Here’s a newer Borsalino I bought in liquidation. The crown is a generous gift 6 1/8” open and the brim is 2 3/4” wide before the curl. I really like the colors (the felt has green tones I’m not capturing today). I’m thinking of converting it to a fedora. I love homburgs, but I’d wear it more as a fedora. I have a flange that would be perfect, but I’m worried that the tensioning on the bound brim will keep me from re-flanging properly without removing the binding. Anyone have any advice?

I'm seeing a touch of green tint as well. Very nice.

GB Borsalino fu Lazzaro lobbia or homburg in brown. Brim at 6cm and the crown at 11cm at the center dent. This is not in pristine condition, because the sweatband is a replacement (is says Morreton Velrex on there) and it wasn't put in very well. I suspect the rather odd placement of the ribbon dates from back then as well. Still worth getting and maybe a candidate for future refurb to get it closer to its former glory.
The other Borsalino used placenames for their models, which helped to decipher the name on the label. I'm fairly certain it says "Darfo".

Adam homburg in dark green (!). Size 57 with the brim at 6cm and the crown at 11cm at the center dent. Nice shape and proportions to this one and the green is so dark that I have to (grudgingly :)) admit I like it. One cannot have enough homburgs. Many thanks go out to Brent @deadlyhandsome, who generously provided this one.
