    Thanks.

    It's a Borsalino and would you believe it, it's over 70 years old!

    Beautiful hat and the color is probably the most versatile for a hat. Borsalinos reputation was built on making hats like yours, it's a shame that their quality has fallen off in recent years. Enjoy!

    would be helpful to see it as worn; sometimes it is difficult to judge a hat/ comment on a fedora unless you can see it on the noggin.

    Nice looking hat. Yes, I believe it's that old. Most of that hats made by borsalino since the early 80s are not top quality.

    beautiful hat.
    the crown seems a bit high for my taste.
    Maybe it just needs a bit of shaping.

    I own a hat but never wear it since it goes with almost nothing I own and I'm fussy about my "perfect tousle" being messed up.

    Have your wife take the picture. Or, use a mirror.

    I'm afraid Ute might not be able to let HER wife post pictures...

    That's only if Ute is her real name, if not my apologies.

    But then agian Marlene Dietrich wore hats like that...
