    A little update on Croydon. Thanks to a little detective work by @DaveProc

    looks like Croydon May have been a popular priced offering for sale at dept and clothing stores. These ads have Croydon hats priced at $2.95

    And this salesman ad for the manufacturer of Croydon hats as GNY Hat Co located at 750 Broadway NYC. Who else was located at 750 Broadway.... Stetson

    Good on the detective word.

    Any update on the price of the Durocs?

    I visited Osaka yesterday, feeling naked without a hat and ended the day with this Japan-made Knox raffia.

    Our Panama hats arrived today.
    3415C278-C27E-4CB5-85B5-1AC31B05975C.jpeg I’m pretty happy with mine, though there’s no way it’s a true size 60. The Knox is a 59, but it’s significantly bigger than the new Panama. My head measures something like 58.7. Some 59s are a good fit (like the Knox) but lots tend to be too small. All my size 60s up until today have been slightly big, but this one’s only just big enough. Truly, any smaller and I’d be up in arms, but it turns out that it’s a snug & comfy fit.

    My wife is less happy with hers. It’s a softer finish and everything about it seems to have been done with less care and attention to detail than mine. The brim is quite bumpy (though not very clear in the photo).

    The sweat band is looser.

    and the ribbon is also looser.

    Is this just a fact of life with a softer Panama?

    Two beautiful Montecristis. The band on yours is snazzy as hell.

    “Snazzy”. Now there’s a word I haven’t heard in a while. Growing up in the ‘70s & ‘80s in New Zealand, we also said “gunny”!

    Dobbs Fifteen Homburg

    99BEBDF4-53F4-4D2C-BB90-3BAA739F01CD.jpeg

    Dobbs Fifteen Homburg
    Light Grey Felt
    5 inch crown with center dent (5 5/8 open)
    2 inch black grosgrain ribbon
    2 1/4 brim to curl with 1/2 inch contrasting grosgrain binding
    1 7/8 soft brown sweatband
    Oil skin liner tip

    This one arrived a few weeks back. Finally had the chance to post it. Beautiful light grey Dobbs Homburg Fifteen. Fairly soft crown allows shaping as desired... but easily pops right back to its preferred center dent On the 5 inch crown as bashed (manufacturing tag indicated 5 5/8 I’m guessing when open) The brim is quite nice at 2 1/4 to the curl and features a great looking contrasting grosgrain edge. The sweatband is soft and supple. There are a few moth nibbles and one small thread loose on the Brim binding... can prob be clipped . But nothing too bad at all. All this one needed was a very light brushing to get off some dust mostly on the ribbon. The manufacturing tag points to 1950s. I’m guessing early 50s with the oilskin liner tip... I’m sure I’ll be corrected :) This grey homburg specifically checked one of my boxes As being just that and I’m really happy with it.

    @JC Montecristi Hat, maybe you can tell me if the issues with my wife’s hat are normal for a softer Montecristi.

    were these hats sold to you as montecristi hats or hats sold by a company with montecristi in their company name?

    Sold by MontEcuador. They sell both Cuenca and Montecristi. Mine was a grade 13-14 but my wife’s had no grade specified. But both were Montecristi.

    Got a tip, took a trip, up I 65 N a ways. Where I met a man, with hat in hand, such as I haven’t held in my days. I gave him cash, and left in a flash, lest he realize what he’d just given away. From TN to AL, this ones here to stay.

    Actually, this one came from a really nice guy I met in Franklin, TN who is prepping for a move back to MA in August.
