    A fellow landsman? Or you just like the style (black, wide-brimmed, made for the religious market)? ;-)

    They are all waiting to be shipped to a hatter for conversion into more traditional fedoras. I’m having one made into an Alessandria/Open Road thin ribbon. These hats are of good quality and can be found at attractive prices on the used market.

    Beyond eBay, and I guess local shops, where does one find used hats? I wear a U.S. size 7 & 1/2 (head is 59.7 cm; 23 & 1/2 inches), I can rarely find anything in my size that is still in decent enough nick.

    eBay is the best. They don’t come up every day, but they can be found if you look long enough. The larger sizes in any vintage style are hard to find. Since I’m going to convert them into more traditional fedoras and don’t want the really wide brims, I can reblock them up to my size at the expense of brim width.

    Hello, mein Josh, and welcome to the Lounge!
    Depending on your location, you may have some (scant) luck in estate sales, re-sale or consignment shops, etc. It takes time and perseverance, though, especially considering your size.
    Remember, you’re supposed to wear ‘em like your Rebbe! (Nu?!)

    Zie Gezundt, man!!
