Yes........I have several camber hats, generally they will have a deep flange and are meant to be worn brim up, hence the wider binding to the "bottom" or in this case the front of the brim. For us Americans the style diminished after the 30's but was quite popular until then and had a short resurgence in the 50's.....for Europe...well they have always been around and I have a couple of fairly recent German and Italian camber felts.....
Here is a 50's Dobbs Camber with the wider binding to the front (under the brim) that I posted in the WHYWT thread a couple of weeks ago...it is one of my favorites....has a nice relaxed..."I don't care" attitude......

Thanks, Mark. This explanation makes sense to me

This was a two-for-one deal and the second was pretty rough. Both have brims roughly 1 1/2 to 1 5/8 inches wide. STINGY! the Twenty-Five is ho-hum, but the green Four Seasons is a nice little hat if you’re a fan of the style.

I am surprised the brims are that short... I’d expect the dimensions to look different considering 7 1/2 size. Maybe just a camera illusion?

I have A Four Seasons as well and I do agree… Nice little hat.. I think the brim on mine probably 1 3/4 or 1 7/8. They apparently came in nice colors considering your green…. Mine a sort of Caramel
