I confess that I have let go of a lot of bowler hats in this period, I hope not to sadden FL friends in love with this hat.

Some were interesting, but the often small size or the exaggerated price kept me away from them.

This bowler hat has two features that attracted me.
It is a G.B. Borsalino fu Lazzaro and has a pleated bow that makes it less usual than others

Second reason it has a quite unusual size 5 1/2 which is equivalent to a 58 cm.
GB Borsalino bombetta 58 etichetta carta.jpg
It is well preserved and is, unlike many of its companions, light.

These are the measures, the curled brims reach 5 cm ; the crown is 13 cm. and the ribbon measures 3 centimeters.

There are some small flaws such as a slight deformation of the anterior brim visible in the photograph. A very slight trace of dust on the edge of the brims.

Many of you know that I don't have bowler hats in my collection, so anyone interested should write to me privatelyGB Borsalino bombetta 58 3.jpg
It's not like I find such pearls for medium-sized heads every day ;-)

It's a beautiful example and a great find, Daniele. A showcase of the craftmanship of the other Borsalino.
