    Smelly hat: How to get an odor out of a hat?

    Hello fellow loungers, fire has recently claimed part of our home, including some of my most prized hats. That being said, for those that did survive, how do I deal with the smoke damage? I remember a mention on a thread a while back about the use of naphtha for cleaning. Any info for cleaning...

    Source of James Spader's hats {The Blacklist}

    I will check it out first chance I get, but having watched and enjoy Blacklist myself, I can say that most of his hats are in the 2ish" brim wise. I would search for 50's-60's stingy brimmed hats.

    Need either a photo or the season and episode No. to get a reference for the hats dimensions. Hats come in a huge combination of brim/crown/ribbon sizes. good luck with your search and welcome to the group!

    Lucky Strikes

    Ah Luckys! I was given a case of old C-rations by an old vet from the Korean war. Being young and way dumb at the time opened them and yes smoked them! Stale as hell, but still tasty. and as the topper chewed the almost 40 year old chicklets. My misspent youth.....

    NEW STETSON 2015 Dress catalog

    I have had My Stetson Racine for about a month and would agree that QC is lacking. However the felt is nearly as nice as some of my vintage lids, soft, color is even, and the finish is velvety. Makes me wonder if any of these posts get back to Matt, perhaps he can crack that whip so to speak. I...

    Open Crown Stetsons: A Call (Plea) to Retailers!!

    I suppose the real reason I went with this model was the bronze crown ribbon. you rarely see a contrasting ribbon theses days, I did a ton of shopping and this was the only one to fit the bill. I am proud to help support Stetson in it's effort to reenergize the hat industry.

    Open Crown Stetsons: A Call (Plea) to Retailers!!

    Adding my new Stetson to the fray. Pleased to wear such a fine hat. only a few minor irksome details, but overall a great looking hat and the feel of the fur is soft and very pliable.

    Having recently lost both my parents to cancer, I feel for Steve and his family. Sad, sad situation. I pray he gets better and can find that spark of life once more. Peace to Steve....

    Brim edging question.

    I completely agree! I have many bound edge hats, and they have a more dressed up look. nearly all my raw edge hats are daily knockabout hats. Nothing states as much class as a bound edge with a proper suit! Cheers all and have a wonderful Christmas!

    Open Crown Stetsons: A Call (Plea) to Retailers!!

    Well stated Rick! Most of my motivation is geared towards bolstering new hat sales. they don't make "vintage" any more, and as such, in finite supply. buying new keeps quality hats in the supply line and someday our new hats will be considered vintage! who knows someday vintage prices may...
