    This green/beige Borsalino "Ninfea" is too wide for my head, so if you have the right size to wear it let me know with a PM

    Picked up this Stephen L Stetson Homburg on Ebay. A little brushing and steaming and it cleaned up pretty well. I decided to go with the open crown to give it that Bat Masterson Old West look.

    That looks great with the open crown! The brim looks good too. Good work, you wear it well.

    Echt Velour "Quality Velour Seal", 57cm, probably mid to late 1930s. Not sure what company made it but it came with another Velour from Friedrich Steinberg Hermann & Co. (STECO) Hat Factory Luckenwalde (East Germany) so they might be the source. The "Quality Velour Seal" felt color is a fantastic + unique Tobacco (Tabak) color with a great finish and hand. Also a interesting bow design and two tone liner.

    Picked this Stetson No. 1 Quality off Ebay last week. This hat reminded me of Bamaboots No. 1 that I admired so I had to pull the trigger.

    Thanks DD. I had to flatten the brim and put a Gus type crease in it, but I think it needs a little more work on the front of the brim. I need to pull the front down just a little. I don't usually like feathers but I think I will keep this one on the hat.

    Stratton Lawman. A gift from Ant ( @moontheloon ) that my wife stole as it fits her and not me. We both thank you Anthony!

    Stetson Promotional (no name non-catalogued) Royal DeLuxe open crown in Caribou. The felt is soft and exactly the same as my Premier Royal DeLuxe Stratoliners. Not sure if I'll keep the leather hat band or replace it with a grosgrain ribbon. The brown leather sweat is plain without so much as a crest. There also isn't anything under the sweat. This was a new in the box hat bought on eBay. No regrets so far. The box stated the brim is 3" but it's actually between 2 1/2 and 2 5/8.

    The first wear after I popped a diamond crease into it last night.

    Gorgeous looking felt, Daniele. And the most unusual bow I have ever seen.
