    No way! I saw his first tags on this forum, and they were not that crude...

    I heard back from someone at Optimo and they said it looked to be one of their roll up traveler hats.

    I had an Optimo from their first year in business. The logo was different so I emailed Graham and he replied very quickly confirming it was one of his. I recently sold the hat in the classifieds.

    So I bought the hat and it's beautiful!

    I've never held felt this soft before, and it is very light so it must be the featherweight. It also came with it's box!

    It is way too small for me so my big decision is if I should keep it and bask in it's beauty or sell it to someone who will wear it. Leaning towards the later but time enough for that.

    Here's some pix

    Wow - I would never have bought the hat from that one photo you posted. It looks great, sorry about the size though!
    Cheers!

    Congratulations on that beauty, ptj. Way to stick with it!

    I'd stare at it for a spell, myself. On the other hand, if it were MY size, I'd say sell it now!!
