Thanks for that! I didn't think there were too many hat nerds on this board, but I'm glad someone liked it! smile.gif I know you wear hats, and I'm always checking them out (often fairly cheap), so if you're looking for something or want me to keep an eye out for your size, let me know! All of our hats are sized in cm (aside from a Stetson I have that was made for the American market), so getting a good measurement or using a size chart would be handy.

Today was a pretty good day in my book. Details on your late local news (WITH pics, hopefully!)

thanks for that info. i just picked up a Cremieux lambskin jacket on the bay for a stupid amount (like $20 shipped), mainly because I wanted something right away. I was really surprised when it arrived that it was really well made and terrific leather.

Thanks for this guyver, I did not know this. I'm going to give it a try.

It's not to hard. 56 is a Brit 6 7/8 and an American 7. 57 is a Brit 7 and a US 7 1/8, and most hats with a US or British size have the euro sized labeled as well, so it's not hard to figure out your size.

Oh, and that is a lovely hat.

My dude.  I sold a black label Armani suit for $129 on zebay.  I probably could've squeezed out more.  It was "dated" as it was unvented, but they probably have some models in this most recent collection that are unvented.  It's not necessarily a dated detail; it's just not in vogue.  I suggest you never leave black label behind unless it's shredded.  The name will help it sell.

I suppose it's a bit easier than I imagined! I find that I am in between sizes, whether it's American or EU. I prefer to round up as it's a simple fix to put a bit of foam/cloth inside the sweat band. Thanks for the compliment, I knew there would be people to recognize it happy.gif

As an FYI, as the hat wearing-generation dies, we're at the end of what's been a bumper crop of hats in thrifts/flea markets. That being the case, if you're willing to invest in the futures market (in a thrift manner), start grabbing quality hats you find. I'm sure that in 5-10 years, they'll become incredibly scarce. They're certainly worth the investment if you think you will ever wear one or whether you will want to sell them at an incredible markup biggrin.gif

We've lost a lot of hatmakers in the past few years and we're about around 12-15 hat stores in the city, I'm sure down significantly from recent history. shog[1].gif

Also found yesterday before the Barbour coat was this vintage LL Bean masterpiece (pretty sure not available, we'll see). If this had said RRL on the inside, I probably would have gotten a month's rent for it.

I half expected that I'd need to knife fight my way out of hipsterville with this under my arm, but luckily that was avoided. Weighs a ton, big metal patterned buttons. Better shots when I bring it in from the car (it's raining and well, you know, I might melt or something).

 

Re: the Barbour, anyone familiar with this logo? Scuse the thread.

M ranch party? Was this a prize at a party at a ranch? 1%er party favor? Trying to make sense of it. It's embroidered tone on tone on the flap of the pocket on the left side. It's so dark and low on the jacket that I didn't even see it last night. I don't know why I thought it was fake, must have been in denial - it has that waxwear smell/feel. Also, I swore it was black, but the areas where the wax didn't take/flex spots show that it's most certainly brown.

I'm curious.. since most of you pull in such great hauls, I'm assuming some of it doesn't fit you. Do you pick up anything nice, regardless of size, and just sell it later if it doesn't fit? Or do you go out only looking for clothes for yourself?
