Barbisio Classic 8.jpg

Barbisio Classic, size 59 or 7 3/8 US
Barbisio Classic 7.jpg

The felt is the color "Soana" a valley that lies north of Biella and at the foot of the Gran Paradiso, near the ancient factory, now a residence, of the Barbisio in Sagliano Micca.

The hat has been used for years as a display in a Biella clothing store. It has reached the present day in splendid condition and perfectly preserved.

The felt is of medium consistency and an indefinable green color, the strip that adorns it is very accurate, made of felt and a thread stopped at the end by small spheres, intertwined with each other. An unimaginable workmanship on a hat today.

The measurements are as follows: the brim, finished with two invisible seems, at 6 cm., The crown at 11 cm. and the ribbon is about one and a half centimeters.

Barbisio Titan, size 59 or 7 3/8 US
umbria-barbisio-9-jpg.289922

The felt is the color "Umbria" region of Central Italy, this is one of the most beautiful colors among those that Barbisio has put into production over the years. It comes from the historic factory in Sagliano Micca.

Like his brother it has been used for years as a display in a Biella clothing store. It has a single small defect: the yellow cellulose protective cap has shattered, it is in excellent condition.

The felt is of medium texture, slightly thicker than its sibling in green. The hat has a classic Italian shape between the fifties and sixties with a simple and elegant line, at Barbisio they have been masters in simplifying the designs and making them fantastic in production with very accurate workmanship and finishes.

The measures are the following: the raw ones are at 6.5 cm., the crown at 11 cm. and the ribbon is about three centimeters.

I have had other hats in this color that have gone all over the world, this is the first in my size, fits perfectly, which remains in the collection :)

The size label that the seller said wasn’t there is there, and it’s a lot smaller than the measurements I was given. Bummer...great old hat.
Dang.. too bad about the size. That would have been a great hat on you!

Here’s one that was closer to my size. It was a long distance Craigslist find and the seller was willing to ship. It turned out to be a 7 1/2 rather than the 7 5/8 or 7 3/4 I was hoping for so it’s also on the block.

Dobbs Westward. 2 3/4” bound brim and 5 5/8” open crown.

The felt is so nice on this hat that it’s a temptation to size it up, but I’d rather it go to someone that will fit it unaltered.

Valentine the Hatter in confederate gray. 3 1/4” raw edge brim and 5 1/2” open crown. The felt is substantial but with a nice hand. It came with a CSA emblem pinned to the front, but that could start a riot these days...and I’m not into re-enactments so the badge came off.

The size tag is a bit odd. I measured the hat using my millinery sizing tool and came up with 7 3/8. I also noticed that the only marking on the sweatband was the name of the person who commissioned it. I suspect that the hat started life as a 7 1/8 and was at some point resized to a 7 3/8. Too bad they didn’t go to 7 5/8. :)

Way way cool!!
The felt looks in excellent condition.
Very rare indeed and probably an interesting history to go with it.
