    I am pretty sure I have a Boss Raw Edge that is not a raw edge.

    I’m not certain if all BRE were sold RE, I’m just observing that the hat in the auction actually has a very small bit of RE in the pics, and that the ribbon is on the underside of the brim only.

    I’d like to see your bound BRE though, with Bowen’s example I think we established it has been a mod (cut down and bound).

    I'm kinda' blown down what hat sold for, I was wayy underestimating selling price. Hope someone on the forum got it as I'd love to see better pictures! Meanwhile guy with his "dad" and "nephew" .. really disingenuous and strange behavior. Totally reminds me of some record collectors I've witnessed who'll go to the most embarrassing ends to potentially score. Hope you Cats are well, I sure have been seeing some incredible hats on the Lounge lately!

  5. ^^^^^ A sure sign that the collection might be out of control at this point. :D:D:D

  6. Anyone here interested in a $900 Beaver Brand OR style hat? The size isn’t given but how important is the size particularly when you’re only paying $900? And 1950s is really the same as 1980-2000 isn’t it?

    It seems as if there are more of these listings lately, doesn't it?

  8. Yep. I don’t mind these types of listings. What concerns me is there seems to be noticeably fewer vintage hats coming up for sale. The decline seems steep.

    Just picked up this Open Road on FB, was able to talk the seller down on price a little. They said it comes with original box and it was in near perfect unworn condition. I know it's not quite old enough to be one of the really sought after Stetsons, but I hope it's as nice as the seller says. Should arrive later this week.

    Good looking OR. I got my first real OR on FB. Sometimes there are some good deals if you know what you are looking for.

    Thank you gentlemen, tracking says it will be here Wednesday, for now we wait. Hopefully it was worth the $200 I paid for it.

  15. Thanks, Joe. Everyone was bidding on the Stetson 3X hats and this went overlooked.

    Happily for me (not so for Ross), the Stetson Boss Raw Edge Clear Nutria Ross he bought in Goodwill was too small for him, so he sold it to me for what it cost him.
    Now I wish I hadn't pushed the auction so high!:) Screenshot_20211203-120018_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20211203-120003_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20211203-115946_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20211203-115927_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20211203-115849_Gallery.jpg

  19. I saw this Stetson for sale online, but sadly it’s it’s too small for me. I really like the weave and the ventilation.
