Trade for a Weird Whippet? 7 1/8

This is kind of a curiosity—a grayish green Whippet that’s been reblocked so it is 5 7/8 open crown and very steep sided. With a very shallow C-crease it looks almost straight vertical all around, except in front where you get a slight reverse taper. With a diamond crease (lower photos) it gets a reverse taper front and back.

To me it kind of looks like a 1920s fedora or something from Hufvud. It’s too much hat for me but some folks really like this style so wanted to see if anyone has a beater they felt like swapping.

It’s in okay condition—the felt is old but had a gas bath and it’s got new ribbon and binding. The sweat is starting to go but still comfortable.

Message me if interested. I like gray hats a lot, if there’s one laying around not getting enough head time.

Cheers,

David
