    Thank you, Garret. I consider myself lucky you got distracted! I think I'll force myself to get used to this green for quite a while;)
    Still waiting for two of the others from the same seller. I wonder who got that last one, a rather gorgeous Borsalino Muflone.

    At the end of the restriction period we draw conclusions and something remains positive.
    A supply of hats, inventory is coming here these days. After being put in steam with the steam and properly combed, two "soft felts" enter the new hats in my collection.
    This is the first
    Barbisio 5.jpg
    Super Barbisio Extra Lusso made especially for Radiconcini - Rome
    Barbisio 4.jpg
    The size is a 56 cm, 4 1/2 US.
    Barbisio 2.jpg
    The felt is soft, indeed very soft and just a puff of wind to change its shape
    Barbisio 1.jpg
    The color of the felt is "Argento" and the consistency is very soft. The hat is new and never worn.
    Barbisio interno totale.jpg
    Barbisio interno Particolare.jpg
    These are the measures of this Italian classic: raw brims at 5.5 centimeters, the open crown is 13 centimeters and the black ribbon is 2 centimeters.

    A light hat and very suitable for this season in the Nordic countries, here is summer :)

    Second arrival in the restriction period and it is another soft and classic Italian felt
    Borsa BC 7.jpg
    Borsalino Qualità Superiore recent production, you notice it from the brand on the bow
    Borsa BC 1 bis.jpg
    The size is a 60 cm, 6 1/2 US.
    Borsa BC 2.jpg
    The felt is very soft, but keeps its shape well.
    Borsa BC 4.jpg
    Felt color is a number as it is used in modern Borsalino production. The color (a light beige, a little bit more warm then in the pictures) is splendid and the contrast copper ribbon gives a special touch to this Borsalino.
    Borsa BC interno totale.jpg The hat is new and never worn.
    Borsa BC interno particolare.jpg
    These are the measures of the Italian classic: raw brims at 7.5 centimeters, the open crown is 15 centimeters and the copper ribbon is 4.5 centimeters.
    Borsa BC 6.jpg
    A generous Borsalino in proportions with a special soft felt and fantastic color

    Stetson Twenty The Sovereign
    Dark Chocolate Brown
    4 3/4 Crown as bashed
    2 inch brim with Mode Edge (Cavanagh)
    Beautiful 2 inch burgundy ribbon

    When I saw this Stetson Twenty with it beautiful burgundy ribbon could be had for its original selling price of Twenty dollars I had to jump on it. The seller had indicated it was a “very small hat for child or woman” but his measurements sounded like it would work. I gave it a shot and it fits great. Fits.. feels and looks wonderful.... and did I mention with ribbon???

    As is often the case. Different lighting makes to color appear different... especially the ribbon

    Well you really can’t do better than that, the same color I put on my twenty although I opted for 7/8”. Well done!

    Waiting for other hats that are in postal limbo I thought I'd console myself with this one I saw on a Frech auction site.
    Hückel Superior Velour. Sold to me as a size 56, but in fact a size 59, with the raw edge brim at 6cm and the crown at 10,5cm at the center dent. Doesn't appear to have been worn much if at all. The felt of this pre-war hat is glorious.

    Nice finds, Daniele and good to have you back. I've had one of those modern Barbisio hats before, but I couldn't get it to work for me. It was just so soft that it was all over the place. I had to let that one go.

    Molto bello! Complimenti :)
    This is the same. The color is very interesting and the softness too. For lovers of soft felt ;)

    Brent, Daniele. It is a beauty. No much consolation for myself in the end, but still worth getting.

    If it was two or three sizes larger I’d be trying to talk you into sending it to California.

    Would have loved to find it to be your size, Brent, but finding one in this condition is rare enough, let alone one in a very large size.
