    Got this one a week ago not really knowing what it was. Found the Dalton reorder tag and considered myself pretty lucky.
    New sweat from @bond and I’m looking for a different ribbon. The crease is just what it turned into with a little steam, works just fine for me.

    Did you sew the sweatband on yourself, Richard? Those @bond sweats are pretty darned good, aren't they?

    Start by saying thank you for all the likes and appreciations you have given me with your words.

    Today, for the parade of unknown Italian hats, I present a hat made in Merano
    [​IMG]
    The felt, the type of finishes and the color combination, very common in Italian production of about fifty years ago, makes me think it is a product of Valle del Cervo (Barbisio, Cervo)
    [​IMG]
    The hat is a product of the M. Hutter hats shop in Merano sold together with the much more expensive Borsalino, probably to satisfy the less prosperous public.
    [​IMG]
    The felt is of medium weight, trimmed with a matching color on the brim and the ribbon has the same color
    [​IMG]
    Soon I will show you its "brothers" in style and color produced by large and small Italian hats producers

    Buon Sabato a tutti

    Max, you’re entirely right Scott’s sweatbands(@bond) are good and he’ll cut to just about any length at a pretty reasonable price.
    I’m not nearly as talented as TJ and some of the other Loungers but I can adequately handle a sweatband and sometimes even a ribbon.

    Daniele, in your expert opinion, is the price difference just a question of the brand, or is there a marked difference in quality?

    And another questiin for you. I just bought a hat made of hare fur. Is there a greater risk of it shrinking if it gets wet?[​IMG]

    You bought a lot, even a wagon of hats and looking at them, touching them, wearing them, having your conversations with Ignacio about the making and felts did not you give an answer to yourself?
    The experience of having such a large number of hats in your hands that you can observe closely and make your comparisons should have led to some conclusions.
    I know very well the Italian and the French hats because I have so many and with the time and the observations of the details I have learned to know them, therefore only on these I can give you my opinions. Certainly not on American hats I do not know or those German and English that I know little.
    I can answer specific questions, about what I know, and if you have any, I'm ready.


    I do not think. Why should it shrink? Which side did you get the idea from?
    The hat you bought is very nice and I would gladly change with one of mine, even if I do not know it and first I would like to touch it to feel the felt ;)

    I meant is there a big difference in quality between the M Hutter hats and Borsalinos.
