    Derby Deconstruction

    Thank you! I have a couple that the felts are amazing but just the sweats need some repairing or replacing. If it was a regular fedora I would do it myself but these are derbies/bowlers so I will leave it to the professionals. Are you referring to Mike the Hatter from Ohio? That is who I found...

    The Bowler or Derby Hat

    Can anyone tell me a bit more about this one? Got this one yesterday, the brim is straighter and a bit taller than the ones I have. Its very very stiff brim and crown. Only problem is the sweatband that is barely hanging on. Thanks!!!

    How hard is it for a hatter to sew in a new sweatband on a vintage? I have a few that could use it. Seems it would be tough due to the stiffness.

    The Bowler or Derby Hat

    Just picked up these two.. Stetson and Knapp-Felt. Could anyone try and dates these please? The Stetson seems to be almost like new, the felt and everything except the band, leads me to believe it is a lot newer. Hard to pull back the sweats as they are already cracking. If you need more pics...

    The Bowler or Derby Hat

    I have a confession myself, I always use Art's dress weight in the rain with no umbrella. The weight of this dress weight holds its shape very well after a good soaking. I will try to keep the vintage ones out of the rain as you say Redfokker, it's not worth damaging them. They are only so many...

    The Bowler or Derby Hat

    How well do bowlers/derbies do in the rain? will they crack after too many times being soaked? wet, dry, wet, dry.. crack. of course I wouldn't put one next to heater to dry, but normal drying? Will mine get soft and floppy after? I always see em in the movies being rained on.. just wondering.

    First hats, I think I may have bought too many

    You can never have too many :D Gotta have a variety for summer and fall, then you gotta have different ones to match wardrobe. Just buy more hat racks is what i do. Yes, when you find em in your size, get em.

    Reducing hat size

    Definitely placing inside of sweatband, nothing with adhesives. Felt strips work great as it molds in a way. I'll try out the newspaper method when i get my other hat. What about replacing with a thicker sweatband? Do they make those? Probably not right.

    Reducing hat size

    Thank you sir for your advice! I guess 1cm is not too uncommon to gain with some padding.
