    Well, I’m trying to sell off a good chunk of my collection of hats, because I’m running out of storage space fast and I’ve decided (out of necessity) to go for quality instead of quantity. I’ll be listing them here for those who can appreciate a good hat when they see one and who know how to take care of it. Some I let go (most in fact) because the fit just isn’t exactly right (you wouldn’t believe how many cork spacers came out of this pile of hats), or because I have a better hat which is more or less the same, because the hat just doesn’t work for me or just because I bought it to move it along in the first place.

    I’ll be listing them by size. Because I’m a size 7 (American) myself, most of the hats will be in the 7 and 7 1/8 range. I will say something about fit and size for a hat when necessary. Needless to say: these are vintage hats: what you see is what you get.

    Postage is not included in the price. To the US postage will be $25 (it’ll cost me more, but we’re all loungers here). Buy more at the same time and save on shipping. Heck, buy all of them and let’s make a deal.

    PM me if you’re interested, for questions or if you want to see more pictures of the individual hats (or all of these). These will not be on sale on Ebay; it's an Fedora Lounge exclusive kind of thing. Be patient: I'll be posting 50 hats in total.

    Let's start with the size 6 7/8 (two of which fit like a 7).
    1. Hellings
    Fedora in black. German. Lined. Bound brim at 6cm and crown 10cm at the pinch.
    This hat is labeled 55cm but fits me as a size 56 easily.

    2. Peschel Chevret
    Fedora in black. Austrian. Lined. Overwelt edge at a hair under 6cm and the crown at 10cm at the pinch.
    This hat is labeled 55cm but fits me as a size 56.

    3. Windsor
    Fedora in grey. German. Overwelt edge at 5,5cm and crown at 9,5cm at the pinch. Unlined. This is a true size 6 7/8 (or 55 European).
