The only stingy brim I own. Stetson Stratoliner, probably 1950's. Right at 2 inches.
Two slim brims I found while cleaning out and reducing my hat collection.
Both hats are for sale as part of my purge.

For me I going to interpret stingy brim to include hats with brim 2 inches or less. I have four
Borsalino dress weight well pounced 2" brim
Very nice Borsalino.
Are you sure about the dimensions?
For me the brim looks wider than 2 inchs and the ribbon more like 2 1/16 cm.
Borsalino This is the heavy felt shapes like solf clay well pounced
Cavanagh 50s I pick this up on the bay for $16 about 10 year back 1 7/8 brim excuss my post I am having to re size files to upload and get lost
Werner Hilton 100% beaver felt 2" brim black as spades I should toss the feather? I gave up trying to upload pictures of the interior
I love Pork Pies aka shorter brimmed hats with telescope crowns.
Ofcourse I remember "French Connection" and Gene Hackman, but who really got me started was the character Walter White in "Breaking Bad".
Here is a private video I produced a few years ago. At that time I only had a budget wool Pork Pie hat; meanwhile I have much nicer ones from Borsalino, Panizza, Champ, dobbs, etc.

NOTHING wrong with a nice porkpie!!! Actually they were quite popular with union soldiers and officers during the civil war.....brims were usually wider in the 2 1/2 inch range as they were again in the 50's during a resurgence of popularity as a sport hat. I have two from the 50's a Lee and a Stetson each with a 2 1/2 inch brim, I do have a few other variations from the 60's with 2 inch brims....I love them all and they each have a place in my hat rotation!!
PS enjoyed the video!!!
My new $9 early 1950s? Dobbs. Brim is a little stingy compared to what I usually wear, but it's growing on me
Only the second Werner Hilton I’ve seen! Please, PLEASE try to do at least one interior shot?
Go to the window, with the hat interior facing the light, brace yourself (to help control camera shake) and try a few. We don’t have to buy film anymore, so keep shooting. Once you find the sweet spots, you’ll be shooting like pro!!
This little "Wildleder" Trilby in sage color has a nice and soft felt. I like the contrasting brim edge in dark green-brown.
Late 1950s (?) Dobbs Rainbow. At 1-5/8” it’s my narrowest brim.
You seem to look good in anything you pop on your head.
Ha! You are too kind sir.
Stingy brims & Porkpies are great when you want to accentuate something else...like your biceps.
I don't remember if I posted this hat before. But it's an old Genuine Milan straw with a 1 3/4" brim in a silvery-bluish-grey. No bicep or beard over compensating here!
Be nice to see it on yer noggin.
I like the extra wide ribbon.^
