    The cold arrived in a clear morning
    RutenioB 1.jpg
    A classic of autumn in Northern Italy, so for the morning walk up to the Adige river I chose a classic Borsalino RutenioB 3.jpg
    Borsalino Qualità Extra Extra Superiore, size is 6 1/2 so a 7 1/2 US
    RutenioB 5.jpg
    The felt is soft and a little "rebel". The color combination is a usual in Borsalino choice. "Rutenio" felt and ribbon is "Asfalto" RutenioB 2.jpg Have a nice day!
    Thanks for your kindness for the flooded Borsalino "Savoy"
    A great compliment for you loungers and your wonderful hats

    Had to dust off my #810 flange and do a third reflanging on my Bark Brown Stagecoach conversion. I wasn't quite satisfied with the looks of the other two different flanges for the brim style I was trying to accomplish on this hat. Third time's a charm, I always heard. After this one I'm going to have to take a break from doing conversions for the next several weeks until I get my back straightened around with more PT that I have scheduled.

    This hat sports a very tall and vertical crown in a longhair finish...

    The back shows how straight sided this hat is.

    Very nice Borsalino, Daniele. I'll mention the Columbia jacket you wearing, too, as the CEO, and "One Tough Mother," Gert Boyle, recently passed away at 95. She took the failing company over after her husband died and made it into a contender, and survived an attempted kidnapping for ransom a few years ago. A man I go to church with phoned in the tip that lead police to rescue her.

    Thanks Doug. I read the interesting story of Gertrude Lamfrom and the origin of the Columbia that started as an hat company:Columbia Hat Company. How many links in this world:)

    Thank you Dale. I was originally scheduled for pain management but my insurance demanded that I do PT before I go that route. After several weeks of PT and pain management I'll be right back doing my conversions.

    Cool and gray morning here in Minnesota. A vintage 30's Stetson Scoop was my hat for morning adventures.

    B, L-R: Canadian, 50's LD liner 3'brim and the 60's with a 2 5/8" brim. The differences between the two US hats is very subtle. You can see the color difference and both have very firm but easily shapeable crowns and stiff brims. The younger hat's brim is quite a bit stiffer but neither could be reshaped w/o a lot of work. Both hats appear to have been produced on similar blocks with near 6" crowns.. The finish on the 60's hat seems just a bit finer than the other but with my sense of touch it's difficult to tell. Both hats have very dense and thin felt of a western weight @167 grams for the 3" and 162 for the other.

    The Canadian is the softest and finely finished of the three. One of those you just enjoy handling. It's a crushable hat compared to the other two. I've literally crushed the crown in my fist and reshaped it w/o steam. It is quite dense but pounced to a thin dress weight @ 143 grams.

    Thanks, Randy; it’s my latest Phoenix. The felt is granite and the ribbon color has been lost to history.
