    What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

    It's been a while since I actually snapped a photo and logged in, but if it comes through, today I was wearing my reblocked former Stetson New York. Never did get the brim finished quite right.

    The Conversion Corral

    Not a significant conversion, but I wanted to turn this silverbelly Stetson Premiere Stratoliner I picked up as a souvenir on a trip into something more to my liking. I had intended to cut out the sweatband and reblock it slightly taller to take the bring width down to 1 ¼”, but the starting...

    Yet Another My Custom Tailor Suit

    Thanks. The hat is a custom by Tony at Tumwater hats. 2 1/8" brim. 6" or slightly taller crown (open). A creamy off white (silverbelly?). Definitely the best hat in my collection.

    Post New Hats Here!

    Picked it up today at Heimie's Haberdashery in St. Paul. I've never actually bought a hat in person before!

    Stetson New York LE – Excellent Quality. Actual 5 ¾” open crown. 2 ¾” welted brim. (Stats state 5 ½” and 2 5/8” respectively). Phantom Grey. I’m not used to wearing such a wide brim, but I figured I’d give it a try. Given the crown on my last Stetson, the Nostalgia, shrank considerably, the...

    The Conversion Corral

    Decided I needed a new panama hat for summer, so I set about building one using a Stetson center dent I picked up that looked like it would be straight enough and have enough brim to re-work. First I stripped it of its ribbon and cloth sweatband, before soaking it through and through and...

    A.C. Gilbert M1384 KOLDAIR Oscillating Fan

    Actually had some free time to assemble some photos yesterday evening, and thought I’d finally get around to posting some after-restoration shots since it seems I had forgotten to. I’ve been working on assembling and reassembling this one for some time, as the motor seems to bind up now, but at...

    Fedoras afield

    Out exploring St. Paul’s old brickyards in my brown Tumwater yesterday. Thank goodness I didn’t have a backpack and walking stick or I never would have been able to go past the sign.

    The Conversion Corral

    Purchased a Sunbody hat (hg35f) for fun a few weeks back, and proceeded to re-block it on my Hatshaper. Ironed a new brim break in and straightened the sides before adding a wide sweatband and ribbon. At the end of the day I gained about an inch in height, but only lost 1/4” off the 3 1/2”...

    Not a great photo, but I’ve been wearing my light-colored Tumwater around the past few days.

    Wore one of my Tumwater’s while out and about yesterday and today. Perhaps my favorite hat.
