    Beater Brotherhood

    WOW I like that hat! Casual with a hint of American West. Nicely done, good Sir!

    “WTF’ Hats,” that are hard to believe...

    I hear they have medication for that now. ;)

    “WTF’ Hats,” that are hard to believe...

    Ah, of course, Borsalino. Maker of fine hats for souvenir shops and truck stops all over the world. :rolleyes:

    “WTF’ Hats,” that are hard to believe...

    At the very least it seems a waste of good wool/fur felt.

    “WTF’ Hats,” that are hard to believe...

    Plant, no. Leaf, yes. Smoke 'em if ya' got 'em!

    Stetson Pinnacle 7 1/2

    Probably, but we may never know because the seller hasn't been back here in the last four years.

    The Talisman Hat

    Probably by a Nick Fouquet admirer. :rolleyes:

    Vintage Photos of Kids in Hats

    Considering the bow is on the wrong side of the crown of that hat, and the coat buttons are on the wrong side as well, I'd guess the photographer accidentally or intentionally "flopped' the negative before he made that print. That, or it's actually a little girl. Still a great photo!

    The Bowler or Derby Hat

    I've most often seen that style referred to as a "Coachman" hat, because the coach drivers in Europe wore them.

    HAT ADORNMENTS: ribbons, bows, pins, pugs, leather, etc.

    It was indeed The Stooges. They used the gag in one short with Curly, and again with Shemp after Curly had to retire.

    HAT ADORNMENTS: ribbons, bows, pins, pugs, leather, etc.

    Playing card, no. But, just for laughs, every once in a while I've stuck one of those phony baloney "PRESS" cards on one of my hats: Co-workers and friends who appreciate old movies got the gag immediately, others looked puzzled for a while until they worked up the nerve to ask me about it. ;)

    An Akubra update

    So, probably wool rather than rabbit fur or hare, which might keep the price down a bit...or not... Not that I need one, but it could come in handy now that we're getting rain again in California. ;)

    What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    When you get to the part of the credits that says "The End", you can stop. Dial of Density is not worth the time spent trying to figure it out and, with all of the injuries he's sustained over the years, Mr. Ford is just too old to continue playing Indy.

    M.C. Gannon Hat Company

    With all due respect, I disagree. Hats, eyeglasses, any other item of clothing, car, motorcycle, the "right" girl or guy, food, art, etc., it doesn't really matter. If YOU like something, to hell with what everyone else thinks--wear it, eat it, hang it on a wall in your home, drive it, ride...

    Reining Hats and Dogs

    These days the driver/owner would likely be charged with animal cruelty.

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    Maybe, but it makes sense to me. Healthy, proper circulation that provides nutrients to all parts of the body can only maintain or increase the health of cells and tissues, and that's essentially how medications like Viagra work--by opening capillaries, veins, arteries, and so on; improved...

    The Non Shorpy Web All Stars.

    Wow, that Gent is like a walking, talking, breathing caricature of a man living in Oklahoma in the 1930s.

    Bad CGI Masters of the Air?

    Having now seen all nine episodes, yes, I did think there was some occasionally not-so-good CGI. That said, in my younger days when CGI was still being developed and refined it would bother me sometimes if the effects in whatever I was watching weren't "up to snuff". Now I've reached the age...

    The Dobbs Diner...

    No attack intended, just a bit of hopefully harmless fun.
