Brasiliano

I got this Brasiliano hat shipped over from Italy. It’s a Borsalino knock-off, and while the quality isn’t AS nice, it’s still pretty good, with a very nice fur felt body. The sweatband’s not the best, but it is leather.

Always on Top – Oasis cowboy hat

This hat, from the 1950s or 1960s, is a cheap wool felt. The welted brim edge is something you see on fedoras, but you just don’t see on nicer westerns. A hat like this needs it for stiffening. It has a horseshoe shaped crease, an imitation leather band and a very thin liner.
