    Neo,
    I'll get noggin shots later. Steel grey is my new favorite . I'm wondering if there might be a general interest in a "Show off your Bow" thread.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing it for a long time to come. Congratulations on a fine hat.
    Thank you David. I know you have a special place for Tumwater Hats.

    Found a pic of some hats I am liking

    Can anyone tell me if the steel grey Tumwater pictured in this thread is the same color as the grey hat, second shelf, far left?

    What colors are the grey hats on the far right, first on the top shelf and then on the second shelf?

    I have a Stetson in caribou and thinking a second grey hat is what I want and do not want one that is so close in color though.

    I have a Stetson in Caribou, and IMHO, it's very different than the Steel Grey color.

    Get you some swatches from a custom hatter. Art sends them with his conformer. Looking at colors on a PC monitor isn't going to help you much. Buckaroo & VS as well as other hatters get their felt bodies from Winchester & except for some proprietary colors, are all the same.

    I did see Steel in Buckaroo's shop and felt it was bluish grey, and while it was sharp, I think if that is the hat that is the far left, second row, my eye is drawn to the top shelf, far right and middle shelf, far right, with I think the top shelved one being a great color. What color Is that? The middle one I think is granite and is most like caribou as far as color

    Memph, a good place to see the colours (bearing in mind that most people's monitors are not calibrated) is the set of swatches that Ed Wiser recently updated to Art's Vintage Silhouettes site.

    The Steel is the same felt for Art, Tony and most of the custom hat guys. I have a Steel hat from Tony. It is very much a blue/grey felt.
    Cheers!

    Really beautiful, aught12! Congrats. I bumped a "Hat Adornments" thread for you, if you feel like posting yours there.

    Very nice aught12. Am I the only one that thinks that vintage ribbon looks like modern carbon fiber?

    Hi

    I bought a bone colored hat because before it get's pounced, it looks darker. Definitely look both online and at the swatches. I like the Steel Gray, but I bought a Charcoal with a blue band that I'm VERY happy with. Normal wild Tony B ribbon in subdued colors. Pictures are back in this thread somewhere.

    Later
