This one is by Gottfried Kiniger of Sillian, Austria (near the Italian Alpine boarder). He makes he is own felt (see video clip above) so a bit out of the ordinary. I visited his shop on a recent trip through Austria and I picked up this natural velour hat. It has some Seal Velour qualities and came with as nice open crown block. The sweat, ribbon and liner quality aren't the best but they are functional. My guess is Gottfried and his wife are over 80 years old.

Awesome Steve! Did you take some more pictures?

 

What else did you see in Europe?

 

I went to Switzerland and Austria. I visted Geneva, Bern and Zurich in Switzerland. I went to Innsbruck and took the train through the Italian Alps to Sillian which was awesome. I also visited a town named Lienz where I picked up this new old stock Alpen long hair. Had a super time!
