    I ma de a booboo with the title of the previous thread: that should have been part VII. O well.
    Anyway: 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.

    Even more of the size 7 1/8 hats now.

    Ha! Love the Terry hat! Unfortunately, finances haven't been shining on me this year. A back ailment and pending surgery has kept out of work for the past several months leaving me with empty pockets.

    Thanks for the interest, Terry. I can see why this would would be perfect for you. Sorry to hear about your situation. It doesn't look like the Terry Hat is going anywhere real soon. I'll see where the sales go on the other hats and who knows...?

    Maybe it'll still be around. Good luck with the sales, buddy. You've got some nice ones there....I'm not usually a black hat fan, but your black Mayser really stands out. It has a real nice profile with classic lines. I'd like to see someone snatch up on that one.
