Has anyone seen a 140 before? The highest I’ve seen before is a 135.

Do you usually buy hats that aren’t your size? Are you selling it since you can’t wear it or what?


I buy hats in my size. I buy hats in sizes I think I can sell. I occasionally buy hats in sizes I can’t wear just to experience the hat. I’ll sell a couple hundred hats this year and maybe add 15 to my personal collection as well as some custom hats. I’ve also been known to trade hats with other Lounge members/friends.

Nice! I was wondering if you did selling too since you said it wasn’t your size because that’s the only thing that would make sense. Do you have a favorite brand/years/type/quality of all?

I can’t say I have a favorite. Borsalino, Mallory, Dobbs, Stetson, Cavanagh, and many others all made great hats. The Europeans made the best velours etc. The 1940s had, in my opinion, the best combination of component quality and style and proportions. Your preferences may differ.

I like Resistol quite a bit too. I have a 70’s resistol 100 and a 70’s beaver 125 and they’re great. As far as Stetson goes I know they made beaver 100s and I’m sure they’re great but the older 7x clear beaver are the ones I hear about the most. Are they the best Stetsons?

I bought this hat on a whim the other day because it’s so beautiful and I’m sure it’ll be too big for me because it’s a 7 1/8 and I wear 7/7LO. It hasn’t arrived yet but I plan to clean up the crease lines in the crown and nothing else. I’ll be posting it for sale on eBay when it arrives so if anyone on here is interested in it just let me know before I put it on eBay.

Grabbed this Silverbelly Plains model from shopgoodwill; it needs a new sweat since it's cracked in the back, and coming loose. Has a 2 cord band. No mention of beaver, does that mean there is none? I haven't applied much steam yet, but it seems to really want to stay with the cattleman crease.
