    Thanks Steve - I knew you'd have a lead on the maker! Re: label, it merely repeats "Ema" as another line below "Garn"

    I had to immediately snatch this one up. Luckily was looser than the listing size of 56 and fits my 57 head. Im unfamiliar with the maker EMA, guessing this to be about 20s.

    Thanks Buddy! I still enjoy the forums but not a lot to add lately - alas the downside of being sensible with my spend :P

    Hope you've all been well! Not a lot of new activity from me, but managed a new addition to the collection. I believe a 30s Brüder Bohms made for the French market. Luckily this gamble paid off and fits me :) edit: I think very similar to one Steve got from Panos bar the backbow

    Hi Swinglish, I'm very interested in the grey wool suit (if handymike passes on the pants). What would shipping be to New Zealand? Happy to chat via dm. Thanks,

    Thanks gents - reaffirming to see both strands of thought which went through my head. The 11 March 1944 certainly was something I considered, but I haven't found much evidence one way or the other. From a more contextual perspective, Steve's thesis around the geopolitical situation was pushing...

    Beautiful finds Stefan - have to say, out of the recent batch the Biset is the pick for me. Always love a heathered lighter felt - and with such good proportions!

    Pretty exciting find for me - sourced locally in New Zealand, a P.C Habig sold in the Polish market. Tagged as a 56 but fits loose so perfect for my 57.5 head! My feeling is towards 30s/40s. Unfortunately can't make out the stamp on the sweat.

    Latest acquisition. Early 20s 3 piece in a chocolate with teal and burgundy stripes. I'm in love with the suiting, subtle peak lapels and the flat fronted waistcoat - plus fish tails rather than bunny ears

    G.B.Borsalino Fu Lazzaro & C. <1936

    Thanks Steve - I haven't really left, just cut back on the hat purchases a lot! This one was too good to pass though :) Wonderful! I just mentioned it to him and he said he can't quite recall - oh to have so many hats pass my hands as to forget something like this eh?

    G.B.Borsalino Fu Lazzaro & C. <1936

    Hope this is the appropriate thread. First acquisition for a while. I strongly suspect this is Borsalino is pre-war, but unfortunately no labels or tags other than the crown sticker.

    Hopefully breathing some life back to this thread with a late 20s German piece. I absolutely adore the brown suiting and lapels of this period.

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

    30s Tress and Co today. Much wider brim than what I normally sport; unique grosgrain sweat.

    Great seeing all of your latest finds - I'm practically green with envy! A recent purchase (seller's photos) of a soft-felt Bruder Bohm. I also recieved two pre-war Huckels that I need to get around to photographing - one a tagged 56 which luckily fits my 57 size head, the other sadly, a 54.
