    My hats, all of which are from that era (well, the ballcap isn't):

    From top left, clockwise:
    Royal Stetson,
    Something either custom from Henry the Hatter or refurbished by them at some point, but it's certainly a 60's style.
    Royal stetson,
    Royal deluxe stetson. That one might be a little newer, late 60's to 70's. Came with a silly braided felt ribbon in the same color as the hat.

    Liners and sweats:
    The one I just got yesterday:

    The green hat before restoration (it got a new sweat, same color but might as well show the original):

    And the ugly liner of the charcoal:

    Not really sure of the age, but 60ies is what I'd guesstimate, and it has one of those "Eulan Beyer" size tags.


    Green velour Borsalino Augusta.

    Some really really cool looking hats. Yet, I'm afraid that Henry the Hatter one above is way to new. The sizetag used, the sweatband style, the liner combined with the underwelt lead me to think that.

    Keep them coming. I'm staring at all the different felt varieties.

    Dobbs seems to have been prolific with those in that style in that era. The oxblood one I posted earlier, labeled "Goldsmith's" was obviously privately made for them by Dobbs and has the same Guild Edge to the brim.

    Here are two others in the same vein (although the first one may be a little earlier than the '50s/'60s theme of this thread [huh] ):

    The original one came on yellowed, crumbling paper in a vintage panama I bought. Must've been handy back in 'hat check' days. Scanned it and color printed enough to go in all my hats! :)

    Taunus

    Both of these Taunus hats are probably early 60s.

    The sweat color matches the felt.

    Could very well be newer. The size tag has a metric size, which means it's probably from somewhere between 64 when the Bureau of standards started trying to get the US to switch and 82 when they gave up on it, unless Henry kept the notation for some reason. It's certainly not late 50's early 60's, but it retains the style of that era.

    Also, if it is indeed a custom job as I suspect it might be, the underwelt means very little as it could simply be the preference of the buyer. If it's been refurbed, then the liner and sweat means nothing.

    Oh, and a quick check reveals the former owner is 84, so the hat being older is not unreasonable.
    (Left an address label inside the hat, and google makes finding public records easy....)

    Adam Crosley PTV

    This Adam Crosley PTV is probably early to mid 60s and has a glued in liner.

    Yes not bad for $7.95. :)

    The Adam Pacesetter* I posted earlier in the thread has a stitched liner so the Crosely PTV is of a slightly newer vintage.

    *The $22.00 is not correct. It retailed for around $10.00. The price was changed at a later date.

    I don't care too much for that particular Dobbs 20 anymore, but the Borso is just beautiful. A real keeper!
