    Oh? Do you still have it, Bob? Would you sell it?

    I just took one to Ignacio that is like that. So soft it won't keep its shape. I was even tempted to put Aquanet hairspray on it, like Bowen @AbbaDatDeHat does, but Ignacio said I would've ruined the felt, because it is velour. He says that he puts a mixture of "goma" (gum?) and water on the inside, not the outside. I will report on that when I get it back

    Well, the Year 2 resolution has so far been a fail. Incoming:

    Nice! A wide brim Disney (not Mr. Disney) is one of my bucket list hats.

    Max, that crown looks paper thin and luxuriously soft. Beautiful Homburg!

    It does look old. I don’t know about the brand, but it does look pre-war.

    Thought that would go your way. Great catch, Max. Curious to see once it arrives what label lurks underneath that sweat.
    The Disney is fabulous as well.

    I await the arrival of this interesting piece.

    Henry Roelofs company. Size 7

    I am very curious to see this one. Seller claims early 1900’s. The newspaper shoved in the liner is Denver post from 1904. I believe Roelof merged with Guyer around 1914. Though there were some hats with both names made in years later.

    It’s Quite misshapen and showing age... but definitely worth taking a flyer on this one for the curiosity factor.

    Seller says size 7. 3inch brim. 4 1/2 crown. 1in ribbon.

    Best,

    Ignacio is going to love working on those, Max. You really have taken a shine to the velour hats lately.

    Fabulous find! I'm very curious to see how it cleans up with some brushing and steaming.

    Well, it's Garrett's fault, Stefan. I had been looking for pre-WWII Austrian velour for a looong time, and a golden hat, too, and here he comes and starts selling them by the bunch.
    And on top of that, they have been restored by BSHW, and with new sweatbands and liners, so I can resize them without guilt.

    I blame Steve - back in 2008-09 he started this whole Pre-war velour / longhair addiction.
