    Thanks, Garrett! I was shocked that it fit. I've never had a 6 7/8 that fit this well. Whats funny is that the size 7 western I received on the same day is a bit tight. I guess I can't win them all. LOL.

    Thanks so much, Steve! I was shocked when I found the white and reddish-brown furs mixed in with the black furs. Its really a pretty finish up close.

    Continuing last year's buys. Again instead of the typical new hats thread I thought to revive an old one.

    Biltmore velour in 7&1/8, wears smaller though, so it fits nicely. 20210125_233506.jpg 20210129_211912.jpg
    Quite hard to capture color and sheen on this one. It's actually gray but looks brown under certain light. 20210103_145023.jpg 20201231_183018.jpg 20201231_183307.jpg 20201231_151055.jpg
    Initially I thought I would use that one as a beater in the cold winter days, though I must say I am impressed by the quality of that lid. It's not like a pre war Huckel but it is in par with other European post war ones that I own.

    Many many thanks to Brent for finding, buying and sending this one to me, couldn't be happier :)

    I upsized this same hat (except it was an exceptionally long hair, almost did not look like it had been felted but was the actual beaver pelt. Same style, same chain link band, similar feather. I did the work for a man my age that inherited it from his father. We figured as best we could it was from the 1960's.
