I posted this earlier in the funny/strange/interesting video thread, but in case you haven't seen it it's appropriate here! :)


Wow. Thanks for posting. Fascinating how many extensive steps in the process. I bought a Borsalino from Primo about 12 years ago. They were very cool. Despite some fading from the California sun, it's held up great.  Ready for a new one but it held its own.

$385 plus shipping.  For beaver that's a good deal. Beaver is much more rain resistant than rabbit, the standard felt used for most fedoras.

The correct link is www.thefedoralounge.com
Wow, do these companies like Borsalino breed rabbits..  that must take a heck a lot of rabbits to kill for so many hats.

Dare I ask, is it worth it?  Are we elevating the sparks [of these rabbits] to Kedusha by wearing these hats for davening etc?  Can we not do the same with cotton?  Or is this זה א-לי ואנוהו?

I think that for rabbit fur you do not need to kill them, you shear it like sheep. CMIIW

FTFY.

I'm not sure you're right, but you must mean that.

I happen to be on the market for a hat. I called a Hat Store, they told me they don't have my size, bec. they have a shortage now, bec. Borsalino used to give them the better grade material - hats, and the past few shipments they sent them the lesser quality material - hats, so they refused shipment a few times already, hoping Borsalino will start sending them the better stuff again. So from what this store is saying, it seems like there is different quality Borsalinos.

Tell them to open a store on our side of the river. (BTW, why "taka" don't they open a store in Lakewood?).

Does that Hat Store happen to have a name?

Can I revive this thread and ask people where they buy black hats other than HatBox, Bencraft and CH?

Pierre Cardin is supposed to come out with a black hat similar to the bors.
I saw them advertising in one of the Jewish papers/magazines, don't remember which.
Anyone with feedback on it?

I understood that it wont be out for some time, but I saw them advertising it. The ad
said it can be found in better hat stores...I doubt they would write that if it can not be found
yet in any hat stores, so I am guessing that it is in fact available. Hence the feedback request. Make sense?
