  1. Such a great color, Michael. You're a lucky man to have a non-silverbelly OR.

    Thanks Fruno. I gather from looking at the catalogs posted here that they made only silverbelly for many grades on most years. I have a Pilgrim thin ribbon in silverbelly so I was looking for variety. I'm not sure if they called this light gray or dark gray or something else altogether?

  4. It might even be an old version of Caribou. I'm not sure when that color debuted, but I think it's been around for a while.

    In the mid-90s, Stetson offered their Temple in "Caribou"; I saw it at Meyer the Hatter. Never bought one, as I was uninterested in a gray hat then. Now I think a mid-gray or light gray OR would be fantastic.

    I'd guess early to mid '50s... more mid

    Thanks Anthony. Am I correct in guessing this is taupe? The brim is larger than my other one, seems to be 2 7/8". And it weighs a bit more than the Royal, this one being 127 g and the Royal 116 g. The material covering the tip seems different too, more like cellophane than plastic.

  10. Nice pick p, Michael. Congratulations. Now fix that wind trolley.:D

    The one and only Caribou I own has heavy bluish/purplish tones to it's gray color. I think it's from ~2010, and I picked it up at the Garland Outlet a couple of years ago. My experience with the color is minimal.

    Thanks Fruno. I think I have it fixed. I knew it wasn't right, but it looked like someone had tied a knot in it, so I didn't want to look to closely. Fortunately, that wasn't the case. Do you have the instructions around here for your lampshade shrink? This is my size, but could use a touch of tightening up.

    Thanks Hatto. What colors in a fair isle would you recommend with this? Ha ha.
    I think the roll is over Bob, just wanted to satisfy my curiosity. Of course if a nice dark brown one showed up locally I wouldn't turn it down.

    Thanks Fruno. It is a versatile color range. Currently I'm really liking the gray.

    Thanks Anthony. Can you tell I like hat photos?
