    Defeat or victory? I love the liner, and the condition is excellent, but I didn't really want this one due to my storing space limitations.
    It was offered at 350, and I offered 225 sort of to tell the seller he'd overpriced the hat.
    I guess he agreed, because he accepted my offer and I had to pay for it .[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  5. Good get! Very cool hat. Was that a BIN price or where it ended up? Trying to figure out the pricing on that old Mallory I recently obtained (and need to move on).

  7. Thanks Jared ... that helps (and hurts). Maybe I can put that "Whippet" liner in there first. :D

    I'll agree on the overpricing, but that's a beautiful hat, Max. Byer-Rolnick/Resistol dress hats seem to be rare as hen's teeth. I think you'll like it.

    Yes, I agree. Thanks, Jim. That makes me feel better.

    I agree with Jim. I find quite a few stingies, but not many Byer-Rolnick fedoras with wider brims. I bet the felt will be as good or better than its contemporaries.

    lol! Good thing I've always played fast and loose with the hat matching 'rules' anyways!

    Same. I've come around to preferring these older dress (and apparently "semi-dress") western hats. The "holy grail" hat is a black Boss Raw Edge with Fray sweat, but this one looked like a nice example of the style too. The seller's multiple quick creases are hopefully an indication of the felt quality.

    Thanks Mark. I actually kind of like the imprint this one has too, I think that's a tiger in the middle? Though who knows what "Our X Quality" is even supposed to mean.

    Well, if I ever get that No. 1 refurb from Bob @ Black Sheep this one might need a new home!

    Ha! I almost didn't bid in hopes that it would relisted at a lower price, but I wasn't sure if anyone was going to try and snipe it at the end. A Mallory may have at least a bit more brand recognition.

    Hey, Jared!
    A member from a Faceboog group I am in posted a screenshot of your hat and asked me to tell you the following:

    Max Tejeda-Nichols Well, tell him that he got a really super rare piece with some great provenance. That hat was made by the Bush Hat Company. It was owned by William Henry Bush who was a prominent Chicago business man and also quite famous rancher in Texas.

    Super hat Jared!
    Nothing like an old mystery black BRE style hat.
    The form is timeless and the sweatband is outstanding!
    Excellent score Jared, and your size!

    Muchas Gracias, Max! I did try to look up Bush Hat Co. but found even less information than I did on "The Superior Hat Co."
