Bonjour FLers! Beautiful day with perfect temps!

Tell me you’re a vintage Borsalino without telling me you’re a vintage Borsalino:
Be of such high quality that can be seen and discovered while restoring.
This labeled 7 1/2 is too big for me and one to flip in need of TLC including sewing back on the sweat, cleaning the liner while leaving it in the hat, and cleaning/shaping the crown and brim.

If you ever wonder if you’re one that qualifies for having a life—then start a vintage, unreeded sweatband resew project. If you finish you obviously do not have a life. If you finish and it looks okay, that helps you feel a bit better, but still—don’t qualify. :)

One of my conversions. This was once a too small Churchill Western that came to me by way of alan. It's been blocked up in size and converted to a fedora. It sports a tall straight crown with a Center Dent and a dimensional brim at 2 3/4 front to back and 2 1/2 inches on the sides. I'm not sure what the hat color's called but it pairs up nice with this 1 1/2 Burgundy ribbon.

As usual, nice looking convert, Terry!

Indeed. Almost all of the legacy brands are owned by either Hatco or Bollman.
I think after all the twists and turns of acquisition, all of the HCA brands are now owned by Hatco. I know they own Knox, as well as the others you mention.

And of course, somebody owns Hatco, and somebody owns them, and so on.
