A quick vacuum, steam and brush brought it back to life.
WOW!! See this thread for more info:
Nice Garrett... that was a good swoop in for a killer hat.
I took a risk at $24 on what's either a 7 US or a 7 Punti early 20th century Borsalino. It appears to be Punti. Out of Romania, and it appears to have been sold there originally, too.
When you have a chance, it would be great to add this one to the Borsalino Brotherhood thread.
I will once I see if it fits! If it doesn't, there's no point in keeping it....I'll know in a month at the latest. Thank you for the help, by the way. You have a fantastic collection and I'm grateful you could share your knowledge
1938 Portis "Hunter"
A recent acquisition from @buler (thanks, Bill). Originally posted in the Portis thread 10 years ago here is a much belated encore:
Glad it's seeing the light of day. One of my early hat purchases. Enjoy!
Circa 1922-1927 Dobbs Longhair. Unfortunately, moths tortured this old beauty. Still, a great specimen and certainly among the oldest soft felt Dobbs we've seen on the lounge.
Per Brad Bowers' research:
"Here is a liner style that was first used in 1922, and may have been used into the 1930s. It's not as common. Note that in the trademark filing and the first physical example, on each side of scrolling banner the addresses 620 (on the left) and 244 (on the right) were used. This means it could be from 1922 until the beginning of 1927. On what appear to be later versions, the addresses have been omitted."
Here is some info on the famed L.A. retailer:
Garrett; Thanks for sharing these gorgeous hats from your collection. Stunners - both of them. The longhair and the special ribbon work fedoras need to be seen out and about more often. Perhaps you can hear my clapping from here in Minnesota.
Doesn't look a day older. Fantastic ribbon!
It wears its scars with pride! Magnificent.
"Corona" "Deutsche Wertarbeit" possibly 1930s. The black Velour is fantastic and easily dry creases. I really like the unique liner design. There is no paper label and no company mark. I believe it could be the same company that made my "Neuheit" "Spitzenklasse" "Extra Fein" Velour.
Sold in 2013 by our very own Dinerman but haven't bothered to take additional photos until now
Circa 1910's Miller-Allaire Co.
More info on this company here:
The Packard Hat “Ambassador”. The box itself has a copyright year of 1931 noted.
Very nice, Tonio. I haven't seen many other examples of the Packard hat. Here is the only one I have:
Thank you, that straw is impressive! The few Packard examples I’ve seen here were bowlers. Seems that they were manufactured by “S.M. & Co”. I haven’t turned up much info. Here’s a label on one that previously surfaced (not mine):
Wow, indeed. There's something about this hat I find tremendously appealing. Can't exactly pinpoint what it is though.
Circa 1910's Bellemont (not mine)
