    Thanks, Tim. In a way I can understand why they're doing it, but it's not like I was taking the whole shelf of hats in one go. Come to think of it: I did take ten Borsalinos once in one of their shops. It caused no more than a frown then.

    Whether it's one dealer buying ten or five individuals buying two I assume it's the same amount of money in the end for the shop. The dealer may try to negotiate a bulk price since he's buying in quantity. Or five individuals may buy other things besides hats and end up spending more total than just a dealer buying hats specifically. Oh well, their store their policies. Just have to play the game. Part of the hunting fun.

    Stefan, Another super find! I have a good number of Janyška hats mostly from my May 2016 NOS Czech find. I visited the old factory site back in September 2019. Here is some more on Janyška.

    Thank you, Steve. A pleasant surprise indeed to find this one. I looked on your site, which is always enlightening, before I posted this one. And I saw you posted the Tonak Gazela yesterday.

    Stefan, Thanks! Janyška became Tonak after WWII. The factory was in operation until the very early 1960s.

    Selentino Queen. I like this hat much better than my velour Prince. Wore it for a three mile walk in the rain today. The water just rolled off. Performed much better than any of my modern Stetsons. FB_IMG_1585526117893.jpg FB_IMG_1585526130254.jpg

    In my opinion definitely worth being nostalgic. With Nový Jičín / Neutitschein and Tonak you have the history plus the last original (1868) operational large scale (fur preparation, felt production, hat production) factory in world.
