    This week I will feature Echter Borsalino Hats which were made for the German Market. The hats will be from the late 1920s up to the 1950s.

    Echter Borsalino Export Qualität "Cescosca" "Palladio", date stamped 3/19/59. The "Palladio" Felt color is fantastic. As usual very pliable Felt with great hand. The Form is very nice as you can see from the photos. As mentioned previously Export Qualität designation was added in the mid 1950s.

    Thanks a lot, Bill. I like contrast, too.
    But, I also like monochrome.
    Shoot, I just like fedoras, period. :)

    Thanks, Blare and Brent! I’m ecstatic about this one.
    The brand, the ample proportions, the fairly unique pug, the wide double stitched binding, the liner, the decade of manufacture; everything.
    A Lee that comes close to this one is my next target. Wish me lots of luck!

    Man, Steve, I really like that one!
    The color and shape is fantabulous.

    Dang slide rule soldiers. (Thanks)

    My HS math teacher told me "Pi R squared."

    I told him, "No, pie R round. Cornbread R square."

    Appropriate analogy. It's an analogy, right?

    Y'know, sometimes I wonder why I post.

    Basic linen Newsboy from B!Wear Cap Company, with a Thai Batik cloth face mask on the Masked Corona Crawl today. Lots of folks filling up the pickup truck heading out for a big weekend. Me...I just walk down the hill, turn left along the coastal trail to Keália Beach, swim out past the surfers, and float over the swell.

    I didn’t know you had a B!Ware cap. Brett is an interesting guy, and I really like his caps and his prices. I need to order another.

    I picked up a very nice vintage wool herringbone 8 panel cap from B!Wear a couple of years ago that I really liked, but didn’t bring to the island. I just received this fuller body, larger brim linen hat today. I’m hoping that he can source some hemp straw for my next cap. His work is quite good, and his prices are very reasonable.

    You motivated me. I just sent Brett an email and ordered a linen cap. We are forecasted to hit 110 degrees this coming week, and a light airy linen cap sounds like just the ticket.

    Great job as usual, Terry. You made a tired hat look like new.

    I feel like Hermione whenever I do this (as Snape would say: "Tell me, are you incapable of restraining yourself, or do you take pride in being an insufferable know-it-all?";)).

    Convenient: you could see the planes through the brim!
    That is a massive crown on that hat. Jim. A stovepipe straw!

    It's a Knox Twenty, what's not to like?
    Nice and airy. Mike Miller did it justice.

    Wonderful, Randall. Killer ribbon.

    Another superb example, Steve. Superlative craftsmanship.

    Lovely shape and colour, Max. Looks like a perfect versatile hat.

    This bring German week 4 to a close, but it isn't over yet. Still more Germans to come (it's like playing football against them; it's never over.;) That real football you guys.)
    Rockel Exquisit (because it was cold enough to wear it)
