No matter how long I search it's unlikely that I will ever find another one of those. Fabulous hat, Mike.Day 30 of 31 Hat Parade: I have only scratched the surface of my collection/obsession. Saving the best for last kind of left me in a lurch, so many more that deserve featuring, but no days left. Hat crazies have a term for how a felt hat feels..."hand". Sometimes hand involves lustful petting! Such is the case with this early 1950s Borsalino "Angora" in the Italian color Misto Grigio (dark gray). This long hair felt is all soft and floppy, she does what she wants, or as the wind mandates. Sold in one of the finer men's stores in Chicago in 1950-1953. The price tag show the OPS (Office of Price Stabilization during the Korean War) price of $20.00, a pricey sum to be sure. This hat is to be stroked like a sleeping kitten, looks as good as she feels.

Super colour, Jim. Is it the same hat as the one @Michael A has?
Perfect fot its surroundings. Great pics as always, David.Not on par with the many treasures I see here, but I like the color of this 70s Stetson 5X for a walk to the beach.
Walked back into town and waited in line with a bunch of masked locals for my favorite spice Ahi poke bowl, and enjoyed lunch at a nearby picnic table.
