    Beaver felt isn't really that hard to get and that price isn't astonishing.

    As to what I think of the hat, I think for just a little bit more than that price, you could get a 100% beaver felt hat from one of the custom hatters that frequent the lounge. TonyB of Tumwater in particular sells custom beaver felt hats for a base price of $275.00. Art Fawcett would be about $100 more expensive. Those are just two, although I believe at this point TonyB's prices are the cheapest. I'd shop around. -M

    Definitely expensive, but those sure are beautiful hats. Pretty unusual, too, I would think, and probably long lasting. I would love to get one.

    Mike Miller at Northwesthats.com will do a 100% beaver felt, totally custom for $200. I've seen his work and you are getting far more than you are paying for.

    I bought one and returned it. It's a very nice factory hat but the crown was too low for me allowing the top of my head to contact the tip of the crown. While it's a perfectly fine hat if it fits you properly I would agree with Mulceber that your money would be better spent ordering a hat from tonyb for the same money:

    I have to agree. Actually if you cannot find something nice on eBay or even here on the Fedora Lounge classifieds, it would be a very wise choice to spend that much on a Custom hat.

    Go custom!! You will like the finish and the hand crease MUCH more (IMHO)

    Greetings. I recognize this is an old thread but my Signes Beaver Fedora is new...purchased in Barcelona at Sombreria Obach about two weeks ago...I am loving it...it’s a fine hat...not custom but a very, very fine hat. Hope you bought it and are enjoying it.
