    Greg -- Love that Dorer and the crease you put in it.

    I gave $12 for this older Stetson 3X along with a Rockmount Ranchwear woolly. They arrived today.

    Any thoughts on the age of the Stetson? Early 1950s? Later?

    Bob, I'd say early 50's due to the liner and size tag. Hope others will chime in. I have a 3X with an embroidered Last Drop Liner that can't be seen through the oilcloth/onionskin tip protector due to clouding that I don't know how to clean w/o cutting it out. Looking for help on that. Great finds, wish they fit us.

    Thanks for the compliments on the Dorer.

    Absolutely not. That's alcohol abuse.

    Thanks Greg and M! My wife tried it on an it fit ... go figure. She usually wears 7-1/4, but has a 7-3/8 Akubra so you never know.

  10. Anybody ever thought about how cool it would be to have a calendar with favorite Hats on it ?

    Bob that baby is super sweet ! Now we need one . Wonder if the 7 53 number is when it was made ?

    Greg love that Dorer ! I'm not a bling guy either , but I like that Hat !

    Thanks, Joao. Needed something to match the boot stitching.

    Thank you, Michael. The bling would be long gone if it weren't Sterling. I like the calendar idea.

    I thought the same thing at first, but I think it is a production lot number and just coincidental. I'll defer to the experts...

    Been working on a garage sale hat that cost $5
    It is a Texas Hatters Chisholm 1. It had glue all around where a hat band had been as well as glue on the brim
    Brim had been cut also. After spending hours flaking glue off, I found discoloration to the felt. I pounced the brim and cleaned up the cut brim. The tall crown and short brim looked out of proportion, so I put a telescope crease on it. Not a style I normally wear but I may actually wear this one.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
