    It pains me to sell these hats as they are so terrific, but they are just a touch too snug now that I've grown my hair longer. They all fit the same size, which is somewhere between a 7 5/8 and 7 3/4. I would say they are a 7 11/16 or a 61.5.

    Borsalino Classico fur felt in brown. This is very similar to their classic Como model, but was made specifically for JJ Hatters in NYC. I bought this from the store in Manhattan about 3 years ago. Very soft, pliable felt, typical of the better modern Borsalinos. This was originally tagged a 64, but it's definitely more of an actual 61.5.
    Brim = 2 1/2"
    Crown = 5"
    $175 shipped conus

    Maybe I could bump my forehead so that Optimo (or the others) would fit.

    Someone is going to score!

    Not to worry you but you could keep them in the event that you start to bald and you may then shrink to fit. My fear is with my collection and my thinning pate that soon my hats will all be too big for me.

    I wonder if I could shrink that VS to a 7 1/2, It sure is nice. I could wear that to the beach!

    with a foam strip insert you should be able to make it fit a 7 1/2 without it looking clownish.

    My Brother wears a 7 5/8 and is a bit long oval. So far, he has only been wearing straw and panama hats, and none of the hats that I have from Daniel, would fit him. So I am going to bite on the Art Fawcett hat...if it is still up for sale. Sending you a PM.
