Borsalino- Italian luxury hats

From 1857 to today, the Borsalino hat is a symbol of costume and is famour for quality and style. The Borsalino hats try to keep all the charm and class from last century’s fashion, while still blending in with today’s styles and fashions
The rich and famous as well as celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Leonardo Di Caprio, Denzel Washington and John Malkovich are immortalized wearing the unique style of the living legend of the most prestigious brand of hats in the world.Made of fine fur felt (rabbit or hare) it passes through around fifty production phases and it takes an average of seven weeks’ work to finish every hat. This long-established process has been passed down from generation to generation and its secret lies in the rigorous sequence of stages alternated with machines and hand-working stages which determine the quality and control of the finished product. With the exception of the "preparation" of the fur which long ago used to take place in the internal "cutting" department, today the hats undergo two processing phases: the "white work" (that is, the preparation of the blanks) for creating the felt shape and the "black work" for finishing and dressing the hat. These stages gives the hat the superior quality which distinguishes a Borsalino from other hats.The company currently produces a wide variety of products such as hats, ties, clothing, watches, perfumes and even old fashioned bicycles, and the company tries to keep all the charm and class from last century's fashion.
Today, Borsalino owns sixteen single-brand sales points in Italy and one in Paris; moreover, the brand is also sold in the most elegant boutiques and in the most prestigious department stores across the world!
