    Tim, Thank you! You are looking great in your pristine Stetson "Nutria Quality"! The sunshine really shows off the felt quality!

    Beautiful, Steve. Hard to find them in other colours than grey.

    Stefan, I think it's also market related. I have looked back at all the German market Borsalinos and all are "Qualità Superiore" (wide range of felt types / weights) going back to 1929. The only exception is this 1950s Echter Borsalino "Nutria".

    https://germanaustrianhats.invision...no-german-market/?do=findComment&comment=1326

    Print ads in the German Hat Makers News also mention "Qualità Superiore". This is from 1930.

    Thanks, Tim and @Blare.
    That Nutria is awesome!! Great get.
    In comparison do you notice any major differences between beaver and nutria? I have a Borsa nutria and don’t notice much of a difference, other than a little more stiffness in the nutria.

    Taking a break from the beach on this cloudy day with The Scuttler Cap from Mr. Freedom. A NOS vintage indigo herringbone twill cotton, in an original MF® pattern inspired by vintage 1930’s newsboy eight-panel caps with a genuine kangaroo leather sweatband, and NOS cotton biased tape seam piecing.

    A. Breiter München Der Hutmacher Am Dom, possibly mid 1950s. Not sure if A. Breiter München made this one but it looks like they might have modified it based on the hand written tag. Very interesting bow design and brim treatment.
