    Custom dove grey homburg 7 3/8

    I just listed a homburg on eBay. It’s an old custom hat and aside from a smudge, that may well come out, it’s a fantastic hat. The felt is great. https://www.ebay.com/itm/284793756631?hash=item424f07dbd7:g:FDsAAOSwH9VibdYA As long as no one has bid on it on eBay, I’m offering it here for...

    Beaver Brand black 7 1/2 fur felt adventure hat

    This is a recent purchase. I can often coax size 7 1/2 hats up to 7 5/8 long oval but this felt is very stiff and wasn’t having any of it. No moth damage, no stains. The sweat looks fine and I’ve conditioned it. This is western weight felt and it’s not a soft “fedora.” The raw edge brim is...

    Biltmore black fedora size 7 3/4 or 62cm

    This is a recently acquired hat that was part of a two hat deal I made. The hat was in new condition and I gave it a simple and quick dry crease for these photos. It will be shipped open crown. The crown height is lower than what I personally prefer. $100 shipped contiguous US.

    New midrange cowboy hat quality difference

    I'm a urban Texas guy but wear a cowboy hat almost every day. I tried them as an experiment for the first time about 5 years ago, purchasing inexpensive hats, one wool felt by Justin, one palm leaf (store brand, but almost certainly actually a Sunbody), each in the $50-$60 range. I'm about ready...

    Snap brim and rain

    I purchased a new fur felt hat (not vintage) with a 75 mm snap brim, the cheapest fur felt (not wool felt, mind you) hat I could find (79 euros, if I recall correctly). I love it and wear it constantly, but one night after walking home from a party, I was caught in a slight shower without an...

    Selentino Tonak hats Redux

    The gentlemen who is selling the Selention Tonak fur felt fedoras on eBay is preparing to list more of the hats. Although I have never met him, I have seen helping him get the word out. I don't have any skin in this game. The hats are new old stock (NOS) and so far the colors have...

    Selentino Tonak hat cache

    I just ran across a nice guy in Riverside, California who stumbled upon a large horde off NOS SELENTINO Tonak 100% fur felt hats he's selling for $40 plus shipping. These look like what the Burlington Coat Factory sold a few years back. Interestingly, he has a lot of hard to find large sizes. Be...
