    I hadn't read the before posts! So the seller cancelled the sale? Damn, damn, damn!

  2. It was a bummer, but I’m healthy, employed, my family is safe, and I’m going to bed well-fed. Life is good and these little bumps in the road aren’t really important.
    I was hoping to have an Optimo that I could keep for myself. Maybe next time.

    Give'im hell, Brent! Write him a nasty note, and give him a bad review. At least he will know there are consequences

  5. Good to see you, Wayne. It’s got to be rough being the same size as Max! I’d love to get a Seal Velour of my own someday.

    Thank you, Mark! I wouldn't have known to buy it if Stefan and Garrett hadn't recommended it

    CCF846DE-8BA3-4D9F-8A59-A4D78BCF13F3.jpeg Early 60s wide brim 7 1/8 Knox “Americana” long hair. Very good condition. Could fit slightly small 7 1/4 heads. I’m not a fan of long hairs, but with this color and proportions, I’m tempted to keep it. No moth damage, and combs easily to a high sheen in sun light.
    4 3/4 crown at front pinch,
    2 3/4 brim and 2” unique ribbon.
    Sweatband opening: 7 15/16 x 6 1/4
    I might consider trading for a very nice, comparable 40/50s Adam, or Lee in 7 1/4, even other brands if they are exceptional.
    I traded one like this with Jim not long ago and we both came out happy.
    It’s definitely an eBay victory.

    I like it enough to wish it was a 7 3/8.

  17. That combo size tag with the metric and US sizing was not used in the 1960s. I’d guess a lot more recent.

  18. A painless defeat. Can anyone spot what’s wrong with my 7 5/8 hat?

    Been awhile RB.
    Good to see you are still around.
    The Moore’s Bulldog went to Alabama then to Missouri by the way.
    Be well.

    Nice one, Randall.



    An 8th here, an 8th there, what's a few 8ths between friends!

    Sorry Brent. I'm beginning to think CV19 is imparing people's ability to read and write.
