    Well, I kind of hope you are right, B. A lot cheaper that way.

  2. Congrats on negotiating a deal on that one Brent! I bet it was pretty exciting when you first saw that it was your size.

    Fantastic, Brent. What a great find! Does the sweatband size tag say 3/4 or 7 3/4? I'm guessing mid to late 50s based on the size tag...

    The seller did not show any photos of the “public” size tag. I’m pretty sure it’s the fraction only and not the mixed number.

    Awesome!

    Love the felt on those 20s!

    eBay Victory. Longley Low and Anderson. My black hat requirements just went down quite a notch with this one.

    I am totally (and pleasantly) shocked this one didn’t hit the sky on price!

    The seller says he is selling his 40-year private collection, I encouraged him to post some here on The Lounge. :)

    Please tell me how the felt is on that one, Daniel. In some pics it looks very rough, and I want to know if I am right.

    It doesn't look like a great hat, but it was on my Stetson list...

    Cool. I have not seen ads for these, a great find!

     
  13. For a while Akubra made Open Roads for Stetson under contract. They show up occasionally & all I have seen have been 3X. When the contract expired Akubra started making the CD. They may have overlapped for a time; not sure. They apparently made the BOTP under contract also. The first BOTP I have ever seen showed up just recently. Also a 3X.

    All badged as Stetsons.

    Yes I read about this. I’ve been considering an Akubra CD purchase. This one looked like a nice deep brown and would have been a good edition to the OR collection so I’m kicking myself. Oh well I’m in it for the long haul anyway.

    Another hat from Adrián, aka miamibruno.
    Borsalino Qualita Suprema.
    Is this really Borsalino's Supreme Quality, Stefan @steur? What year was it made about, anyone?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I had that one in my sights, but didn't bid in the end because of the size. Congrats, Doug; looks like a great one.

    Great catch, Max. I'd rate their extra extra superiore the best, but that's because it's the lightest (and I like that). Other than that it's hard to tell the distinction between their quality designations. This one is mid- to late fifties.

    I've been outbid on the 1940s Aunt Jemima Pancakes print ad.
    Rich Klansmen, I'm thinking.
