    I always wanted a long hair, and I think this will be my first 6 x 4 (no dims posted). Least I’ve ever spent on a hat so far, two 6 packs from last weekend cost me more!

  2. Gotta love a hat that is less than the original price. Wish I had remembered to bid! Congrats on the win Ross.

    Cheers, Bob. I did think you’d be in on this one too, although it doesn’t hold a candle to your silver long hair beaut with LD liner. Love that lid

  4. Apparently shipping from auction houses is based on the quality of the hat.

    $11.95 shipping.

    A quote of $110.18 shipped in a double box (not sure if that was with the other three hats in the lot). I'm pushing back on that one. We'll see where it ends up. Told them to keep the other hats and use a single box. I'll even allow some brim curl (on opposite sides ... no creased corners please). Jeez ...

    Frustrating when that happens.
     
  6. Got it down to "only" $67.12 (for all four hats). Maybe I can get $10 each out of the other three and feel like I didn't get screwed too badly. The auction house does some shipping in house, but when I got picky on the packing they sent it to the 3rd party shipper. I think I'm being punished.

  7. I sometimes get I little irked when a previous owner wrote their name on a hat’s liner or sweatband. After seeing this hat I won’t complain anymore:

    Upon arrival and even before the much needed heavy brushing and a steaming… I think I can go ahead and declare this trio a victory.

    A little bit of unusual in each of them… but that one definitely a brand I’ve not seen and it caught my eye. It’s also the one that needs the least spiffing up. Maybe that one will go first. Coming soon to Post New Hats thread… tomorrow… weather permitting. ;)

  11. Needs a ribbon but otherwise looks nice. I like the wider binding too.

  13. I'd say so! Love the ribbon on the Lyon. I think there is more than one Astor around here. This is the liner on mine, but I can't swear that it is the same brand for sure.

    Good to see another with the Astor name on it. That one looks quite cool. I think I came across a couple others when I did my searching a few weeks back. But not many. That logo is different. Would like to find more on the brand.

    On second look… I think your blue Astor is the only other one I can find here. The size tag in yours looks familiar

  17. 7 1/4 Tonak supposedly NOS from the 1980s. Shipping from Ukraine so it might be a while.
