    Lovely hats.

    Another little push down at the back IMHO would make it even better.

    Link, The brim on the sombrero is 4". That is the main difference between the older hats and the new. This would be considered a very narrow brim today; most modern hats have 4 1/2" to 4 3/4" brims.

    I wasn't satisfied with the crown but wasn't sure why. I'll try your suggestion. Thanks

    David, Thank you, I'm sure that I'll enjoy the Artlite.

    BRGordon, congratulations on your new Silverbelly. If the crease doesn't hold by itself, steam or wetness will solve the problem, with sprinkled distilled water having the advantage of allowing way more time for shaping. Either of these options can be used to make the crease sharper.

    Those are highly interesting detaills, especially the part about the renovations. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Art-Lite colours

    Could someone direct me to a list of the colours available in Art-lite bodies?

    I would e-mail Art himself, but the time he would use answering would take him away from completing another of his creations.

    and I wouldn't want to delay anyone's hat!

    Don, My understanding is that Winchester is not suppling any new light weight bodies, so Art is limited to those which he currently has. At the time I ordered my Artlite he had silverbelly, silvermist, dark moss, powder blue, and sahara. To be sure you really need to contact Art.

    i hope that this is helpful.

    I emailed Art last week to ask about lightweight bodies in silverbelly. He said he had two at that time. He may still have the other one available. I did not ask about any other colors.
