    SCAM ALERT! Member “justing”

    I moderate two forums. Here is an inflexible rule I enforce on both: if someone joins and within hours responds to an " x wanted" thread with something like " contact Joe at (email) he has what you want" I ban them immediately. They are always scammers. I treat a new member who immediately...

    What's the worst coffee worldwide?

    At age 70, I've had lots of perk coffee. I like drip or Keurig better. Right now we have a Keurig and manually fill each grounds dose into reusable screen containers. The only drawback is fine grounds at the bottom.

    Pants you wear with your leather jackets

    Jeans or khakis, any color. My clothes, my choice. Almost anything looks good if you're comfortable in it.

    What's the worst coffee worldwide?

    IMO - the worst coffee is weak coffee. If you're going to drink it, make it real. In his classic Glory Road, a character written by the estimable R.A. Heinlein said words to this effect: "Coffee comes in five descending stages: Coffee, Java, Jamoke, Joe, and Carbon Remover." When I...

    The Stratoliner Association {Premiere}

    I just ordered a new Stratoliner True Blue from one of the classic hat shops, Paris Hatters in San Antonio. It will be a birthday present from my wife. Couldn't resist this one, as it has the classic look/feel.

    Montechristi Panamas: are these types of holes normal?

    In anything hand-woven, minor irregularities are part of the appeal. It's not a big, it's a feature.

    What were they thinking?

    I like it aside from the hood, which looks garish and out of place to me.

    What an interesting brim shape

    Evidence that what really matters is the confidence and comfort of the wearer! If you really are comfortable in it, the result looks good.

    Action on the Hatless Fad!

    I was encouraged to walk through a Dillard's this Christmas season and see two racks of hats. They were all stingy brims, but I'm pleased to see more young people wearing hats.

    Post New Hats Here!

    JUST won a hat I've been looking for...a Statson Zephyr weight in loden green. 2 1/4" brim (which is about the minimum I will buy) and 5" crown. I'll have the crown set in a pinch-front, and that will bring it down an inch or so. This is the photo from the auction, so it's nothing special...

    Another reason to wear natural fibers - formaldehyde!

    I regard that as of interest mostly to those who are sensitive to formaldehyde. As the author notes, it's present in stuff throughout the house, and laundering reduces the issue even in no-wrinkle shirts. I'm among those who like a starched cotton shirt, but the no-wrinkle blends have a place...

    My Mallory is very much like a Stratoliner - smaller brim than the Whippet-copies. A very nice hat!

    My favorite trick for snugging a slightly oversize hat

    I was in a hobby shop one day and noticed that they had strips of foam roadbed material for model trains. The foam is about 2" wide by 12" long and splits in the middle...so a half-width is the perfect size to fit behind a sweatband. Here's a shot of a half-strip of the material. Note that...

    NYT Article on Bing Crosby, Baseball; Hat Images Included

    Don't forget that Bing was also an endorser of the Stetson Whippet. Even if he was a regular with other brands, it's likely there were a number of Stetsons in his closet.

    Octoberfest/Oktoberfest in the US

    My town, Fort Collins Colorado, is commonly referred to as "the Napa Valley of beer". We have multiple microbrewers here which include New Belgium (Fat Tire), O'Dell's, Fort Collins Brewing and many other smaller operations. Oktoberfest is big here, and in Denver. As a fan of good beers, I...
