  1. Dobbs Gamebird. Seller says 1960s, but I don’t think so:

    Doesn't look 60s. Looks early 50s latest.

  3. Agreed. Most sellers claim their hats are older than they are. They lowered the price twice and today I had to buy it…just wish it was my size.

  5. A wide brim Gamebird and a Rainbow have long been on my list. If this hat was my size I could scratch it off my list, but it’s not to be.

  7. This was a 2-for-1 deal that I couldn’t pass up.

  9. I don’t normally speculate on Panama hats. I don’t know enough about them, they are more fragile, and I’ve lost money in the past. However, this Panama looked too nice and the price was right AND it has a 4 1/2” brim! Maybe intended as a woman’s hat? Claimed size is 7 1/8…we’ll see.

    Sorry for the lousy and limited photos. They’re all the seller provided.

    Lots. Says Stratoliner, but the outside has an over welt brim and wide ribbon instead of a ribbon bound edge and a 3/8ths ribbon. The inside shows a 1940s logo, but the liner has plastic and the maple leaf logo meaning it is 50s. Also, is the liner pieced together from some paisley material and an original Stetson liner? There is a LOT that seems odd about that hat to me.
     

  12. Me too. I asked for more photos:

    I’m out of my depth.

    I just don't know what to say about this hat... I hope others chime in, here.

  14. It’s a nice looking hat, the felt looks to be soft, and felted brims were usually reserved for better hats. If it was my size I’d buy it, but I’m not spending $170 for a size 7 hat to satisfy my curiosity.

    I think you guys hit most of the points. I saw what looked like a felted edge and I thought maybe a Sovereign with an old Strat sweatband swapped out in it. Then there was that liner…. And that manufacturers tag…. Maybe something different all together.

    very nice hat whatever it is…. But not at that price

  17. It would be a great price if it was 5-6 sizes larger. My constant lament. :)

    In guitar-speak, I'd have to say it looks like a Partscaster for sure.

     
  20. I got this 7 1/4 for a good price from an auction house. The shipping was three times the cost of the hat! I need to stop doing this…at least for hats that aren’t my size. :)
