The series of Italian hats "sons of decline" continues
Ossola 7.jpg

This is a complete "modern" G.B. Borsalino fu Lazzaro, Qualità Suprema. Size is 6 French point so a 59 cm. in EU or a 7 3/8 in US.

The felt is a deep gray felt (Ossola for Borsalino), streaked with white threads. Very soft, it keeps its shape well.

Had all the hats of the Sixties and Seventies been like this, probably some markets would have responded better, but the "creativity" to support the dying Italian hat market was too intense :)

Have a nice day and thanks for your likes

Hey y’all!
Newest addition.
I only saw one other Boardwalk Stroller in my FL search and was a pecan colored one posted by RLK.
This one was a size Seven that’s been successfully upped 2 1/2 sizes. Looks exactly how it arrived and in the same condition, except a bit bigger.
I love it! Great long hair felt. View attachment 470618 View attachment 470624 View attachment 470620 View attachment 470619
Great to see you, my friend. And what a hat to see you in. Love it!

Day seven of pre-StingyMas. I’ve somehow managed to limp through to the one week mark with the help of a cheat (bowler) day.
Today I’m in a Borsalino Anello. The 5.7cm brim is the biggest in the series, if only by a couple of millimeters, though due to the curl, it feels smaller to me. This came to me from Tokyo lounge member, @daizawaguy.
It is, I think, my only hat that will take a dry crease readily.

And with that, my little pre-event event comes to an end.
Looking forward to the main event. I’ll certainly be following from New Zealand.
