    There used to be some dedicated Adam collectors on the Lounge. They showed nice designs but budget construction as befit their price point in the market. Adam operated retail stores and marketed heavily in their heyday. They had quite a few shops in the NYC area if I remember correctly. I've admired some of the hats posted in years past but have never bid on or purchased one.

    The mid ribbon with fancy pleat and bow is really great. And the sweatband, a weak spot on many Adam vintage hats, seems to be perfectly serviceable. A good get and good look for you.

    Thanks again Alan. I have enjoyed the Adam’s that have come my way so far… but this one by far the most. I need to get around to posting them in the Adam Alley.

    As to their marketing… in a bit of a cross over for me. While searching for items related to wrestler Nature Boy Buddy Rogers for his tribute site and pages, I came across advertisements for his matches that were sponsored by Adam hats… or tickets available at Adam hats.

    I seem to remember reading that they sponsored boxing matches as well.

    100% Wool hat from N33 (www nthirtythree.com) Normaly i'm not the biggest fan of woolhats, but this one is actually quite nice. Great colour "cloud grey" and good proportions. This model is called "Tilby". Only 1 thing negative is that the bow is always on the right side (their trademark). But overall a nice hat and very comfortable to wear.

    Campaign Hat from the Army Store Tucson. The felt actually has a better hand than most of my modern hats. The Army Store was open from the early 1920s until the mid 1950s . No tags, no makers name on sweat. Sweatband is very soft and supple name on sweat. Sweatband is very soft and supple

  7. Love the color, Marcel. The bow on the right is an unusual choice as traditionally that has been a mark of a woman’s hat. It doesn’t take anything away from the hat, it’s just odd that they chose that as a “trademark.”

    I think I would always try to put it on backwards. Then again I could always reverse the crease and wear it front-to-back. :)

    Yes, i don't understand it either.
    I asked them and that was the answer and on their instagram page all the men wear it on the right side. Strange for me too...

    Way to go, Brent! Your patience and persistence has been duly rewarded, especially with the matching box to boot.


    This isn't just an E-Vent, Joe. This Adam is the Main Event. Awesome get!

    Bought this Borsalino today for 15 euro. According to the seller it's dated from the 60's.

    Thank you Jonathan! I do find it amusing that old Adam has a name that somehow sounds like something in the internet age.

    If it was the I-Vent, you could call it your Adam’s apple!
