    What are you wearing today??

    You've come a long way, kid. I remember when you were gettin' some guff for doing the vintage thing. You're showin' 'em now just how cool a guy can be when he sticks to his guns and keeps refining his personal style!

    How Do You Wear Your Hat?

    I usually wear my fedoras with a little "Southside Slide"; tipped down a bit over the left eye since my right eyebrow tends to ride up and my head is shaped funny. I try to level out the westerns.

    Impure and low brow... (I keed, I keed).

    Whippet (yesterday). Got another in brown,... not to rub it in or anything. Ha!

    "I think that's the one he took the scissors to." --- Yeah. Back up a page and read the explanation I typed up already. Thx! G Liner shot by request. Another of those wonderfully embroidered jobs: And a 'post-op' pic (I had a steady hand that day) just to get Tom's gall again. Ha!

    Purchases without regrets?

    Well, now, that reminds me: In my early days of thrifting I once passed up an old Burberry trench (for $8, think it was!) because I hadn't yet learned enough to know what a score that would've been. Did end up getting a great '40s Aquascutum number though, later in the game.

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Well, you're certainly right about that. As agreeable as this hat is, it does seem to want that cattleman's crease most. I, however, was hung up on the teardrop. I think it was basically a high quality Open Road when I got it. Had the thin ribbon and edge binding on the brim. The brim, though...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Lookin' good gents,.. and lady! Michaelshane inspired/reminded me with his 7X the other day. Had to brush off my Stetson and take it for a spin. Here's a series of shots that highlight the style I wear but also show the amazing, nearly clay-like, ability of vintage 7X felt to take a dry...

    Purchases without regrets?

    I've only regretted the purchase of contemporary/modern items. A thing that was shaped like a blender but didn't have enough copper wound around the armature inside to whip its way out of a paper bag. Just one example, of many, from our manufacturing friends to the East. I call these items...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Hi, "e". It requires a certain pair of,... "panache", as I call 'em... to do the brims. But with a bit of self-deprecation. At least that's been my angle. It's cool that you're gettin' 'em thinking. Best, G

    You crusty ba***rd; don't threaten me with a good time. Might take you up on it! 7X (back when they meant it) is some pretty nice felt, no!? Nice lid, Michael. Keep 'em comin'. G

    Wore this one today. LOVE that time when they used to embroider the whole bit in the liner. Noggin' shot from a couple years ago:

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    THAT, right there, is "ROCKIN' A HAT"! Careful, lil' bro'. They weren't into warning labels much back in the day, as they say, but if they had been they'd cautioned you not to tread down the path I've wandered. It's great when the girls swoon. Not so much when you catch hell from the one at...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    If your hat maker of choice wants some specs from this one, lemme know and I'll send measurements. Although, note that I wear a 7 - so if you are a wildly different size, the proportions may need to differ. Best, G

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    OK, so I wore this one today. One of my top five. In the late '30s, Stetson was getting a little fed up with the popularity (and market share in the U.S.) of Borsalino, a wonderful hat maker but among the Axis powers. We hadn't gotten into the fray fully but a lot of writing was on the wall...
