A high priced hat when new, this Borsalino didn’t make its journey through time the best. ‘The sweatband had gone kind of crispy, the hat had lost its oval block and turned into a circle, and the mink fur felt had a weird greasy feel to it. When I got it, it had a fitted vinyl rain cover.
I got this one direct from Italy. It has a nice fur felt body, but a cloth sweatband, no liner, and no markings whatsoever. So a high end body, but a low end hat. Because of the construction of this one, it was easy to roll and pack.
