    Yes, vintage but I'm not sure from what era. Might be a tourist hat as well. The hat is so stiff it's hard to make a judgment on felt quality. I haven't looked at it in some time.

    Stefan enabled the acquisition of this one, my second Knox Homburg. Colour wise, a slightly more lighter brown than the one I bought from Brent earlier this year, and a slightly more lighter/thinner felt too, hence the pinches. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Very Cool !! I think I enjoy the history of the hat company or store as much as the hats themselves ! And any provenance on a particular hat is the icing on the cake.

    Great job with that one !!

    You are correct. I’ve seen speculation on line but nothing definitive. The guess of rabbit came from the JJ hatter. I asked and he indicated that the feel and hand was likely rabbit.

    Not a bad looking lid, Bob.

    We used to have a member here - I think his name is Jeff - who worked at Del Monico and left to rep Hatco. Even he admitted he had no idea. Although I believe the consensus is Excellent Quality is all beaver.

    How did your trip to Levines work out? I usually end up there a couple of time a year myself.......

    That's the nice thing about these unknown brands; you're able to get them cheap and sometimes you're in for a very pleasant surprise. Good get, Tim.

    Thank you, Steve. It was a lucky find, for sure.

    I think you've gone the right way, Max. I've handled a few but none of them came close to a decent quality vintage hat.

    Looks good on you, Steve. Being a size larger than my own and of substantial proportions I had a difficult time making it work for me (and it sat on my ear, which I hate).

    It's not exactly new, because I've modified the hat since I originally posted it. Bought it for $75 from my neighbor.

    The original thin leather hatband just wasn't right for my personal taste.

    Here's my converted Stetson Roadster with a 1 inch ribbon hat band.

    I really like the look of this hat now.

    I am watching Love At First Bite now. The full movie is on Youtube! And it is even funnier than I remembered. Classic scenes!
    The Romanian communists evict Count Dracula from his Transylvanian castle to turn it into a training center for Nadia Comaneci, so he is forced to emigrate to America. His coffin is sent to the wrong address in New York, and then...
    Really, really funny movie. For free on Youtube

    I swore to myself that I was going to get away from vintage hats to concentrate on some of the modern versions of the greats. Unfortunately for me, I was browsing Etsy and found a Grey Dobbs Rainbow at a great price.

    I enjoy embroidered liners and this one is a very nice looking liner.

    I'll post pictures when I get it.
