    Great one, Max! I’d say it’s more of a Carlsbad. All of the research I’ve found on Tom Mix hats points to 7.5x5 bound brim. 7x4 raw edge with curl is typically identified as Carlsbad. A beaut, love the frayed bow.

    Thank you, Brent. It had stuck in my mind. I am glad that vintage-haberdashers relisted it. BTW, I wonder how much Dinerman is involved with it now. It used to be that they answered questions promptly and cordially. Now it takes several messages to get a curt response three days later, if at all

  7. I know Spencer has been quite busy trying to open a new storefront ... perhaps that was the issue.

    This is lovely, Max, congrats!
    You certainly didn't ask but what about re-blocking and putting a more dress bash on it?
    I know however you wear hat it'll be great.

  9. By 1930 or so in his public appearances Tom Mix was starting to downsize his hat dimensions.

    Beautiful breastplate & martingale, 1932.

    This looks like the same style hat:

    I was referring to 20-30s catalog listings for labeled Tom Mix Stetsons, they always seem to hover around 7.5 x 5/5.5 with 1 3/4 ribbon.

    Oh, no, I am not going to change the bash. I love it as-is!

    Sellers have to do what they can to get attention, but sometimes....at least we can get a little laugh:

    “Vintage NEW 1940s LEE Whippet Beaver 20 DELUXE”

    Well, at least two parts are true!

    5EDA7014-4E7F-4723-9461-B22998998862.jpeg Got this clean 50s Stetson Custom V about two weeks ago.
    Heathered tan and brown felt. She’s a real beaut!
    Don’t know what the V stands for.
    Has a cool, unique 1 1/4” burlap style hat band having flecks of color woven throughout.
    2 1/2” overwelt brim with 3 rows of decorative stitching. F679ABD1-30BD-43F6-9ED8-420B67146310.jpeg
    Oh how I wish this one fit me!
    Been hoping to find a heathered fedora and doubt there could be many more finer examples than this one, especially one of the rare V’s.
    If I was a true collector I’d keep it, but only like to keep those that I can wear comfortably. Alas, She’ll be put back up on the Bay soon.
    Nevertheless, I’m happy to have owned this great lid for a few weeks. CC572380-E01E-44EB-BE21-BFC049C56076.jpeg ACEC7096-9B79-4A87-AD95-DFAFF6934AE8.jpeg 108CFC40-BD66-424D-AC72-17B82AB30101.jpeg
