    Looks good to me, my friend. A touch of Lee Marvin about it.

    He’s a great actor, but I was trying to do Robert Mitchum!

    Aw thanks... this is an old and worn No.1 quality that I don't wear too often. It does have a nice flat flange. Glad you like it.

    Nice hat.
    The image reminds me of @DOUGLAS poses. I think that’s right. Boy he had some hats and wore them with style.

    Thanks! You saw that BIN auction? The seller had it listed as a wool hat! There were 23 watchers by the time I found it.

    Steve, Thanks! Yes you are correct! Stefan was just 3 minutes ahead.

    This is an original Möckel Stiff Felt. Möckel went out of business in the early 1930s. The brand was used later by distributors. I have never seen an original Möckel Homburg style hat but I am always looking. I have only seen / handled one Soft Felt Möckel and it was this Velour from the
    Gotisches Haus Bad Homburg collection.

    Yes, I saw both within the first 5-10 minutes of being listed. Just happened to be one of those right place right time situations because I had watched a different auction end. I immediately sent the seller a question about the Borsalino, waited maybe 10 minutes for a response, and just went ahead and BIN'd it without hearing back. I was afraid someone was going to scoop it up. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was a 2-3/4" brim when it arrived.

    I don't remember how much time elapsed before I circled back on that Cavanagh again, but by the time I did it was gone. Glad to see you got it. :)

    I took a few shots and posted some info in the Borsalino Brotherhood thread before putting it in the freezer. I'll be pulling it out tonight before going to bed. Definitely will be wearing it some time this week.

    I'm pretty sure I also ended up with another hat you referenced several days ago as well. Something blue...

    Doh!!!
    Man! You’re lucky I forgot about that one! That’s funny. Well, I’m glad you got it. So how did it turn out?
    I’ll go check out your Borsa.

    We are our own worst critics. You ARE pulling it off, and very well too.

    Yeah, red bricks! THAT’s what I need! Too bad all this hut I live in only has vinyl siding. Can you win bricks from an auction on eBay?:)

    Needs a good brushing but quite solid overall. The felt is more easily workable than a 50s Cavanagh midnite hommie I have. I can easily put in some dents if I want with this one, something that would require steam on the Cavanagh. I'll probably end up doing a side by side compare/contrast of the two down the line.

    There should be several days of sunshine this week after tonight's storm blows through, so hopefully I can get some shots with natural light to appreciate the color. I also have found some preliminary info on the hat shop. I like these house label hats and digging up history on them.
