    Beautiful. Glad to see it restored to full splendour. I do like the Borsalino misto felts and they did do quite a lt of them.

    Very beautiful, Daniele. I think this is the only example of the "bario" colour I've seen.

    Borsalino BSHW 1 R.jpg
    Borsalino Qualità Extra Extra Superiore size is 6 1/2 or 7 1/2 US very true size
    Borsalino BSHW 4 R.jpg
    This Borsalino arrived with two others of a size larger than mine, one is now at Charlie's house, another remained unsold and this was the worst in conditions, but of my size. He needed a reconstruction, so he left for the West of the United States where it was exemplarily restored at the BSHW
    Borsalino BSHW etichetta carta R.jpg
    Borsalino probably from the 40' sold in Italy from the seller information, "Dattero" is the color of the felt and I'm unable to decipher the type
    Borsalino BSHW interno R.jpg
    The proportions of this beauty are: brim at 7 cm. and crown at 10.5 cm.

    The hat had a new ribbon and a new sweatband to be worn again, but it didn't look good on me, so it was reblocked recently and that's the result.

    Grazie Steve. Unfortunately the Borsalino is still too much a "twister" on my head and I think it will go on sale

    I found this one in a charity shop about a year or so ago. I don't think I've ever posted it here, so it's time to make ammends.

    It's not a classic Borsalino by any means, but the fact that it is one, and its tweed trilby style appealed to the Englishman in me, I couldn't resist buying it.

    I've almost never worn it, but it was my hat of today.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That one is a beauty, love the colors.

    Excellent hat, Steve. I love a little change of pace with a few fabrics thrown into the mix now and then.

    Looks good on you, Steve (must be because you're English). We hardly ever see hats of this type here in the brotherhood thread, but they certainly were a good part of Borsalino production.

    Borsalino Cicosca in misto stagno. Size 56, felted ribbon, overwelt edge at 6cm with four rows of stitching. Unlined with a crown patch covered in cellophane. Qualitá extra extra superiore and weighing 94 grams. Sold by Melegari of Milan. being a misto felt it might contain some wool; hard to tell. Unusual to see a misto in the extra extra superiore quality. Mid to late fifties.
