    Not an Ebay hat, but a little victory anyway (and hat related). Managed to score this box of hat clips. Eccles seems to be a bit too generic to pin it to any specific shop.

    Lambournes of Birmingham has been around since 1886 and made all sorts of small fashion accessories.

    A box of these has shown up here before (see: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/thr...-items-of-interest.54417/page-27#post-2059207) , but they're not common to say the least.

    So I just received this very nice Lee hat, and the felt is super soft. But the bound edge has come loose in the front and on the side. This was not described in the listing, but its such a great hat that I am going to keep it. Anyone know if a loosened bound edge can be repaired?

  18. I guess this one can be filed under a gripe: I wonder what it was like in into original condition. The owner was surely under the influence of something when he cut off the Mode Edge and trimmed the brim to 1 7/8 inches.

    Sadly that happened in the 60s when guys took older hats to the hat store and told them to update the look to the 60s stingy style. I had a wonderful Whippet from the early 40s that some dope 60's-ized.
