    Thanks, Joe. You should have seen this hat when I first got it. The crown was so tall you would have thought I was the cat in the hat. I had to smash its top down a long way just to get it to look like a standard high crown fedora. LOL

    Thanks, Brent. It’s malleable with lots of steam after that it stifens up. Pretty thick felt on this one.

    Gives the crown a great blocky look this way. I have a hat I have to do the same. If not it gives me Abe Lincoln vibes.

    Well, in Northern Italy, we are in winter. Tonight the temperature dropped below 0 degrees C. on a clear night.
    Corteccia B.jpg The sun and the cold greeted us this morning as I took these photos.
    Corteccia 4B.jpg
    Borsalino Qualità Extra Superiore, the color of the felt is "Corteccia - Cortex", no indication on the color or material of thee ribbon.
    Corteccia 3.jpg It comes directly from the Sixties and is new, size 6 or 59 cm. 7 3/8 US
    Corteccia 4A.jpg
    The felt is very malleable and the finish, as you can see from the photo taken above the crown, is slightly hairy.
    We inaugurate with this Borsalino the brown-green hats in its immense variations.

    I wish you all a happy Monday

    Ouch. That's almost as bad as saying, "If you could have only one Gannon on a deserted island, it would be..."

    Good morning.

    Dare was won! One hat all day yesterday. I did chores, went for a long walkabout, 2 dog walks, cleaned up fire pit and cut some branches up. The hat with all the work my hat sweat needed to dry, have a small bit of leather conditioner added and a strong brushing. The brushing was from getting knocked on the ground, from tree branches, and brushing up next to the auto door seals. The brushing removed the soil (I could see). I am the winner! Ha, no triple dog dare can keep me from winning such an audacious task.

    Tongue in cheek rant over - for this morning's dog soire I wore a Stetson Scoop. A stingy brimed 2.25" (5.715 cm) over welted hat. It is a silver gray hat (cool hue) that has terrificly maleable felt. The overwelt makes the brim stiff. I have seen advertising pics of this hat and it was worn brim down. I wear it as advertised. Just a fun and minty hat to wear.

    A walkabout with a cup of coffee found me changing to a pre-40's Kensington. This "Super Fine Quality" hat was made in Brockville, Canada. The accurate light blue felt hue can be seen in the under brim pic.

    Wonderful Homburg, Steve. Love the shape. The catalogue is such a super find, too. A total delight.

    Steve, Thank you! I had forgotten about this Homburg. I agree that it has a nice shape. I wish I could find more old catalogs but they rarely appear (or I just miss them).

    The clear blue sky maybe is reflecting a blue cast… the felt is deep dark black.
