    Alan,

    I wanted that one but got out sniped at the end! Eventually I'm going to find an old western like that in my size.

    Tom,

    I know you are right but every time I put it on and get ready to start out the door I have second thoughts and end up putting something else on :)
     
  6. Know that feeling well Mike.
    Would only wear my pristine 100 to certain events.
    Wore it to a Mother's Day dinner at up scale steak house.
    Set it on a chair next to me & waitress dropped a spoon into lobster bisque that splashed it!
    Stuff happens!

    That's just R-E-S-P-E-C-T, as Aretha would say. I'm with you, Mike. Always tend to save the few vintages I have for "Special events; weather-permittting." Where can one replace vintage hats in my huge-ish size? I can have Art make another VS whenever I can afford one. Go-to lids must always be relatively easily replaced. So, keep our resident hatters happily hatting!!

    Very Nice Score

    [QUOTE=CaramelSmoothie

    Wow those are very nice.

    My wife likes that same style , it's called "cloche" or something similar to that and I would
    imagine that just like in all those pictures of the 1920's flappers , most of them have short hair
    so it's not a problem to wear hat's like that.

    Kodo's on your $20.00 score ,don't it make you feel warm and fuzzy inside !

    All the Best, Fashion Frank

    Thanks Hatter and Frank (that sounds like the name of a department store:p)

    The brown one has a bit of slight moth damage but I think I can work with it. I have already received the navy blue felt one in the first pic and it is in pristine condition. I have no idea why she sold them so cheap. Maybe she didn't realize the value? I dunno. Navy blue is my least favorite color because it does nothing for my skin tone, but these hats were so pretty and for good prices that I couldn't resist. I plan to wear the navy blue horsehair hat with a white cotton sundress this summer!

    That is all so very true, however, I do wear my hats as often as humanly possible, and as to being careful, as sad as this is to say, I do not wear any hats that are worth a "hoot" in bad weather, I do have my one slightly moth bitten thin ribbon for bad weather, and a few less expensive straw hats for the "melt season" of the heat of hot summer......my good hats I fear, will remain good as I baby them so much, (I think they actually know it, too)!

    I like the one in the middle with the embroidered stripes across the front , it also looks like it has some sort
    of jeweled clasp or something or other on the side, is that correct?

    As to why she sold them could be anybody's guess but it looks like that worked out to be to your advantage!
    Good luck to you with them and all the best ,Fashion Frank

    Not cheap enough! I was runner-up. :eusa_doh: Ah, well... if I'd wanted it that badly I'd have bid more. ;)

    Cheers,

    My girlfriend and I went to a nice restaurant on New Year's Eve this year. I was wearing a nice hat and with no place to hang it I set it on a vacant seat at our table. It was very crowded and every time a waiter would come by our table holding a tray above their head I would cringe. I was so nervous about something just like what you described happening that I couldn't enjoy the dinner!

    Borsalino ...by Bollman?

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    ...is that right? Isn't this one of the ones made by Bollman back when they had a N. American license for the name & made 'em in S-M-L-XL?

    That's my recollection, anyhow.
