Collecting Hats is Serious Business - Borsalino

For as long as we have been collecting and selling fabulous vintage hats, we have been on a serious lookout for stellar men's hats. Finding a vintage hat from a world class hat maker such as Borsalino that is in excellent or (shall we dream) mint condition is no easy feat. This is why it was so amazing to discover through a shop window this bottle green hat of mystery on a misty morning down by a river. We can imagine that it has had quite a life, maybe it was worn by a private detective or modern Casanova...

This is a still from the fantastic Ferragamo Men's Fall 2011 runway show in Milan. The models donned gorgeous Borsalino hats in jewel toned colors that looked so rich and luxurious. We can't wait for fall!
