    I've put one of my Art Fawcett hats on eBay, a fedora in his Century grade 100% beaver felt. It has a 2 3/4" brim and the ribbon is 1 3/8". I've had it for a couple years, and I think I must like smaller brims because this one has mostly stayed in the closet. It is in great condition and it comes in one of Art's hatboxes. My head size is 23 1/8", so it falls between a 7 3/8 and a 7 1/2 hat size. The inside of the hat measures 8 1/2 inches from front to back and 6 1/2 inches from side to side.

    It's listed at $230 plus shipping on the bay, but I'll take $200 plus shipping here.

    Here's the link:

    Is the pic in the Ebay listing representative of the true colour? Is it a medium gray? Are there blue tones in the hat?
    What is the crown height?

    I'd say just have Art trim the brim. But how high is the crown?

    Sorry, I didn't see the questions until this morning. But, this one is now sold to forum member BillC.

    The eBay auction is no longer active. BillC has told me that he'll take it, but funds are still pending. NewJack will take it if BillC does not.

    Please tell me the brim is not being cut down. NewJack, I know you won't!
