    Every now and then some fans ask me which are the Italian hats that I love the most.
    Here is one of those that I would put in the top ten
    Cafro apertura.jpg
    The reason is simple: it is one of those unique hats or at least that have unforgettable peculiar characteristics
    Cafro 7 bis.jpg
    Borsalino Qualità Extra Extra Superiore, size is 6, so a 59 centimeters or a 7 3/8 US. In reality it is a full 60 or 7 1/2 US
    "Tipo esportazione" says the sweatband, but there is no other indication. It is one of the rare that came with the original box
    Cafro 8 bis.jpg
    The color of the felt is "Cafro" and the type "Deiasti". The paper label is from the Fortys and the size is stamped in some way.
    Cafro 4 bis.jpg
    The felt is soft, pliable and a sort of feather, even if the hat has the weight of around 100 grams
    Cafro 7.jpg
    What amazes me and I particularly like is the color of the felt which varies between deep red and purplish brown.
    The finish is antelope or peachy, as you want to call it. Fantastic

    This is one, now we have to find the other nine, or rather eight because the "Aureola" colored Borsalino is another of the untouchables

    That is an exceptional looking Borsalino, Daniele. I can see why it's in your top ten.

    Dynafelt - Water Repellent
    Espresso - Dark almost black felt
    5 inch crown as shaped
    1 5/8 reddish brown grosgrain ribbon
    2 inch overwelt brim

    This Dynafelt was the travel mate of the chocolate brown Mallory from this weekend. Dynafelt is marketed as “The Water Repellent Fur Blend” And the last one I had gotten wet the water beaded up nicely. This one is a very dark brown almost black espresso color. With a reddish brown ribbon. The liner is pretty neato. This one’s tag shows it’s content breakdown of 85% wool, 10% Fur and 5% other fibers. Which explains its fairly rough texture. Could make a good rain hat if I don’t move it on.

    And speaking of that Mallory... it got plenty oh head time today as well

    Looks good up, Steve. I really dig the brim over welt with the bold ribbon and bow.
