    Thanks to RBH's generosity, I now have a hat with which I can petition for membership in the Buckaroo Bonanza!

    This arrived in the mail while I was on the road:

    Rusty, I just looked at the pictures above and this hat looks an awful lot like "The Covington." Is that what I've got?

    Yes that is the former Covington!
    The crown was a little lower than I like, but from the photos you had posted I thought this would look good on you. I was right!!!
    Hope you enjoy it it!

    I think if you named it the Covington, it's still the Covington.

    Another Buckaroo

    This one arrived today. I found the crown ribbon as I was looking through a box of ribbons at Mike's Buckaroo Hatters shop in Covington last July. I draped the ribbon over a moss green hat from Mike's fedora wall, and realized it was a match made for me to wear. From that came this:







    Thank you, Mike, for another great looking addition to my little hat family. This one's a beauty.

    Thank you, Rusty and CB.

    Mike is really a heck of a guy. I called him to thank him for the hat this afternoon, and he said he is always nervous to send a new hat out wondering if the client will like it or not. I don't think he needs to worry about that too much.

    A sure sign of an honorable craftsman.

    As every hand crafter knows, no matter how good the piece, it could always be better. The upside is that that knowledge keeps one going, knowing that he will never make the perfect hat, but the more he works at it, the closer he gets.

    It's a great hat, Bob.

    Thanks, Tony. Your saying that is a big and well deserved compliment to Mike's work. You know your way around a great hat very well yourself. I consider myself fortunate to have two examples of your fine work as well.

    I have a deal for you and Mike. You guys keep making them better and better and I'll keep buying them and wearing them for you.
