    Often on the Italian market of antique or vintage hats Borsalinos appear that have some quirks in their shape, color or construction. Most are "children of fashion" or of certain needs of some large retailer.
    BB 3.jpg I give up 99% of the cases because they often have no appeal. When I saw this I awoke from the torpor of the Borsalino oddities.
    BB 5.jpg The shape is curious: the crown is a soft bowler hat, so the fit is wider than the rigid ones, the brims are straight and edged, instead of being curled.
    BB 6.jpg
    Therefore it is a "special hat", probably ordered for a ceremony where the owner wanted to show off something unusual, or it was a shape offered on the market a few years ago.

    The hat is new and never worn except by me to show you.
    BB 2.jpg
    The hat is tagged 59 cm. and its measures are 20.5x16.5 which correspond to a 59 cm wide size.
    The measurements of this beauty are: flat edged and flat at 5.5cm, the ribbon is 4cm high. and the crown at its lowest point is 11.5 cm.

    Suitable for the mundane occasions of the upcoming holidays, to have it send me a message.

    Thanks guys, I couldn't help messing with it a little last night. I cleaned up the center dent and added a bit of a pinch up front. No pictures yet but I think it helped. :)

    The older the Barbisio, the better the hit.

    Echter Mayser "Spezial", 59 cm possibly mid 1950s. The Black Felt has a great Finish and easily dry creases. Classic Form with very stylish Bow design which Mayser used often with their Homburgs in this time period.

    Open Crown

    [​IMG]

    The hat was severally crushed at the brim edge during shipping. The box was pulverized (most likely by USPS) and had to be wrapped in shrink wrap by USPS. I thought it was lost but arrived yesterday with no status update from USPS since early September.

    The photos were taken after popping the crown out so originally more crushed.
