    1950s Dobbs Homburg
    Black with Black Cherry Trim
    5 3/8 crown with center dent (about 6 open)
    2 inch black cherry grosgrain ribbon
    2 inch brim to d'orsay with 9/16 binding

    Latest arrival 1950s Dobbs Homburg with beautiful black cherry ribbon and binding. The hat arrived in an ample sized box however the seller protectively wrapped the hat in a bag tight enough to leave the brim a bit boxy. Kinda started rounding out over night. The generous crown is about 6 inches open. It does not currently hold any side dents.. in fact it almost seems to prefer open over a center dent. I imagine some steam would allow it to retain various shaping. It arrived in time to accompany my beautiful wife and I yesterday for our 14th anniversary dinner.

    Sharp homburg Joe. Black with cherry is an eye stopping combo. You wear it proudly. Happy Anniversary!

    Probably the nicest Optimo I've seen.

    That's a beauty. Perry.

    A winning homburg, Eric.

    Always a good thing to see the homburgs get some love. Very nice, Joe.
    Excellent hat, Brent.

    Can't go wrong with that one!

    Nice one!

    My new (to me) Borsalino Zebú: as I'm thinking of designating it due to the labels naming of the colour of the felt. It's definitely a brim up Borsa, I think.

    It is a nice find, Steve. There seems to have been a bit of variation in the cocisan model, but who cares?

    The weather has been hot and cold one day to the next. Finally got a nice calm beach day with air temperature 78°, water temperature 79°, 2-3 ft. waves, and 8 mph winds in the late afternoon. Perfect for a Northwest Hat Company Cuenca. I did a one mile swim.

    Excellent Eric. I've been on the lookout for a nice Lee Adventure. May have found one, will know how well I did when it arrives but it looks promising from the pics. Stay tuned. Pristine hats in my size (7-1/4) can get pricey so if I score one under $200 Im a happy camper. ;)
