And one my size:
You and me both! Beautiful hat though.
Two Sools hats. Already on their way to the new owner
I’ve never liked how I looked in a derby
The stiff felt of the derby doesn’t always conform to my long oval head.
I already have a couple of derbies that I rarely wear.
Both of my derbies as black and if I ever were to get another it would be in a different color.
So of course I bought another black derby, but it had the original box so I couldn’t say no.
That one looks great, Brent. That may the only 5/8 bowler in existence!
Ps, Mike at Northwest has experience with custom bowlers other than black!
Thanks, Randy. Maybe I’ll wear this one?
Well, that's certainly a victory, Brent. They can be shaped somewhat to fit you without a conformateur and formillon. Plenty of steam and patience should do the trick.
Victory, I think. Two Echter Mayser hats. Unsure of their size, but worth taking a shot at.
That is a really cool Mallory. Very nice d’orsay curl
Nice.. not gonna go wrong there.
No idea what I just bought, and you can see how useful the seller’s photos were. The price was right so I took the chance.
It’s amazing how much a little effort into a sale post can make or break the return. Beyond the blurry photos and no size listed, seller also included ‘dirty’ in the title to help deter bidders… I got this dime thin Nutria for less than a Jackson, by far my cheapest lid to date.
About 15 minutes of effort into it and she’s ready to go. #54 block, 4 inch raw edge brim, and what looks to be 6 1/4 crown or possibly 6 1/2. Rare size 62cm, but fits perfectly on me so closer to a 7 5/8.
Has anyone seen a Resistol Beaver “135” before? New to me.
I have a “125”
Stetson Japan is continuing their streak of pretty cool exclusives. This time it's the open crown Custom V
Looks like this one will arrive tomorrow. I realized after it shipped the seller was in the same town as me (I think a first for me!) or I would have tried to arrange a pick up. Eh well.. it got a several day long tour of the county in the mean time. Looking forward to arrival.
Thanks Brent @deadlyhandsome for the heads up on this one.
Sellers photos… not sure I will improve much on these.
Online searching for auction sites, and came across these from some site in Alberta (province in western canada for those non canucks out there) not sure if this is the place to post links for any of you hat hunters out there
Resistol 4X Beaver 7 3/4. Western hat, and looks near new:
2 Fedoras: one is an tall boxy open crown Royal Stetson "Aquanized" Felt, welt or possible mode edge
the other is a black felt of undeterminable name. No sizes are listed.
A very very old (antique) beaver top hat, Wakefield of London make, and includes a leather bound travel case for the hat.
I suppose any local albertans or other Canadian hat hunters might find something of interest here, but it looks like the auction house takes international bidders as well.
