This vintage hat was made by Borsalino for the export market. It is a size 7-3/8 with a 1-7/8″ brim.
This vintage hat was made in the late 1920s-early 1930s by Berg. The hat is made for lightly heathered charcoal gray fur felt. It is from the short-lived fashion for a twisted ribbon on the right side of the hat, opposite the bow. The bow has a feathered trailing edge, fashionable for the time, and the hat has a high, tapered crown- considered very sporting at the time. It has an underwelt brim, and an unreeded wide black leather sweatband with an embossed top edge. The hat is a 7-1/4, and has a 2-3/16″ brim and a 5-5/8″ crown.
This vintage hat was made in the mid 1950s by the John B. Stetson Co. from their Royal Stetson grade felt.

The hat is a size 7-3/8, with a 2-3/4″ brim and a 5-3/8″ crown.
This fedora was made in Canada by Biltmore from XXXXX fur felt and was sold by Sacred Feather of Madison, WI. It is a classic thin ribbon fedora style, with a 2-5/8″ brim.
This vintage fedora was custom made in the 1960s from pure beaver felt, and originally sold for fifty dollars, making it extremely expensive at the time. I have owned many 7X clear beaver Stetsons from this era and the dress weight beaver felt has a very similar feel. It is a 7-1/4 and has a 2-3/8″ brim and a 5-1/4″ crown.

This vintage fedora was made by Borsalino in the 1950s. This was the first real hat I bought, about nine and a half years ago. It’s been sitting in a box for the last seven or so of that, so I suppose it’s time for it to join the store stock up for sale. It is made of lightweight brown fur felt, and likely was sold as a roller in one of Borsalino’s triangular hat boxes when new. It is an export model, evidenced by the English on the sweatband. It has a moderately narrow ribbon with an elastic wind string and narrow binding. The hat is a 7-1/4, with a 2-3/4″ brim and a 5-5/8″ crown.
This vintage fedora was made in the 1950s and was sold by F.R. Tripler & Co of Madison Avenue, New York City. It is light brown fur felt, with a wide black ribbon with square bow knot. The crown is nice and straight for this era, and the hat has a very lighweight felt. The brim measures 1-7/8″ and the crown measures 5-1/8″.
