    Nice looking stingy! I personally really like a black stingy with a white collared shirt and faded jeans. But if you have a light colored dog, be prepared to use some tape on it!

    On the Tenth Day of StingyMas...

    Knox Flying Clouds...

    4F895DA0-0C75-45FD-BE92-82D1D2B50C3E.jpeg

    The somewhat light weight Knox Flying Cloud feature super cool liner art displaying the sailing ship The Flying Cloud.

    Both hats have 1 3/4 brims and about 4 3/4 crowns as shaped

    This grey was likely mid to late 1960s with an $18.50 price tags and a Knox Custom Cavanagh edge. Weighed in at 102g. I put this hat on par with my Dobbs Four Season which also retailed at the same price with a Guild edge.

    The brown one I believe is probably slightly later as it no longer includes the upgraded edge. This one weighs in at 106g

    On the Eleventh Day of StingyMas....

    06063FBD-7735-42D7-BCCE-D3A28C0D730E.jpeg

    Borsalino Marque Grand Luxe XXXXX
    Ghiaccio (Ice/Sand) Supershort Velour like felt
    4 3/4 crown as shaped (5 inch open)
    1 1/2 black grosgrain ribbon
    1 7/8 raw edge brim

    Just in time to join in the StingyMas fun! This beautiful stingy brim Borsalino came off a tip from @deadlyhandsome. The thin lightweight felt is a super soft almost velour like felt with an extremely short nap. The color is Ghiaccio.... Ice grey with sand undertones. The ribbon color name I couldn’t make out exactly but appeared to be D. Marine.. though appears to be black. A black yellow and red feather is tucked behind. The brim comes in at just a hair under 1 7/8 with a nice sharp raw edge. The manufacturing tag points to early to mid 1960s. The only damage appears to be a circular groove in the brim.. possibly from over aggressive cleaning and a couple of tiny tiny moth nibbles under the brim. It weighs in a fit trim 94g.

    On the Twelfth Day of StingyMas

    Two of the most fuzzy and grinchy greenest stingies of them all.

    With a no name “Hatters Guild” tyrolean with a Celtic like band. And an emerald green Borsalino Maloia both at hand.

    And what happened, then? Well, in Stingyville they say – that the Stingy’s small brim grew three sizes that day. And then – the true meaning of BrimMas came through, and the Stingy found the strength of *ten* brims, plus two (or one Stetson Standard Quality)

    Merry BrimMas to All and to All a Good Night!

    On the twelfth day of Stingymas, the vintage hat that started it all for me. My wife got me a "signature historian hat" for my Birthday in 2010, a stingy Woolie Scalia. I found the Fedora Lounge and became interested in something with a little more class. This late 1950s Stetson Royal Deluxe in a nice gray was my first vintage hat. Two inch brim and light as a popcorn fart. Had to have Mike Miller replace the sweat, but this one has served me well. I wear it to all my surgery appointments, good luck hat. Merry Stingymas to all, may your brims be perfect.

    This is my new, old, out on the town hat. It's a sears comfort cushion, I'm not sure how old it is, but it's nice. The brim is less than two inches.
