    I was going to post that Bob had one of these, but it looks like you know all about that.

    Great hat!

    Great hats, all around.

     
  9. Looks good Brent! Mine is blocked so that the vent holes are not in the same spot on the sides. Yours looks like it might be similar. Dang 1970s quality control...

    Project hat? I happened upon this Worth&Worth "ladies beach hat". It looked like an interesting find and I snagged it for $25. The straw and weave look wonderful so lets see if I can get this reblocked and shaped more to my liking. Monticristi? I don't know, what does that really mean.

    The weave of the hat in regards to how fine it is and it's woven in that region of Ecuador. That looks to be a fine candidate for a conversion if the straw is intact.

  12. That's part of the Eddie Bauer patented "Whirlwind Cooling" effect. No extra charge.

    My apologies, I was just making a sarcastic comment. Hatters throw around the term Montichristi and there really is no hard definition as to what fino, sub fino, etc, really means. Brent Blacks website states it is all very subjective. ;)

    Borsalino fiordo 1 R.jpg
    Borsalino Qualità Extra Superiore size 6 or 7 3/8 US true size
    Third hat of a lot, along with the Super Barbisio, and second Borsalino bought in the East Italy
    Borsalino fiordo 2 R.jpg
    It is a bit out of order so it was restored by Penumbra Hat - Netherlands
    Borsalino fiordo 3 R.jpg
    It is of the great family of "Misto" so a flecked felt in a very light tone of grey with a hint of black
    Borsalino fiordo 4 R.jpg
    Made in 1981 it has the following measurements: brim overwelt with two seams at 5 cm. Crown 10.5 cm. Felt is very malleable
    Borsalino fiordo interno R.jpg
    It was cleaned and stretched to return to the original size

    Borsalino fiordo etichetta carta R.jpg
    Made in Alessandria in the last years of the Borsalino historical factory, it is in excellent conditions and a little gem in the "Misto" family

    That's such a super looking hat, Brent. Love the colour and contrasting ribbon and bow. Very eye catching indeed.

    This one can truly be said to have travelled over half the globe.

    It started life in Australia, had a brief sojourn in Texas, and has now ended up in Denmark.

    I don't usually buy new hats, but when Ken put this one up for sale, I couldn't resist.

    Akubra Heritage Collection Federation Deluxe IV.

    I've never had a virgin hat before, but I really liked the idea of being able to create my own bash from scratch.

    The felt is still very stiff, so it still needs some more shaping work along with more steam. The brim especially. However, I'm quite pleased with the results so far.

    Thanks Ken for taking the extra time to have this shipped to Dk.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Great looking hat, Brent.


    I always knew you had a little outback in you, Steve!

    DH, these photos are really well done. It's nice to see anyone take this much care with what they're doing. Colors, light, setting - perfect. Cheers.
