Different size tag than what I’m used to:

Interesting find, Brent. The minimal view of the liner and full view of the size tag suggests a fairly modern Borsalino. If it's a size 7 punti, then it's quite a large hat. However, it looks to be more of an imperial size 7.

Hope I'm wrong and it's more your size than not.


Do you know when the “Original House” markings stopped? Maybe @steur or @Daniele Tanto can assist with this.

Interesting question. Obviously it was only done for the American market. Have to look into it, but I'd say somewhere around the late seventies they probably stopped using it. The Marque Grand Luxe hats don't have it, but they weren't exclusieve for the American market, I think. Have to look at some more modern American market hats to be sure.
