Robin - Those linen fedoras are pretty bad ass. Even I might be able to pull them off. Who is the maker on those and where were they purchased?
I don't know the manufacturer, but they were made in the US for Engineered Garments. Hejfina and Barneys carry them online, and Odin might have some available in store. For reference, a size large is about a 7 3/8 which fits me.
To be honest they're not the best hats you could buy for $100, but if you can get one on sale they're not bad at all.
Thanks, and sorry for the late reply - I believe my US size is about 10.75D (I wear a mix of 10.5 and 11).
With thicker socks and the straps at their tightest (or second-tightest) setting, the 44.5 monks fit me fine, though if I bought another Vass U-last open-lacing type shoe, I'd probably choose size 44.
