    Tom....

    That Pilgrim is Sweet, I still haven't found one in my size yet. You found yourself a beaut.

    As far as that green Whippet goes.....that's the 2nd time it was listed. It didn't even sell the 1st time around. I passed on in it because of the Ribbon replacement...........

    Indeed, the replacement ribbon was the reason I passed initially. The second time around my strict criteria mysteriously vanished!

    Almost certainly fur felt, and a high quality hat.

    "This auction features a derby style hat that insider label states "FIELDCRAFT" "The Store for Men Marshall Field & Company Chicago" The inside band is marked "Marshall Field & Company" No size is listed, but the circumfence of the hat is just over 21" This hat is in good condition and comes in a "Champ Hats" box. Box is in fair/good condition."

    Looks like a never-bashed fedora to me, but the image quality is a bit lacking.

    Unhappy

    anyone have a ggod method for removing nasty smoke smell from a hat? My 12 yr old son just bought his 1st vintage cavanagh on ebay. There was no mention of smoke smell in the listing. The thing reeks like old cigars. I,m a die hard non smoker so I'm at a loss for what to use. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Stick it outside to air for couple of days, steam it, then put it back out for a couple more. That should take care of all or most of it, at least it has in my experience.

    I would use [and have used] the coleman fuel ,white gas method of cleaning.
    You can run a search here but the lowdown is take the hat - put it in a bucket with a lid - pour a gallon or so of Coleman fuel over the hat in the bucket - put on the lid - shake it up a few times over a 3 -6 -24 hour period [according to how bad the hat is] - take the hat out - hang it up
    DO ALL OF THIS OUTSIDE!!!!!!
    I have done this to many of my hats with no ill effect at all.

    Does anyone have experience with Werner Hiton hats? I am guessing he is a custom hatter. The hat is one size too small so I am stretching it

    Sorry, it's always a little bit sad to me when I see a beautiful hat in my size headed for the stretcher.

    Great buy on a sweet lid though!
    Yes please
    Cream no sugar
    Thank you
