    The Hatco Outlet Store in Garland, TX

    It's not a big shop. After an hour you'll have seen everything twice. I swing by there every 6 weeks or so to see if there's anything new. Their inventory has been down due to the Covid slow down. Have a good trip.

    I can't wait to see it. I knew that the British soldiers would dye the white helmets in coffee and dirt so they wouldn't stand out as much. I'm not ready to do that to mine though.

    I love the baby Yoda Hawaiian shirt, Johnny. That's fantastic. Here is a pic of my wife's pith. It's a bit more feminine.

    It's a pressed fiber sun helmet that I picked up about 10 years ago from Goodwill. I think it has a USN (navy) stamp in it somewhere. I bought two for about $10 ea. I gave one to my wife for our annual hat party. I'll look for a pic of hers. Yes, I folded the pug to give it some flair. I'm...

    Lookin' good Johnny. Come down to Texas, we have several more months of hot weather. I remember sweating in my Halloween costume as a kid. I've been hunting for a Bombay Bowler. I did find this company over the weekend. It looks like they manufacture pith helmets (and terracotta pots...

    I'm a 7 3/4. My son bought my Foreign Service Helmet from Hatsandcaps.co.uk in the UK. It fit's me fine. I would recommend them for those of us with keg-heads. BTW, you can't fit all these good looks into a small head.

    A British Foreign Service helmet worn on American Independence Day, either hilariously ironic or a wildly inappropriate political statement. I'll let you decide. Either way, it looks good in a Hawaiian shirt.

    My head officially qualifies as a "keg-head." I normally wear a 7 3/4. This one was tagged as an XL. I still have a little room in it. My son got it from Village Hats in the UK, https://www.hatsandcaps.co.uk/pith-helmets-c_pith_helmets/ I have parking lot duty at church this Sunday. I'm...

    Tension will hold them in place. I have some cords on a few hats and I've never had them fall off.

    So, I got me this Fez see.....

    I asked for one for my birthday from my boys. He ended up buying a costume fez and yes it became a gag item. It currently sits on my hat stand at work with my US Army helmet, pith helmet and my daily hat.

    God Bless Texas So I went to the gun show last week with some friends. They were looking for a new home defense weapon. I ended up buying a new EDC (Springfield XDs 9 OSP, but that's another story.) It turns out that almost a third of the show was dedicated to militaria (military...

    Now Forming! the Campaign Hat Corps

    Here's my (version) M1904 Campaign Hat. I purchased this from the Hatco outlet store in Garland, it started life as a Stetson American Buffalo Collection cowboy hat. I had them cut the brim down 3" and I re-shaped the crown a little from the factory cattleman's crease. I think I paid about...
