Brown Borsalino thin ribbon fedora

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401054901272

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.

Stetson 4X Stetson Open Road

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272040409696

This hat was made by the John B. Stetson Company.  It is their iconic Open Road style, with a thin ribbon, narrow binding and a fedora flanged brim. This one has the model name marked on the reorder tag rather than the sweatband, is made of heavier weight modern felt, has the Stetson Authentic X hologram sticker still on the sweatband, and is a 4X quality felt.  While the reorder tag puts the brim at 2-3/4″, it measures out to 2-7/8″.

5X Beaver Resistol cowboy hat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401002609427
This vintage cowboy hat was made in the 1950s for the CR Anthony Company from XXXX Beaver fur felt. From the style of the sweatband, the “Hand Creased” logo and the style of the reorder tag (partly missing) under the sweatband, it’s safe to say that this was made by Resistol as a house label hat for Anthony. It measures a 7-1/8
