I need to submit an addendum...Just wore my new Borsalino in its first rain...opps! Afraid this hat will not be like this Lock at all. Got home the brim looked ruined..
I've been doing the hat upside down and pressing brim edge down on table top edge. About 30minutes of that has hopefully returned it to prerain condition. Now I hope the crown doesn't taper more than normal. Should hav photo'ed it...but I was in panic mode, lol.
Well, the new Borsa is a light fine looking hat...should be a fine good weather hat, };^)) I'll save this Lock & Co for the heavy lifting. Lol
I think I judged the new Borsalino too quickly...When I came in out of the rain, I snapped the brim back up in front and it looked wonky on each side. I flipped out and started pressing the brim edge down on a table top to straighten it and put the hat on a hat jack just to hold it til it dried...
Today just a tad loose...
I wore it today and it looked and performed admirably. And yesterday while it was pouring I walked by a store with a mirror window and it was anything but wonky while the brim was down.
So in all fairness I need to give this guy a reprieve and more testing..
I'll report back...};^))
