    So what is the approximate date on this hat? The vendor, Charles P. Shipley Saddlery and Mercantile, closed the doors in 1972.

    Thanks, and I hope this is an appropriate question for this thread.

    That's the perfect use. I'm saying late 60s. This thread on dating Stetsons by liner may help. (edit: Yours doesn't seem to be there, but there's no reason not to include it.)

    Thanks, Lefty. I'll post a picture when it arrives.

    From the thread, I see that the hat is leather. Generally, almost every hat on this site is fur felt, with a few wool felt hats here and there. That makes it a bit tougher.

    What do you mean by restore - clean and block (give it shape)?

    that hat is very stiff, it is leather as you said but feels like one of those costume cardboard hats, and needs cleaned.

    Hat color

    Hi I have a black suit with a classic cut that I intend to have to a 30s gathering, I also have a brown hat (Indiana Jones style) Swedish maker, that is very 30s too. My question is if there are any rules regarding hat colour and suit colour, or if it is mixable after wearers taste?

    Dear Mr. Leftwell,

    This thread has come along in the nick of time. My wife and I are having a bit of a tiff, and I'm wondering whether you might be able to help us sort things out. She is hosting a tea for the Women's Auxiliary tomorrow, and believes that the cucumber sandwiches should be round. I, on the other hand, believe that they should be square. Obviously, in either case, we both believe that the crusts should be removed. In any event, round or square? Can you please help us sort this out?

    Yours faithfully,
    James the Lid

    Dear Mr. Lid,

    In the spirit of compromise and goodwill, why not provide separate trays. One can display round and the other square sandwiches. Just make sure that the square ones are cut on the diagonal for dainty munching.
