    Thanks Ale - i must say this is one of the nicest hats I have. Your VS is looking good with that new ribbon. One day I'm going to have to learn how to thread a needle so I can join in this fun!

    Cheers, AL - fantastic shots of your Caxton today. That really is a fine hat.

    Thanks, Ray - much appreciated

    Thanks a lot Jeff. This hat is a very nice grey that is just to the warm side of neutral.

    Thank you, Eric. Yep, TT tomorrow. Actually I think I'm going to give TT a rest after this week - I only have three of Tony's hats and don't want to bore everyone. I'm thinking that FF (Fawcett Friday) would be a good idea - maybe more would join in since there are more VS owners here I think.

    ArtLites soon too!

    HT - nice shot of the FP in the snow.

    BJ - always nice to see the Beaver Brand, super hat.

    T-Rick - cool Whippet today. Is that a recent acquisition?
    Cheers!

    Yes Sir, first hat I've bought in awhile. Got it for a decent price too, listed as mint and
    pretty much is. Picked it up last week on eBay.

    Hope these 2 posts are coherent, posting from my phone. Great group of hats today too guys!
    Regards,
    T Rick

    AL, that Caxton holds a beautiful crumple. Great felt and great hat.

    I hope you will post some photos of Ryan's show.

    High school musical weekend for us too. I was wearing black and a gray 8 panel cap, but everyone in the house had their eyes on the Queen. This was Lily's curtain call for Once Upon a Mattress.

    And she is beautiful, as always. I'm sure that the curtain call was well deserved.

    A sincere thanks for all the very kind comments, gentlemen!


    Manfred: I will happily pass along your congratulations to Ryan. Ryan is a natural on stage, and the incredibly hard work the entire cast and crew lavished upon the production resulted in an unforgettable week of delightful shows. I am glad you like the crease I have on my Caxton. This is a Bold Look fedora which likely dates to the late '40s, and its generous proportions seem to work best with a more dramatic crease, at least to my eyes.


    Ale: Indeed it is. Good eye. This Caxton has one of the most well executed and thick felted edges of any of my hats, including the Cavanaghs! I appreciate your comment on being involved. Cannot imagine it any other way...


    Jeff: Ryan will appreciate your congratulations and I will pass them along to him. I am on week two now in post-production and it will take me another week at the least to complete the project as I have envisioned. The entire cast and crew of over one hundred kids as well as their teachers, will receive a DVD with high-res photo slideshow synced to a soundtrack of their performance, as well as the video of the performance and the raw photos. I hope this will be an important memento which will bring back fond memories for a long, long time. Appreciate your comments on the Caxton crease...it is one of my favorites.


    EggHead: I also really like this shade of grey. Caxton made some exquisite hats back in the day and I only wish I could find more of them. This Beaver Twenty is among my favorite and finest hats.


    B.J.: Looks like you are ready for Spring!


    Ordinary Guy: I count my blessings every day to have Ryan and Lydia snap photos for me wherever we happen to be. They are always so understanding and patient...except when temperatures drop below 20F and the winds are blowing!


    T Rick: Good looking Whippet you are sporting today.


    David: Appreciate your kind words!


    Alan: Working on posting some photos to FEDORAS AFIELD, hopefully later this week. Lily looks regal and beaming with joy! We love the dramas and comedies, but there is something magical and uplifting about musicals which makes them irresistible. I still have all of the many songs from 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying ' swirling around in my head. I reckon that watching the tech and dress rehearsals as well as all four performances will do that to you.

    Sure does. I'm still trying to wash those tunes from last year right out of my head... not working.

    Thanks AL and thank you BR!
