    Wearing this ‘Super Borsalino’ that arrived the other day to get some pictures today.

    this hat arrived a dirty crumpled mess. After a very thorough brushing and a quick reshaping... it’s now a much less crumped slightly less dirty hat.

    I’m very curious if anyone knows anything about this model. Super Borsalino. This one appears to be French or at least was sold at a French hat store. Sools Maitre Chapelier.

    I’m not sure what is up with this felt. Which appears either a dark grey or brownish.. depending on light. It is somewhat stiff... which allows for it to keep a razor sharp natural edge.. but it also feels that way in the crown.. (almost like canvas that has become sun dried) however it molds easily into shape still. Can pop it open.. or put in a crease easily. The ribbon is falling off... and under the ribbon the felt is a much lighter colored grey that feels a bit more smooth. I wonder if maybe there was a treatment put on the felt after the ribbon was attached. I don’t think it is just from being extremely dirty as the darker color is fairly uniform on all the exposed parts. Except a small area right on the bottom front of the brim that is lighter... maybe from tipping the brim.

    I did find the remnants of a manufacturer label.. but it is rather damaged. The sweat appears to be unreeded and is coming attached in a few spots as the edge of the leather seems sewn directly to the corner of the felt.

    I think I see the remnants of either a cellophane or paper liner tip

    any thoughts on it are appreciated

    Thank you for all your comments and likes on my "wedding hommy" yesterday.

    Next day, following the storm and the wedding, Maclachlan!

    Just an iPhone 11 Pro. It does take nice pics, but the ones the wife takes are better. Spring is close Charlie!

    That’s a beautiful hat Brent. I love the triple bow. I have a dark moss but mine doesn’t seem as dark as yours. Gorgeous!

    Thanks, Alan. I’m surprised at how versatile dark moss can be. My next will probably have a charcoal ribbon to be more neutral.

    Oh, no! Sorry to be confusing (it’s the story of my life, though).
    The snow picture was taken five years ago on the day after my daughter’s wedding. Yesterday was her anniversary. I posted these photos to show the hommy, mark the occasion. The snow shot was the day after, also five years ago.

    Sorry for the confusion!

    Man, that is the complete package Mike ! I’m loving the story of your father’s railroad watch and those spectators. I’m still missing a pair in my wingtip collection.

    After a family lunch for the birthdays of the born in January
    Tirard H 6.jpg
    The restaurant was choosen by my son Davide, it was lead by three young guys and it was excellent
    Tirard H 5.jpg
    Tirard Ragondia, homburg or "diplomatique" made in France in the fifties
    Tirard H 4 bis.jpg
    One of my favourite of the bunch. I like the coordinations of the color, a monocolor
    Tirard H 3.jpg
    The weight of the Tirard (the first of the famous brands hats to close in 1956) is less of many others homburgs I have. It is a glove
    Tirard H 2.jpg
    Have a nice day!
    Thanks for the likes!
