To Determine Your Hat Size

 
Measure your head, in inches, just above your ear line, coming across your forehead.

Divide the number of inches by pi  (3.1415) to determine your U.S. size - 7 1/8 for example. ( 22 1/2" divided by pi = 7.16 or hat size 7 1/8 [ 7.125] plus a little.

If you have a tape in centimeters, simply measure and note the number of centimeters.

The Europeans make it so simple! In this case the 22 1/2 " head would be a 57.
(22.5 x 2.54 cm/inch = 57).

Each centimeter = 1/8 of a head size.

7 = 56 7 1/8  = 57
7 1/4 = 58 7 3/8 = 59
and so on....

Brief History of the Borsalino Hat

Established in 1857. some consider Borsalino as the finest hats made in the world. Borsalino is synonymous with style and elegance.

Borsalino produces their own felt from the finest Belgian lapin fur at their factory in Alessandria, Italy. The felt Borsalino hats are still produced today just as they once were one hundred years ago.

Giuseppe Borsalino, after visiting Italy and France to learn the secrets of the trade, set up the first artisan workshop for the production of felt hats. When Giuseppe Borsalino died in 1900, the production had reaches 750.000 hats, 60% of which were destined for export.

Teresio Borsalino succeeded to his father in the family business. His success lasted some decades. Then, in the 1940s, business declined as the hat was no longer a part of everyday dress. However, the fame of its trademark remained untouched all over the world, and the name Borsalino soon became part of fashion history. In 1970 it even inspired a famous and successful film: "Borsalino", of course. In 1986 the factory moved to a new site, more efficient and modern, in the suburbs of Alessandria, whereas the offices of the old site not only house the new University of Alessandria, but also a piece of the Borsalino history: a precious museum dedicated to the history of the hat.

Jewish Wedding Traditions

A traditional Jewish wedding is full of meaningful rituals, giving expression to the deepest significance and purpose of marriage. These rituals symbolize the beauty of the relationship of husband and wife, as well as their obligations to each other and to the Jewish people.
In traditional Jewish literature marriage is actually called kiddushin, which translates as "sanctification" or "dedication." "Sanctification,".
Shidduch - The very first stage of a traditional Jewish marriage, is the shidduch, or matchmaking.
When the families have met, and the young couple have decided to marry, the families usually announce the occasion with a small reception, known as a vort.
Ketuvah - At the reception itself, the first thing usually done is the completion, signing and witnessing of the ketuvah, or marriage contract.
Bedekin - After the signing of the ketuvah, which is usually accompanied by some light snacks and some hard liquor for the traditional lechaims (the Jewish salute when drinking, which means, "to life!"), the groom does the bedekin, or "veiling."
Chuppah - The next stage is known as the chuppah, or "canopy." The chuppah is a embroidered cloth stretched or supported over four poles, and is often carried by attendants to the location where the ceremony will take place. It is meant to symbolize the home which the couple will build together. Embroidered cloth usually used is a tallit.
Kiddushin - The groom, now takes a plain gold ring and places it on the finger of the bride, and recites in the presence of two witnesses, "Behold you are sanctified (betrothed) to me with this ring, according to the Law of Moses and Israel."
Sheva Brachos - After this, the sheva brachos, or seven blessings, are recited, either by one Rabbi, or at many weddings a different blessing is given to various people the families wish to honor.
Cheder yichud - Now that the couple are married they are accompanied by dancing guests to the cheder yichud, "the room of privacy."
