A few days ago my friend Stefan asked me to decipher a paper label of a Borsalino.
Destrina 3.jpg
The color "Destrina - Dextrin", I assume was his curiosity
Destrina 2a.jpg
Ascertained that Borsalino used this color, I remembered that I have a hat of this color. Here it is.

To be exact it is a "modern" G.B. Borsalino fu Lazzaro".

Size 6 (French point) or 59 cm. in US a 7 3/8.
It comes from a deposit found a few years ago near Ferrara, the result of the closure of a hat shop

I found the hat together with others built in the 60s and 70. In the next days I will show them to you because even in this period there were some small masterpieces ;-)

Have a nice day and thanks for your like.

Good morning folks.

A morning walkabout wearing a Mallory homburg. This inky blue felt is showcased by the burgandy trim. A very classy look that better shows up in daylight.

A switched to a different homburg for some shoveling. The Dobbs homburg is certainly a unique green felt.

After the efforts the homburg went on a hat block to dry out and I switched to a Stetson Vogue to fill feeders and move some cut wood.

Cheers, Eric -
I'm loving that green Dobbs today. You are the sharpest dressed snow shoveler out there, no doubt.

So we hit December in Japan.

I know it’s early for Stingymas, but since I’ll be in New Zealand with only one or two hats, I won’t get to participate. So I figured I would share my modest collection of stingy brims in the lead up to the main event.

First up, a Daniele Tanto special. The Véritable Feutre de Poil. A French hat from an unknown maker with a sweatband and ribbon from Penumbra hats. The heathered felt is a fur/wool blend.

5.5cm brim. Stingy enough to qualify, Joe?

Gorgeous hat, Gary.

Mallory must have made some great hats because every time I see one the felt quality looks so damn good! I never see them for sale either.
Mallory are for sure some of my favorites. I would love to have some more pre 1946 Stetson takeover which I don’t come across too too often…. But honestly the Mallory hats I have handled say first 15 years post are very well made and styled hats. A really good quality era for them in my opinion.

Always a treat to get to see the blue Mallory Homburg. That Dobbs is quite the gem as well.
