I'm still eyeballing a grey Bowler from them. How much was shipping to us on the west coast?I agree with Serge's response. D'Aquino is a good value for a custom fur. The hand-feel of the two rabbit homburgs I purchased from Luisa are not as soft as a vintage American rabbit fur, but not as rough as an Akubra standard finish. My only complaint is that D'Aquino passes over some of the finer touches in order to keep production economical. Most notably, the brim binding on my homburgs overlaps in the back (a good 3/4") and it's tacked on using a rather large stitch, the liner is synthetic and is glued in (although a removable liner can also be provided), and the reed stitching on my gray hommie has begun to fray slightly. But all-in-all, D'Aquino's offerings are a good value and are very sturdy.
It has been raining hard all day here. I'm going to have let some water out of the Koi pond before too long. Love the finish on that Borso. Daniele is the best!Hey everyone!
Grey hat for a grey day. NOS Borsalino from the 80's that I got from Daniele.
I'll most likely need my raincoat later. Oh well, it was nice to have a dry spell, brief as it was..
Have a great day!
