Did you ever receive this hat, or did they decide to take it on another intercontinental tour first?

Sorry. It finally arrived, but I've been Prod Oncall at work (finally get off at midnight tonight) and haven't had time and/or mental wherewithal to take & post pictures. <blush>

In another day or two. <fingers crossed>

No hurry, I was just curious about whether or not you finally received it because I went through something similar with the cheap cotton Trilby I mentioned way back in post #5501. It didn't travel the world like yours did, but it took 23 days to make it's way across the Pacific because no one was in a hurry to get it to me.

I just ordered a black Panama with a turquoise band, and even though it will take a couple weeks to get here, I am really looking forward to it.
The company I work for has a black/turquoise/gold logo, so I plan to designate this as my standard hat for any time I don't have to have a hardhat on. Just need a subtle gold accent of some kind to round out the look.
 
This Stetson 7XCB looks to be more "modern" than those that are coveted by most around here, but at $15.01 I'm not going to complain much. Probably needs a gas bath and possibly a re-block. Happy that it is a 7-1/2 LO (or maybe it is 7-1/2" as the listing states ... if so I won't be so LO...L).

Best deal I’ve heard of in a long time. If it doesn’t fit and you want to double your money.... ;)

For some odd reason none of you even bid against me and I wound up with this. Something is wrong with the Universe or something. It could be a wool hat, that is what the seller listed it as but I could not find anything in the photos to support that. I bid on it thinking the odds of no one outbidding me at the last minute were probably zero. Supposed to be an Adam Texan but the label under the sweat says its a Texas E model. Sweat says premier TwoADTX.jpg

Also bought this from deadlyhandsome. A nice looking Knox Twenty. I have had a grey hat on my target list for a while. With the rise of Dr. Max I have had to switch from 7 1/4 to 7 1/8 and a hat jack to stretch them. Shhhh don't tell him. Us 7 1/4 guys might have to hire dancing girls or dancing bears or something to distract him from the internet to give us a shot at some hats.:)

A couple of mystery hats. The seller knew nothing about them (suspected one was made of suede leather :) )
They were in need of rescue.

Hat #1:
Barclay Bench Made

Hat #2 is a complete mystery. The air vented sweatband reminded me of my MacLachlan so I’m hoping it’s indicative of a quality hat.

If anyone has any information one either I’d be grateful the leg up.

Hat number 2 is pretty cool looking. That symbol on the liner is interesting.

I’m hoping they’re both diamonds in the rough. I know Barclay was making hats early in the 20th century, but this looks to be a 1950s hat to me. The second mystery hat...I don’t know. The photos are too low quality to get me anywhere. I’m hoping to have them by Friday anyway.
