    sterkowski caps

    I see Brett Stiles, the man behind B!Ware, a few times a week as he’s an avid walker and his path goes by my office. He’s made me a few caps over the last several years. You might see if he could switch out the gold leather for a chain?

    M.C. Gannon Hat Company

    Thank you, Eric. I enjoyed reading Vic’s hat guide again. After shaping and a deep crease with a small center dome, I agree that it doesn’t look too tall at all. In fact, the more time I spend with it the more I like the hat. I wasn’t as excited upon receiving this Gannon as I wanted to be but...

    German & Austrian Hutmachers

    Looks like it was made in Germany under license from Stetson. I believe Mayser once held the license. Maybe @mayserwegener will shine some light on this: he is THE MAN when it comes to German hats. It might take him a few days to get back to you.

    I think I saw that hat recently for sale. It could be a hat made by a foreign company under license from Stetson. Are there any other markings on the sweatband? Can you provide clearer photos? It would also be helpful if you could fold the leather sweatband down and look for labels glued to...

    sterkowski caps

    The B!Ware hat company also offers a similar style. They are custom made but they are workman’s hats. http://mariposa.yosemite.net/bwear/form.htm

    Thanks, Joe. I’m trying the brim this way for now but I may snap it down in front.

    Steaming and brushing really helped the felt. Oddly, I no longer see the slight blotchiness that I thought was an issue with color saturation. The hand still isn’t as nice as my other nutria Gannons or any of his beaver felts, but it’s still completely acceptable. I’m including photos in...

    The Dobbs Diner...

    I think it was a symptom on it’s time. It was made with the hopes “someone” would buy it rather than to fill a need or to give the public what it was asking for.

    The Dobbs Diner...

    The crown is just too low for that. I tried creasing it with a shallow gutter crease and it just doesn’t look right at all. I’m out of my depth here,
