    The Strange Case of Melvin "Ted" Carr, Unresolved Mysteries

    Everyone loves a good mystery, especially when that mystery is an actual event. I often thought about this guy over the years and always wondered if he could possibly have been a serial killer who traveled many States and how many people he could have murdered along the way whose bodies have...

    Trying To Figure This One Out

    About 3-4 years ago I bought a late '40s Stetson Imperial in Suede Finish. It has a whipped stitched felted hat band with a raw edge brim. I never saw another one like it before. At first I suspected that the hat may have been a Stetson Tijuana with the brim cut down because the original owner...

    Stetson Going Hipster?

    Seems like Stetson is going to try and attract the young "Hipster" crowd. Wonder what this means for those of us who like the traditional fedora and Western headwear? http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/stetson-looks-to-hipsters-to-move-beyond-the-cowboy-hat/ar-AAe6yZp?ocid=spartandhp

    Windows 10

    Anyone go for the free upgrade from Windows 7 / 8 to 10 yet? I did mine yesterday and the download went off without a hitch. I went from using Linux to Windows 8 when I bought my new computer. I hated Windows 8 at first, but after using it a little while it wasn't really that bad. Windows 10...

    What's Bogey Wearing?

    I've been a long time fan of the "Dead End Kids" movies, even before they later became the "Bowery Boys". In their first movie appearance, "Dead End", Humphrey Bogart meets up with the boys as gangster, "Baby Face Martin". He wore a neat fedora in the movie and I was wondering if anyone had any...

    To Ribbon, Or Not To Ribbon

    I can use some help here with a decision. I have this Knox 15 Westlite, (given to me by John Galt), which currently doesn't have a ribbon on it. Thanks to another generous lounger I have a few ribbons choices I can put on it. But the more I look at this hat, the more I like the no ribbon look...

    USPS Sucks

    Buyer / Seller beware! Seems I'm not the only person who's having delivery issues with USPS. I was expecting to receive a package a couple days ago, via USPS, which failed to arrive on the expected delivery date.

    Making a tight hat fit. The easy way!

    My Bradford from a couple months ago... I know we discussed this in an earlier thread. I have a rare Bradford OR clone that I really love. I feared that I may had to have sold it or traded it off because it fit too tight. The tag was marked 7 1/8 but it fit like a size 7. I remember we...

    A Nightmare On Elm St., Freddy's Fedora

    I always wondered what fedora Freddy Kruger wore. In the first and original of the Nightmare On Elm St. movies Freddy wore a "Designer Collection" Whippet clone. The first of the series was also the only movie where Freddy's hat had a ribbon...also notice the brim ribbon in some of the pictures...

    FOR TRADE: Akubra Squatter

    I have an Akubra Squatter in very good condition. It's had very little wear time. I love the Squatter but my only issue with the one I have is the black color. I don't care much for Black hats. I'm wanting to trade it off to someone who does like Black hats. My Squatter is a size 58. It has a 3...

    The end of the Akubra Squatter?

    I've been looking around to buy another Squatter in a different color other than the black one I have, (I don't really care much for black hats...but I do love the Squatter). I really like the Squatter's tall crown and three inch wide brim. I was looking at the Bushman but I don't care much for...

    Question About Re-Blocking A Hat

    I have a Resistol 4X Beaver that has been converted from a Western style Cowboy hat to a Fedora. But my problem with the hat is that there's a noticeable taper to the crown and it's also a little too big for me. I would like to have this hat sized down to a 7 1/8 LO and have it re-blocked to get...
