    Nodding to Parker Melvin with two of my falcon parks this week so far.
    Needed the extra bold boost of confidence this week. Oy.

    Thanks Red,

    Well the felt om my navy and mid grey D'Aquino is fairly soft and has a rich feel ( for lack of a better word) the lighter colors ( light grey, beige), feel thinner, flatter and stiffer.

    Construction seems fine to me, though the brim binding on my light grey hat could have been finished a bit neater (see D'Aquino thread for photos)

    All in all I find them great value for money. They are not on the same level as a custom hat from Esther for example. Finishing on those hats is much nicer.

    Esther handled both the beige and mid grey hat. Maybe she can explain some of the differences. I think it has to do with the way the ribbon and sweat are stitched, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to ask more questions.

    Good afternoon. Lunch and dog walk in a Gannon (silver mist w/gray/blue ribbon). I sneeze or shake my head quickly and the crease/dents change.

    Cool ribbon. I have a similar ribbon on a vtg. Stetson Casual. I dated mine to 40's.

    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.

    Eric, I can't be of specific help here, but I believe in perusing the Resistol Roundup you will find a date range, perhaps early 50s, where they switched from that funky shaped "O" to the more standard one.
