    This is an old post from 2013, page 3 of this thread I think. Is this a VS hat? If so what is the name of that style? Thanks.

    Just a fedora, pecan felt with steel ribbon and reddish highlight in the knot. Diamond bash on the crown. Maybe Art will chime in and say if there's a name attached to this one, or just a custom order that, clearly, he can recreate. Pecan is very versatile color.

    yes, this is one of mine but it has no name, simply a pecan fedora with diamond crease scooterz. I made at least 12 for Rabbit over the years, first class client.

    I sure hate moving, Art. I hope this move goes as seamless as possible for you.

    Art maybe you should name that pecan hat "Justa" Fedora? It looks great I will have to search Rabbit's posts and see if there are more pics.

    I hadn't noticed St,,, good catch. I feel like I've been here forever gents. I was invited by MK in Aug 2003 but had to wait until my father passed in November to actually join as I was traveling every other week from San Fran to Oregon to help care for him ( dementia) . Now, this is my extended family. This is the place I first asked if I should start making hats for the public, where my first design was posted and was sold out in 36 hours, the first taste of what could happen when you follow your dreams. Yes, I had always wanted to have a hat shop when I retired the first time, had collected ribbons and equipment for 15 yrs prior to retiring from my Masonry career, but until the Lounge came around it was only my dream, not reality. Now, I can barely remember those days, the transition from being known for my stonework to being known for my hats was so natural. Who knew? I owe my career to this great place. Nobody would have ever heard of me and my passion had it not been for the guys here and I have tried every day for the last 11 years to make my work worthy of the trust placed in me. Here's to another 13 years!!!!
