    Doesn't look too wide on you at all, Randy. Tame that bronco, buddy.

    Super look you've turned that one into, Brent. Love the blue tones in the grey.

    A fantastic, gorgeous hat, Daniele. And what interesting hat history it reveals. Congratulations.

    Thanks for the kind words on the hat, Steve. I'm usually indifferent to hat boxes because, while I enjoy them, they present their own set of problems. Some you just want to have while others are just a box to take up space. This one got my attention, though. Don't remember another with the same graphics. I probably just haven't seen one yet. It's a nice paper print applied over a cardboard box. Very simple but the graphics have it all and have remained in good shape. Here you go.

    Modern Biltmore Canadian Peluche in Champagne. Nice hat, check out the $225.00 price tag. I didn't pay that BTW!

    These longhairs are addictive! Yours looks great.

    Thanks for sharing the box photos, Greg. Must be the Dickensian Englishman in me, but that is one great box.

    I've seen them before, but few and far between. And normally in not such good shape. Yours is especially vibrant. I think this design is fairly old, but can't pinpoint anything.

    Thanks, Jim. I keep hoping some folks with knowledge of these Canadian hats can weigh in on the era.

    I see you turned the sweat out for the label pic but did you turn it all the way out? I recall something about the Canadian ones stamping the date on the inside sometimes. I could be wrong.

    I remembered something like that as well but not this one. Turned it all the way around.

    Or if there's a note in there saying, "I'm sorry," it's Canadian. Or if there are poutine stains on the brim.

    Come to think of it, that stain under the brim may be poutine. Gas bath didn't cut it.

    It’s most certainly maple syrup, and the box is so well preserved because it was obviously kept in an igloo. Silly Americans..

    Another Bowler to the collection and another Manchester hat, too.

    I believe this one to be inter-war years: closer to WWI than WWII in my opinion, so late teens or early to mid twenties.

    I don't believe Hartley & Boedeker survived after WWII, so I'm very pleased with this find.

    It's in need of a bit of a clean. Any suggestions would be appreciated.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
