    Cream "Sterling Beaver" from Barclay - has 30's proportions though I have doubts about it being that old. As far as I know we don't have a Barclay thread. May need to remedy that!

    Five “Super M. D. Barbisio Gentleman” hats. Two in size 61, two in size 62, and one in size 63! Three have bound brims and two are raw edge. They have approximate dimensions of 5 3/8” open crowns and 2 1/4” wide brims.

    The sweatbands are comfortable and serviceable, but they all have cosmetic issues. I’ll keep one, maybe two, and put the others up for sale.

    The felt isn’t bad at all, but the small proportions and tapered crowns are not my favorite.

    Here’s one if the Barbisio Forest Green hats on a minimally tapered block. By Monday I’ll know how it turns out. I’ll definitely lose some crown height (height it could ill afford to lose), but it looks like it will turn out alright. This 7 1/2 block is perfect for this type of reblocking where the hat isn’t stripped and the sweat is hardly touched. Thanks again Bowen!

    This hat is an enigma, but it is also an example of the work of an Italian hatter, Alfonso Tenisci, of the past
    Tenisci 1.jpg It is probable the client had an old homburg and wanted to make it more current, so the hatter has redesigned the brim, but it is only a hypothesis. The felt is magnificent and carries the original manufacturer's paper label. It is written by hand, so it is from before the Second World War
    Tenisci etichetta 2.jpg
    The source from which the original hat comes, could be Monza, the capital of hats at that time, or Cappellificio Cervo
    Tenisci 2.jpg
    It comes from Milan and this is in the thanks that Stefano Anzani - Cappelleria Melegari mentions in his presentation "A thought and a thank you go to all the master hatters from whom I learned this ancient profession. In particular to Franco De Toffoli, hat maker from Novate Milanese, who for a long time unfortunately is no longer with us, to the master hatter Alfonso Tenisci from whom I did real apprenticeship in his workshop workshop in Via Vitruvio in Milan, to the dear Gianni Sala, the historic hatter from Monza, for his help and equipment necessary passatami, thanks also to my friend Sergio Fiori for the hat “he has it in his blood”, to the young hatter Luca Mauri, to the great master Malegori of Monza an authentic “mad hatter” and to the masters Pino, Giorgio and Marco Vimercati , last bastions of an "endangered" world”

    The hat is finished inside with a "Brasiliano" lining which is a brand of hats, often wrongly considered one of the Borsalino shadow brands, so it is not and the sweatband is signed by Alfonso Tenisci

    The dimensions of the hat are as follows: the brim is 6 cm. the crown 11.5 cm at the lowest point and the ribbon is 4.5 cm
    Tenisci 4.jpg
    The enigma is also the real size, considered to have been corrected in pen on the label, unfortunately for me it is a 56 cm.
    I let the photographs speak for the hat.
    It is "un Signor Cappello" of an Italian hatter of the heyday

    Well, not a new hat (kinda new though), but how about a new feather, LOL.

    My Parrot Merlin is molting, and my Granddaughter Lylah found this feather on the floor and said ‘Look Papa, this feather would match your new blue hat’, so I had to put it on the Portis.

    Thanks Randy, Joe, Tim for your kind words
    It is the first time I see a hat "worked" by an Italian hatter who signs the work. The active hatters in Milan and Monza were among the most long-lived of the Italian panorama in the production of hats, both industrial and artisan, some, it seems, are still active. I hope to meet some of their hats again
