    Nice, I like that hat band. Is it a Native American Seed Bead ?

  2. Thank @Hagwood ! They are glass and irregular, but I don’t know the provenance as they came with a different hat purchase.

    Greg this CB presents as perfect as all your hats do. It being younger than some of your other CBs, do you appreciate much difference in the felts? I know the felt stiffness can vary but what are your thoughts?
    Heck of a hat!

    Unknown brand. It was missing a liner and a sweatband, and was misshapen. Ignacio says it is made of Australian wool. Wool always feels scratchy to me, but this doesn't[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Marvelous as always Daniele!
    Of all the “feltratos” i’ve handled i believe Borsalino to have the most elegant and finely finished. Disney does a fine example as well. It’s always nice to see a well finished brim to complete a fine hat.
    Thanks for sharing a new term, “feltrato”, too.

    Nice spiral stitch no-name Max. Didn’t know you had any.
    Is that a Van Gogh over your left shoulder Max??

    I'll let her know. She has some real knockouts. Stetson Zephyr, Marathon Contraster, take a belt sander to my head Borsalino, Disney, Portis...you get the picture.

    Beautiful country over there. If you make it to Sisterdale around lunch time, be sure to stop by Black Board BBQ. You won’t regret it.

    Great hat. Nice shirt. Just right for the weather. We’re about to get a good rain tonight here in Kerrville, America.

    Thanks Bowen. "Feltrato" is a word used by Borsalino for finishing the brim, an unusual term in Italian laguage, but it exist: Feltrato "Ridotto a feltro" Certainly it is very elegant and well made, but Barbisio also has a remarkable degree of finishing in this area. I absolutely don't know American hats with such a finish, so I have no comparison. I also suspect that Borsalino used this type of brim treatment almost exclusively for foreign markets.

    Have we seen that one before? That is a nice color combo.
