    Hi

    I finally got a new computer and am able to post pictures. I ordered this hat from Mike Moore in the early summer and wore it a lot during the summer and fall. It's a 100% bunny fur felt hat. The felt is of cowboy hat thickness. I like it a lot and wear it quite a bit even in the winter, although it is a little bright.







    The hat is shaped like the 1898 Spanish American War hat. Mike Moore suggested the copper colored ribbon, which sets off the bone colored hat really well. This was originally intended as a beater, but it looks way too good for that. Check Spanish American war books and you'll see this hat shape with the same ribbon. This hat has a 3 inch brim, and a 5.75 inch open crown. The crease is copied from one of the hats from the Rough-rider movie starring Tom Berenger as Teddy Roosevelt, Sam Elliot, Brian Keith and the Gunny.

    That is beautiful! Thanks for taking the time to post! How wide is that brim? I'd like to compare dimensions with my wide brimmed Gus.

    3 inch brim, 5.75 inch open crown, I think the ribbon is an inch. The model(s) for the hat are in the Campaign hats section I originally was going to get a double layer of felt behind a couple of grommets for a stampede string, but since the hat was dressier than originally planned I didn't do that. Mike Moore took a LOT of extra time and effort to get what I was after, and I really enjoy the hat.

    Very nice, "61. Will you post a head shot? I'm thinking that would look really sharp. I like it.

    HI Bob

    I'll get it as soon as I can. My capability holding the camera myself isn't too great. I like the way the hat looks, but my 24 year old son doesn't like it for some reason. I was in Central Illinois over Xmas, but didn't get out much. I DID make it to the Caddyshack in exciting Farmersville IL for their half Fried chicken ($7.00).

    I got the idea for the crease for the crown, not the brim here:
