    This is a recent acquisition from a local estate auction but is too large to fit my head. As such, I am currently entertaining trade offers only at this time. If a suitable trade is not proffered and agreed to this listing will be opened up for sale at some time on Sunday, 09/01/19.

    EDIT 20190901: This listing is now open for sale. I am asking $125 USD shipped to contiguous U.S. I am willing to ship to other locations but we will need to discuss shipping costs. Please PM if interested.

    And now the hat, a Boegel's Milan in size 7-1/2:

    Specs:
    Two-tone natural and gray Milan
    Pleated grayish-purple pug with black and white flecks
    2-1/2" Brim
    4" Crown at the front as creased, rising to 4.5" in the middle
    5.4oz Weight
    Overall condition is excellent. The flexible Milan could be worn brim up or down, though the natural shaping of the brim seems to be better down. I have tried to identify a few very minor flaws as evidenced in the last three pictures. All in all this is a truly wonderful hat. I would keep and wear this proudly if it were my size.

    Boegel's is a fine men's store still in business today after more than hundred years. Haberdasheries are becoming fewer and far between so here is your chance to own a great and unique piece of history.

    There is still time to enjoy summer straw hats, so don't get bageled on this Boegel's!

    Uhh, yeah, that would be good info to know. Sorry for the omission.

    Size 7-1/4 or 7-3/8. My preference would be 50s or earlier felt fedora with a minimum 2.5" brim. Not limited to this, but definitely strong preference.

    Thank you for your interest, but I am still only receiving trade offers at the present time. I understand that it is 09/01 in Sydney but it is a little after 9p 08/31 in the eastern U.S. My apologies for not clarifying the baseline time zone.

    This hat will be opened up for sale within the next 2:45 to 26:45 hours if no trade is accepted before then. Other people have expressed an interest in this hat, so to be fair to all I cannot give preferential treatment to anyone who has already contacted me regarding sale of the hat. Only after this listing has a $USD amount shown will there be exclusivity given to the first person to contact me.

    Cheers

    I’m surprised this is still here. If it was a size larger I’d be all over it.
