I'm no felt expert, but am I correct to assume that the 100% beaver felt that Art and Steve use for their hats is considered a heavy "winter weight" felt?
I ask because I notice in so many of your vintage hat pictures here that the creases and dents have a certain look to them that I can't seem to duplicate in my custom 100% beaver hats (not a complaint, just something I've noticed). Is this due to the thickness/density of the felt, or was some other type of fur used in a 1940's dress hat?
Can the 100% beaver be made in a "summer weight"?
How does the felt on say, a vintage Stetson Open Road, compare in thickness and weight to this modern 100% beaver?
