The BORSALINO BROTHERHOOD

Just got my first Borsalino off of the ebays. I THINK I got a good price, as I haven't actually seen a San Remo for sale there before (which, truth be told, doesn't mean much since the vintage hat addiction only kicked in a few weeks ago now)... But, for $60 shipped, it came in very nice condition (even had the wind trolley bunched up in the bow, now wrapped properly). From what I can tell from the tag/etc, it might be early '60s?? (again, not much I can find about it, though I've seen mention that it was a popular hat in the States...). All in all, I'm really impressed by it. (My wife used the term 'luxurious' when she felt it...)...

Much different than my other hats I've gotten so far!

Nice looking hat and "lupo" is a good colour. This label was used pretty much all through the sixties.

I’m not a fan of the styles of the Avgvsta hats but the felt is great. Diamanté Twenty Five with 5 1/2” open crown and 2” wide brim with an underwelt. The felt is a short nap velour with a great hand.

For me: What does Avgvsta mean? Style?

I’m not sure how it’s pronounced, but I know how it’s spelled:
Well, any word which has no vowels in contemporary languages, is generally unpronounceable.

The Roman alphabet had no letter U, but they used what we now call “V”. It’s easier for stonecutters to carve.

The manufacturer of the hat is simply reflecting a Roman heritage. (I think)

Pretty much summed it up right there, Brent!
