    Thanks very much! I smiled when I read your response. You are right, if I like it I like it.

    Hey, I think I sold that hat to you. Tiny, isn’t it? I was just hoping that someone could use it rather than me throwing it away.

    6 5/8 hats are worthless for adults today. I have several friends who sell hats and they don’t even mess with them as they are not able to sell them.

    Could only be used by children.

    Almost true. My wife wears 6 3/4 in a man's hat. My sister's head was even smaller. She probably would have worn the 5/8.

    Like people have said, adult heads are rarely small enough for a 6 5/8 anymore. My sister passed 2 1/2 mo. ago, and I think she was a rare exception. It's an atractive hat. I don't think the dark brown 6 5/8 hat I bought would appeal to a woman, but that one might. You're probably a better judge than I.
    Have you searched inside of the Dobbs for any markings? Hats and sweatbands were normally marked for size during production in some way. Chalk is likely on the felt, and chalk or pencil on the back of the leather. It's usually a single digit. Many of my 7 1/8 hats have an 8 quickly scrawled in one or both of those locations.
    7 1/8 used to be a fairly big noggin. Now it seems to be the smallest size to garner significant demand.

    Just pried up the leather on the Dobbs and found a slip that says 7 5/8! I guess the Stetson can go back to the Salvation Army!

    Grrrrrr!
    Tapatalk again!

    Pictures first, then the question.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I was admiring moehawk's Dobbs West 25, then fetched my Dobbs West dress Western for a closer look. No paper tags except the union stamped size tag, but the front of the sweat has a numeral 2 inside of a "catch the luck" horseshoe.
    I grabbed my beautiful, green, Dobbs West western weight, and it's horseshoe is holding a 3.
    What does it mean?

    7 5/8 is a good size!
    You can send me the little one! I have grandchildren, and apparently some of my family have their brains packed tighter than others

    Nice Dobbs Wests! I believe the numbers in the horse shoe were used by Dobbs West, in place of X rating. I have seen some with a gold horse shoe pin on the ribbon. Here are some photos of my 25. The model name on the tag is Open Trail.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Anyone have any idea how I might shape the hat? I’ve tried starch but that did not seem to work. I hate the front with no crease and therefor I have not been wearing it[​IMG][​IMG]

    You mean front pinch??
    All mesh....i’d just iron it down the front like an Indy hat. The pinches will follow with wear and handling.
    Thats a cool hat. What is it?? Got a link??
