    The hat @Garrett posted above is now mine. Don't have to post the auction pics anymore, but here are my own.
    Barbisio in a size 57 (it's a bit roomy for me). Can't tell you the colour name, because there are no labels at all inside the hat. Overwelt edge at 6,5cm and crown at 11,5cm at the center dent. It's a substantial hat. I think it's later than the thirties, but that's just based on the liner, which I think is a later style for Barbisio. The felt has a nice hand and takes any shape you want with no effort at all. Barbisio at the top of its game.

    Super Barbisio Extra lusso in a size 59 (USA 7 3/8; UK 7 1/4)
    [​IMG]
    The hat arrived in nice conditions, but I want it perfect so it was carefully restore in Netherland by Penumbra hats
    It is a hat that worth a restoration
    [​IMG]
    The color felt is "Libia" and finish, short fur, is "Taupé"
    [​IMG]
    Edged brim at 5,5cm and crown at 11 cm at the center dent with a contrasting ribbon
    [​IMG]
    I think it's early sixties hat, just based on the liner that was the same in the fifties. I have some interesting information from the seller
    [​IMG]
    Lining is really elegant and it was one of the top of its game
    [​IMG]
    The felt has a "peachy" touch and takes any shape you want with no effort at all
    [​IMG]
    Expendable with a good offer;)

    Very nice and looks like almost mint condition; what has to be restored?

    Georg, the Barbisio needed a refresh. The sweatband had to be fixed, as well as the felt and the ribbon. Considering the quality of the Super Barbisio I decided for its complete restoration and cleaning. The result was magnificent, thanks to the qualities of Fleur from Penumbra Hats in the Netherlands. In the next few days I will put online other Borsalino restorations and other brands, after having long thought about what was worth working. This is one of the dilemmas that often happens when you have used hats in hand, I wrote something a few days ago about the quality of the Borsalino, but I'll be back in the next few days about this topic

    Beautiful hat, Daniele, and by the looks of it indeed worthy of a refurbishment.

    If there were ever a hat destined to be mine, this one is it. This is a Barbisio "Piemonte". It is a gray, long-hair fedora. I really like long-hairs so that's a check. It was marked a size 7 and I'm a 7 1/8. As you can tell by the pictures, it is a 7 1/8th. One of my best friends in the world lives in Piemonte. Finally, when I got the hat, the initials in it were A. H. Those are my initials. And this is my first Barbisio ever. Ever. The pictures aren't great, but here they are. Looks 50s.

    Looks like a wonderful hat, Adrian. Once you get a taste for Barbisio you'll want more of them. Congrats.

    Stefan,

    If Barbisios are as good as this one (and the ones above certainly look beautiful), I have a feeling one or two more of them will find their way onto my hat stand.

    Sometimes, rarely, even some old hat is my size
    View attachment 184448
    "Lobbia" Barbisio REX size 59, black felt
    View attachment 184449
    Sold in Berlin at the Max Eckard store
    View attachment 184450
    The interest for this Barbisio is the fact that inside the sweat band there is stamped the origin of the skin: Paris - France and a date that I cannot decipher the month and day, but the year is 1939 (for a clear picture I have to use professional equipment)
    View attachment 184451
    The felt is very soft and silky, in its composition there is fur and also wool
    View attachment 184452
    These are the dimensions: 5.5 curled brims, 14 cm open crown. the finishes are first class
    View attachment 184453
    A eighty years old hat from Sagliano Micca will worth some thrilling in delivery
    Another piece of the Barbisio puzzle

    Barbisio Trilby / Stingy "Algeri" in "Extra - Extra"
    Maybe 1960s.
    At size 60 cm / US 7 1/2 too big for me.
    If interested, send me a message.

    A memory of the Italian fifties
    [​IMG]
    Barbisio "Silice" in size 59 or 7 3/8 US.
    [​IMG]
    Telescopic shape and back bow. This kind of hats were called "Mambo" in Italy
    [​IMG]
    This arrived, quite new, with some brothers that now lives in the Netherlands
    [​IMG]
    The felt has a very nice touch. The dimensions are: raw brim at 6 cm. and low crown at 10 cm. the ribbon is 4 cm.
    [​IMG]
    This is one of my favourite shade of grey made by Barbisio in the its heyday of production and the finishes are first class
    [​IMG]
    So, for lovers of Barbisio and Italian hats, here is a rare specimen, even if the most spectacular one in this category lives in Stefan's house :rolleyes:

    Another fine example of Barbisio versatility, Daniele. And their finishing is indeed second to none.

    My first Barbisio, a very pettable medium hair nutria with gills:

    Specs:
    1-3/4" Brim (1/4" overwelt)
    5-1/4" Crown (open)
    1-5/16" Ribbon
    3.6oz Weight
    Interesting to note that the model name is Rimini. Aside from being a stingy brim it looks nothing like the one owned by @mayserwegener.
