OTHER THAN eBAY Hats: Victories, Defeats, Gripes & Items of Interest

After receiving a few hats with undisclosed and un-photographed moth damage, I'm trying to remember to specifically ask about it.

Me: "Do you have photos of the other side of the hat and under the brim? What is the extent of the moth damage? Thanks!"

Auction House: "I've added a photo to the lot of that side of the hat. It's just the one hole as seen in that photo."


Just the one hole? :oops:

They would have been better served to cut out the entire crown and call it “one hole.”

I was watching that Vita-Felt homburg. When I looked at it for a second time the new photo had been added…a BIG thank you, Bob!

Not a huge derby / bowler fan but when it’s an exposition medal 7 5/8…..

I told the seller where to look for the label end she said there was a red and white paper label with the size 7 5/8.

On arrival:

It’s heading back on Monday. If anyone wants it before then it’s $100 plus actual shipping to the contiguous US ($16 or less).
 
That's just sheer laziness. Everyone knows a derby should be carefully packed in a sturdy box with lots of padding after you step on it.

That’s how my Borsalino top hat (also from Goodwill) arrived. Pristine box, dented hat. Cinched up in a plastic bag and dropped into a box with one piece of packing paper.

I didn’t get dent pics as I was concerned with seeing if it would go back to the correct shape. It didn’t quite make it.
