Does anyone have a good picture that accurately shows the color of a steel Grey Borsalino hopefully in natural light? The steel grey Winchester makes is too dark for what I want so It looks from Bencraft that it is a bit lighter.(at least on my monitor)

Is the medium Grey that Del Monico hatters uses for the "Como" the same as the Steel Grey from Bencraft? One can not really make an accurate guess from looking at a computer screen so hopefully someone can help me out.

The official color for Steel Gray is called Sebina in Italian. it is color 52. Most stores use the same color. We do carry other grays as well. The best option that I tell a customer is either come to the store ( a benefit to deaing with brick and mortar stores) or order the hat . If it works-great. If not just send it back.
A side problem to comparing colors is that when you photograph hats , they never come out the same every time. This is due to the lighting . Every time we order this color , it will always come out different as well.

May I chime in ???

Could you possibly tell me what color is 1311 ???

It is a grey or gray but would that be a medium or light??

I have no brick and mortar stores within 3 hours from me.... :eusa_doh: :(

Perhaps I am really out of touch, but is there a hat color chart that you all are referring to? If there is one, would you be so kind as to share?

The Borsalino color chart is a sight to behold. There are many different shades if grays, browns and tans. If people realized how many were available they would go crazy. I dont think many smaller stores know what the company can make otherwise it would get out of hand. Its not like Stetson that offers a certain style in 5 colors. borsalino can make any hat in 50 colors .

I have a Borsalino from what appears to be the late 1950's that has a paper tag inside that says Stibina,.....I don't know if this is the color or the stye.

For what it's worth:

Is the Borsalino color chart online anywhere? If so, where? I've been looking around but haven't been able to find it. :)
