I'm interested. I often fit a 7 1/8 that is a bit on the bigger side, or a 7 1/4 if it is a tad tight. How do you think this would work for me? P.S. Thanks for posting photos taken in natural light.

Borsalinos, particularly those (such as this hat) not made for the US market tend to run a little on the small side.

My hat sizing device usually measures hats a bit smaller than they actually are. I’d say this hat is just between a 7 1/8 and 7 1/4.

I will buy it. Looks like a terrific hat.
Thanks for pulling out the hat sizing device. First time purchasing here; how do we exchange information?
@mark balen, i think you are going to love this hat. Borsa MGL is a wonderful hat with such a nice velvet feel. This is a nice mid-brim one with a great overwelt and Caffe is a super color.
Brent did you right.

Yeah! I still remember when you gifted me my first one, B! Thank you!
Still makes me smile, Max, remembering how much you wanted a MGL and how hard you were looking. The “Silver Fox” i called it, twin to Jeff’s, @bowlerman, and a great example of the different proportions and treatments Borsa did with some models, like with Gorasgu.
You’ve come far since then Max!!
