Well, my luck is still holding. I received the hat I ordered from Gamble & Gunn yesterday. Was it grey? Was it tan? Nope. Black. They sent me a black hat. And eBay's "returns" feature is demanding at least one photo, so I'll have to do that tomorrow...well, later today.In spite of the discussion of wool hats a couple of pages back, I pulled the trigger on this Gamble & Gunn "New Orleans" Pork Pie:
Curious to see what color it really is because their website lists it as "Slate Grey", but it looks tan in their photos to me. Two things are certain--first, it'll be a little too large for a snug fit; second, that feather is getting plucked. Other than that, we'll see. Not my first wool felt, probably won't be my last.
Oh cool… you got that. Might be hard too… TOP
I’d say you have a good chance. Seems hats smaller than 6 3/4 are about as rare as hats larger than 7 5/8.. though admittedly less desirable.Thanks Joe. Yeah ... just hoping the size is Punti (based on the overall dimensions they listed and a couple other clues) or I'm going to have a tiny display hat. I figured I can recoup my costs if it comes down to that need.
