Santa Claus showed up early today on eBay! A rarely ever seen Stetson Sixteen Fifty from the late 1940's. This one is 3X Beaver longhair with 2 3/4 inch Mode Edge brim. The Mode Edge stamp is in rear and sideways, which I've never seen before. Only a couple of other Sixteen Fiftys are on FL, one or more being Imperial Stetson models. This hat is from the same store in Buffalo, NY as hatophile's Sixteen Fifty.

Late 1940's Royal Stetson Deluxe Stetsonian, just won in eBay auction. Wasn't cheap but a lot less than I figured it would cost and much less than the auction for the first Stetsonian that I bought. I've come to the conclusion that a Whippet is just a poor man's version of a Stetsonian.

Not many Lagomarsinos on the Lounge. Mine isn’t anything particularly special, but I quite like having it in my work rotation.


This will be my third. I mostly see their leather hats. The two felt hats of theirs that have passed through my hands have said nutria on the liner, as this one does, and markings on the sweatband that states they are made of rabbit.

I recall you saying that. No such markings on mine, so I’m assuming it’s nutria.
This is the picture of what I believe is my hat from the website. None of it is in Englis, and links lead to nowhere, so I haven’t been able to find any details about it.
