GB Borsalino fu Lazzaro bowler hat. Model is called Scutari. Size 58 with the brim at 5cm and the crown about 13cm (as far as I can tell). It has one of these sweatbands (in white) with the seam at the side, rather than the back. We've seen more examples of this on bowlers. No idea why this was done.
Great hand to the felt and the quality is excellent. The brim binding and liner show their age a bit though.

Another excellent bowler, Stefan. Here is mine by the same maker. I picked this one up from Daniele, as I recall, a couple years back.

Man, I dig that green sweatband! Keep Daniele in your good graces…maybe one in a color other than black will come along.
Brent, I found from the Borsalino cousins, the rebels, a gray bowler hat (small size) that went to Alan in Montana, then a lot of blacks, maximum size 5 1/2. I always have a keen eye on this type of hats in the Italian market, but black was a must even if Spes Ultima Dea

I bagged this ones brother from Daniele at the time. You managed to just get there before me on this one with its wonderful green sweat.
Looks good on you Randy, so no hard feelings :)

Thanks, Randy. We're lucky that now and again these hats turn up. And bowlers by the other Borsalino seem to turn up more than other hats by them. I'll take it.

Thanks, guys.
