That seems to be some serious German in this advertisement. What’s your opinion, Mayser, is this difficult language? I can’t see this being meant for the typical working class of the time.

Here’s my translation:

At the top it says it won a bunch of golden medals across Germany, then there’s the logo and then it says, according to my clumsy translation:

“The lightest and
most elegant stiff
gentleman’s hat never before
matched. The trademark
is born permanently in
gold lettering on the
sweatband.
-Wonderful ventilation
from a new system.-
On hand in the finest
hat stores
at home and abroad.

I’m not even sure if this translation is quite right - the funny grammar makes this advert quite challenging. At least these days i’ve only heard very educated Germans use this kind of grammar. This seems to be an interesting artifact of the class system in 19th century Germany - quite a difference from the typical American vintage hat advertisements I’m familiar with. It doesn’t even list a price!

Thank you for sharing this!
Nathaniel, Thanks! I will have a native speaker take a look at it. Maybe one here will comment too. It's from the 1895 so definitely from a different time. I am not sure where it came from (snipped from) but it's an advertisement from the hat company and not a retailer. You might want to take a look at this "Hat Manufacturer (Manufactory) Of Rehfus & Co, Kehl, Information On The Manufacture in English, German, French and Spanish languages, 1883"

Kind of a 1930s dock worker look with that coat and cap. I don't know if that was what you were going for, just popped into my head. Great look Harv.

He coulda been a contendah!

Smart and youthful Jim...

Extraordinarily great Mallory. The edge is interesting and the color looks wonderful.

Youthfully Brilliant, Jim.

Thanks, guyz. Actually not so smart and less youthful by the day. [emoji4]

This is a very classic "homburg" in proportions with ribbon and finishes on the brim that match the color of the felt

I've been out of the office having to pretend to be a grown-up way too much this week. Happily, this morning is the last one. I'm wearing the blue Dobbs Fifteen for the occasion.

I hope that each of you have a fun Thursday full of great hats. View attachment 96878View attachment 96879View attachment 96880View attachment 96881View attachment 96882View attachment 96883View attachment 96884

Peters Brothers this morning.
Sweet one Bob. Love the shape.

Inky black Kitten Finish Beaver Twenty Five Resistol on this chilly Wisconsin morning. The felt on this hat is simply incredible! Enjoy.

Black hats rule Mike. Love that liner tip. I agree that this one needs more head time.

OMG Daniele! That is one of the most beautiful Lobbia Borsalinos in history! Love the color, lines and the pristine condition. Definitely a major favorite!

Yesterday was New Hat Day, as I took delivery on a recent eBay win.

So far this morning we have a Dobbs Fifteen and a Resistol Twenty-five. I'm coming in with the low bid in this Mallory Ten. The auction photos weren't the best, and I prayed it would clean up nice, but what I received yesterday was beyond what I expected. Fantastic (and very pettable) felt, an interesting dark gray color, sharksgill bow, wind trolley, felt and sweat in great condition, what more can a guy ask for?

Gave it a good steaming and brushing before work and put a quick diamond in it.

Man, I love the smell of steamed vintage felt in the morning!



GILLS!!



Cool edge treatment. The binding is wider on the bottom than the top, resulting in this bound and stitched top edge.

I'll take better shots when I can for the Mallory thread. It was dark when I got home from work last night, and dark when I got in this morning, so I haven't even seen it in natural light yet.

I wish everybody a Youthfully Smart Thursday!

Yes, the smell of felt in the morning...smells like...VICTORY! Gills! I'll have to check out more details on the Mallory thread. Great catch, fishing from the "Bay". Congratulations on this one. Envy, covet...

Ooo I like that one very much! I don’t think I’ve heard of that Catalina G Hatmaker before.

That hat is absolutely superb Daniele. And the scarf is very nice too. A great look for a chilly morning.

A super dandy pickup Jim. That is a fine looking Mallory and looks good on you.
