    Nice collection.

    Do most people switch that many hats?
    How many wear a Resistol 20x or higher?

    By the weekend I'll try to do the same.

    No, they don't. But here on the Lounge, you will find that many active members do have a great many hats.

    fmw,
    That's a VERY NICE selection of Westerns and Country hats ! I especially like the two Akubras Do you have any closer shots of the Brown Flinders? It looks to have a different crease than the one it comes with and that hat band looks to be a braided Kangaroo?

    I call it a Flinders because that is what is written on the sweatband. It appears to have been an exclusive. At any rate, you see it in its original brand new state - except for the braided kangaroo leather band, of course. Here's an image with the original hat band.

    Most people don't own that many hats and I'm a small timer compared to many on Fedora Lounge. It gets even worse because these are just the country and western hats. I have another bunch of city hats and yet another bunch of straws. Actually, I normally keep 8 hats in my rotation because that is the number of pegs I have on the utility room wall. I change them from time to time as the whim strikes me. Look forward to seeing your westerns.

    My only true western and these are pics before I got it refurbed at Peter Bros. My father bought it back in the late 60s and wore it for about 10 years 'till he gave it to me. It's a 4x Stetson and I braided the Kangaroo band and used some tail hair from a mare I owned for the tassels. He wore it with the brown cord band it came with and this is the crease he wore it with. it's got a wear/moth hole up in the top of the pinch but I dont mind, gives it "atmosphere" to me I need to get some more current pics soon.

    It looks like you are fan of the 3 1/2" brim. Me too. The stagecoach has a great crease. Did you put it there?
