    Nice bash Steve, it really suits you. You could also go full on Indiana Jones with that baby. ;)

    I wish I had a full catalog of all the Supernatural styles out there. They have a really varied and unusal selection of hats.

    Magnificent hat and a great find, Steve. Looks like it takes on any shape with no effort.

    A truly splendid hat, Daniele. Great work by Fleur as usual. The colour is very attractive.

    Nice catch, Brent. I like the warm hue that one has.

    And another deserving beauty restored. Beautiful, Daniele. Misto Fiordo is a new one we haven't seen before.

    I've bought a few new hats when I just got started wearing hats. When I discovered vintage hats I never looked back. Fine work shaping that one, Steve.

    Thanks and same here, Stefan.

    Like you, and probably all of us on the FL, vintage is the way to go.

    Sometimes though, the new could well be the vintage of the future.

    This Borsalino had some problems in the felt and color. Fleur repounced it in a wonderful way, so the color now is vivid. What do you think it is? "Miele" or "Albino"

    Stefan, I was unsure it was on you data about Borsalino colors and types of hats, but I waited your comment.
    It is very light grey and the ribbon is "Marine" a very strange color:)

    More steaming and shaping, shaping and steaming has lead to this a little more Indiana Jones style.

    I'm probably more senior than junior Jones

    If I had to call it I would say it's "albino". I think the "Miele" is a deeper and warmer colour. Marine was on the list of colours "unseen". Because those colours came from the rack of windcords, I suspect these were mostly windcord and ribbon colours (and perhaps some felts).

    A few words to explain my purchases of used hats. Here in Italy it is difficult to find old or vintage quality hats in my size (60) so I look for lots, maybe in different sizes, where to fish what I like, small sizes remain to be sold. Very often the hats in the lot are of different quality and then the doubt arises about the possibility of restoring some particularly valuable hat. It was the case of this lot of three Borsalino in which each had some defect.
    Today the first one
    [​IMG]
    Borsalino Qualità Extra Extra Superiore Size is 5 1/2 or 7 1/4 US but, incredible for a Borsalino, it fit easily my 60 cm. head
    [​IMG]
    The hat is a "Light Weight" felt and the color is "Rutenio". Very light and malleable
    [​IMG]
    The ribbon is of matching color and with a particular bow
    [​IMG]
    The proportions are as follow: brim overwelted with a particular seam at 6 cm. Crown at 10.5 cm.
    [​IMG]
    The hat was fully cleaned and restitched brim welt, the restoration was made in Netherlands at Penumbra Hats
    [​IMG]
    It was made, probably in the late fifties, and sold in Italy
    A "new" Borsalino for mediterranean midseason
