Sweatband is ripply and not very supple, but might be improved by the application of a leather conditioner. Could be worn as is, though, for sure.
Hat could use your...
I would like to send this to one of you history/cartography buffs.
It has 48 pages, one of which is loose, but it is complete.
Fascinating pre-WWII geographical reference.
$10 shipped! :). (in the US; more elsewhere.)
