    Not a reply. A question: The dimensions of the typical Bogart fedora. Brim width, crown height, etc. Thanks!

    STERKOWSKI FEDORAS

    I see these fedoras made by a Polish company on Amazon for less than $100. The claim is: They are made of rabbit fur. Any Lounger know about these hats? Own one?

    Two inquiries re fedora brim widths: -What was the width of the fedoras Bogey wore? 2 1/2? or less? -Is the new version of the Stetson Whippet considered a hipster/stingy brim fedora because the brim width is 2 3/8"? Or. was 2 /38" perhaps the Bogart brim width? Thanks!

    Nathaniel Hat Makers

    I checked the David Morgan site from time to time. It appears that all of his felt hats are Akubra. I don't recall any styles from Nate. Could be wrong.

    stetson open road question

    The reason I asked in the first place is because I have to cowboy-worn Open Roads from New Mexico, each I would say from at least the 60's, and each has a 2.5" brim and a 5" open crown. Then I picked up a dead ringer for an Open Road recently up in Ventura for 60-bucks. It is in beautiful shape...

    stetson open road question

    Vintage Open Road What was the crown height and brim width of an Open Road back, say, in the fifties? Was it a 5" crown and 2 3/4" brim? Many thanks!

    I Rather Like How This Hat Looks. Where Might One Find a New Hat Like This?

    Try shuffling through Hats Plus stingy brim assortment. http://www.hats-plus.com/v-1-small-brim.aspx?categoryID=4#Filter=[pagenum=6*CategoryID=4*Sort=4*ava=0] You may not find an exact match. But there may be something close enough.

    Needing a first class baseball cap

    I just bought and received an Ideal Cap Co., solid color, blue, 1940's style. It is classic. Real wool, real leather sweat band, perfect fit. The crown is lower than current New Era hats, and I prefer that. Apparently, the dark blue I got was pretty much the cap worn by navy fliers in WWII.

    vintage caps

    Since I am originally from Philadelphia, I had to add the pretzel man and his cap. Even back in the sixties, pretzel vendors wore these caps we called Jeffs. They would wheel their carts up to the school yard fence, take orders and pass pretzels with mustard through the hurricane fence...
