    Nice job on the crease. And the contrasting ribbon looks sharp.

    1 Size too small for me, size 57 but i couldn't let this Brummel's go. Maybe i can steam it and stretch it to 58, who knows. It's a 9 euro gamble!! :D Pictures from the seller.... Screenshot_20211123-163836_Vinted.jpg Screenshot_20211123-162137_Vinted.jpg

    Borsalino "Rizzo". Yet another hat sold in a long gone, very fashionable in its day, gentleman's outfitters in Denmark.
    More to come in the Borsalino Brotherhood thread. 20211123_164349.jpg 20211123_164725.jpg 20211123_164736.jpg
     
  4. I have several hats that are special to me. I have custom hats that turned out perfect, I have vintage hats that I saw steered in to, and I have hats that I’ve rescued and put back into wearable condition. This hat my most special of them all. It’s my oldest hat. It has the best hand and general felt qualities of any of my hats. It’s in fantastic condition and fits perfectly. However, what makes it the most special to me is that it was a gift from Daniel @Just Daniel He didn’t even ask me to cover shipping. It’s not his size, but even then I know how hard it is to part with something so rare and so beautiful. I’ve never met Daniel and quite possibly never will, but he’s one of the several good friends I’ve made here on TFL. I’m humbled and amazed to be the recipient of such generosity and kindness.

    John B. Stetson Extra Light Weight complete with the 1900 Grand Prize exposition medals on the liner and on the sweatband. Sold by the Klafter Hat Co. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

    The open crown is just shy of six inches and the raw edge brim is 2 1/2 inches wide.

    The hat is obviously exceptional, but I can unequivocally say that I value my friends here more than any hat. Thank you, Daniel, for your generosity.

    That's exactly what I thought!

    Brent has been finding and shipping off nice hats that did not fit him (99.99% of them) to other people for so long, when this one came in right at 7 5/8 I had a hard time imagining it going to anyone else. Had it been 7 1/2 or lower, the debate might have been longer ;)

    ...It also helps that I have pretty much the exact same hat. I have been wearing mine for the last two days to get over it. ...And it might have taken me a rather long time to actually put the thing it the mail.

    Woohoo! I'm glad it made Brent so happy.

    Daniel

    That is one beautiful hat Brent. You are one of the good ones yourself and certainly deserving of some good hat karma to come your way. Good on Daniel for making this happen. Enjoy your soft, warm and fuzzies

    I just missed a black one a couple of weeks ago, but I think this is better.

    Thanks! This is right out of the box. The felt is soft and malleable enough that I could put it in a cattleman’s in a minute, but I prefer the pinch.

    The newer OR usually has the cattleman’s crease, but with the older ones it is not uncommon to see them creased differently.
