    I took a (cheap) shot on this ePrey furry 1970s monster. because it was in great condition and presumably reworkable. I am glad I did.


    After peeping under the side-saddle feather head-dress and discovering the buried braided leather cord and getting out the dog-grooming tools, I instantly transformed a pimp-wanna-be into an upstanding Western man's 5X Stetson that has TRANSFORMED the way I look and feel in cowboy hats.



    I am not trying to be dramatic about this and want to think about this some more (as I have a killer 100% natural beaver Dorer Cattleman inbound). But, the realization of this personal viewpoint is all because I am still new to western hats and have stuck with dark colors for winter. However, this pale furry thingy, after its grooming and putting on a scarf to tie it together, has yielded the most comfortable reflection I have had yet. I think this is due to my own coloration, the hat's warm color and even the tall crown. Whatever, I wanted to report it here, as there isn't another soul on this earth to share this with....

    This self-revelation comes on the heels of responding to several "my first fedora" and this "color is difficult" hand-wringing threads over the past few days, where I offered "free advice" to other even-newer Loungers. So, excuse the crappy reflective shot into a 175-year old mirror, (I'll get out the tripod soon enough, certainly for the Dorer), but I would like any appraisal you guys might have to offer.

    I think brushing has helped it a lot. 100 times better than it started.
    John,


    No matter where you are.....That's the place to be.

    Yup.

    What's more, you looked pleased as punch to be under it, and that's what counts.

    I was the second bidder and got a chance to buy it when the winner bailed. I declined due to size. Did it fit?

    Thanks, Steve!
    Ale, yes it did fit, but was a bit tight. It is actually a very high crown, wide brim hat. I am stretching it lightly now,
    even though it is a true 7 on the tag. I will have to see how it looks when all is said and done, it may dwarf my head a bit.

    Finally a pic of my first fedora. It is a Stetson Chatham. I already love it!
