Fantastic hat, Brent and a cool find.This size 7 thin ribbon is already on eBay. Great thin and dense felt that truly does mold like clay.
2 ¾” wide brim and the open crown is approximately 5 ½ inches.

So, the question is is it a French Point/Punti size 7 or a US size 7…..
Another beauty. Could be a Savoy model; same finishing and also felted edge.This was sold to me as NOS but from the seller’s photos it was clear the sweatband had been replaced. It’s a great hat with thin lightweight felt the is easily creased dry. The brim has a Cavanagh edge too. The brim is 2 ⅜” and the open crown is approximately 5 ¾ inches. Labels as a size 7 ⅜ or 59cm.

I have a Borsalino hat which I could do with some help with.
I found it at the bottom of a box in a charity shop
I have had to take out the lining and clean it as there was some mildew developing.
It has a code under the lining, does anyone know what it means please?
The hat needs some TLC I think as it’s a little misshapen.
Any info gratefully received, thanks!
I came this close to buying a kilt two weeks ago when I was on the hunt for hats. I'm sure I'll regret it at some point, but I decided not to go for it.I recently told my wife I was thinking about buying a kilt to wear this summer. I think she would have the same reaction seeing me in this size 7 hat.
Believe it or believe it not, but a kilt is on my bucket list to buy before I die list.I came this close to buying a kilt two weeks ago when I was on the hunt for hats. I'm sure I'll regret it at some point, but I decided not to go for it.

Thanks, Alan. As I've learned it's a hypothesis (not a theory). All we need now is a ton of data to see if it holds any merit. Let's bring out the truckloads of old Borsalinos.
