J, the hat market is a crazy place. Throughout the years I've been buying hats online, I think I've bought one U S made hat out of Canada and I've never owned a Canadian made hat of any sort. My last two have come from Canada. Two different sellers. One made here and one made there. Both great hats but the one your countrymen made is a hat of the highest order. JMO. I am partial to a 7X CB. Thanks for putting up with me poking at you.
That is an example of Barbisio at its best, Daniele. Just look at that crown: fabulous.View attachment 184447
Sometimes, rarely, even some old hat is my size

The interest for this Barbisio is the fact that inside the sweat band there is stamped the origin of the skin: Paris - France and a date that I cannot decipher the month and day, but the year is 1939 (for a clear picture I have to use professional equipment)

A eighty years old hat from Sagliano Micca will worth some thrilling in delivery
LOVE THAT HAT! I saw it just a little too late........New in, reproduction Vintage Whippet. Sold as a Matt Deckard design for the Japanese market.
3 inch brim, 6 inch open crown with pretty soft and pliant felt, though not as fine as my 100% beaver Excellent Quality New York LE.
I like the bold styling, and bound brim.

Love it!! Congrats Greg.It only took 21 days but this one finely made it. Dusty and dirty but no real issues. Vacuumed, steamed, sponged and brushed it opened up to a 6" crown with a 3" brim. Simple 3 cord ribbon with short tailing ends. I tried to show the brim edge where, to me, this brim was trimmed with scissors and not one of @humanshoes rounding jacks. Every couple of inches there is a slight scallop to the edge. I thought I was seeing things while I was ironing it out but I called on the kid for assistance and she agreed it was wavy gravy. Makes me like it even more . Slight evidence left of a cellophane tip protector with the wine colored liner. No price visible on the small white sales tag but the printed words "ceiling price" are visible at the top of it. Now to shape it. More info in the Rolnick thread.

Very nice Randy.Simple is simply the best, Part II.
New to me Dobbs Cross Country. Unlined, shallow teardrop crease, no pinch, super light weight, brown on brown. I would compare the felt to my 50's OR and Strat, it is really amazing and so light I hardly know I have it on.
