    Hahaha. It was haunting mine, too! The nightmare was that someone else might get it.

    I am going to ask Ignacio to make it one size bigger. Makes me nervous.

  3. I’m nervous for you! Still, we’ve learned to not underestimate Ignacio.

    Looks like a Borsalino sold by Willoughby.
    I have two other Willoughbies, and they are very high quality, so I trust that store.
    Besides, the hat measuring device marks 58.5 cm, so it's exactly my size.
    Does anyone know the name for the device? I forget.

  6. I’m not sure what the name of the tool is, but I have one that looks identical. I call it a milliners hat sizing tool. Mine always measures at least a half size small e.g., a true 61cm measures 60.5cm. The stiffer the felt and sweatband the bigger the discrepancy as the expanding rings can’t conform to the shape of the hat.

    I find them on ebay just searching for hat measuring tool. I've also seen them labeled as handheld millinery sizer and scissor type ring compass

  9. I know that we don’t normally put up live auctions, but I’d like someone here to get these:

    Thing is, I can't see "Stetson" anywhere on the hats only "Porter"

  13. Yep. You have to go with the little the auction house shows. It’s the shipping issues that keep me away.

    Nice catch, Max, but I don't think it's a Borsalino. German or Austrian make is my guess.

  19. This hat intrigues me almost enough to spend the $39 to get to hold it. It’s listed as a size 58, so I’m going to pass.

    Maybe comrade Steve @mayserwegener can can tell us something about it.
