Love it. Excellent gift from Brent! Love the liner and pin.
That’s a great looking hat Charlie. Love the color combo.
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!
More stingy madness.
Resistol Kitten Finish. Center crease no pinch.
Love those kitten finish Resistols!
Looks great Rick!
On the Ninth Day of StingyMas...
A trio of Stingy Straws
Two 60s Crofut and Knapp Milan Braids
And a modern Stefeno “Milan” straw
On the Tenth Day of StingyMas...
Knox Flying Clouds...
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
A couple of really sweet looking stingys on you!
On the Eleventh Day of StingyMas....
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.
Merry Brimness to all and a stingy new year!!!
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.
