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 like the unusual color of the liner on this one, along with its graphics. 1960s hats were good for that. It’s also unusual to see stingy brims like this with a bound brim- usually you saw welts. This one has the most characters I’ve ever seen stamped on the sweatband.
