It has been a few years since I have been here for the last time. Upon discovering that The Fedora Lounge is available on my cell phone, I'm giving it a new try.
Today's hat is a Stetson Whippet, probably from the mid fifties. It is a long oval, perfectly fitting my egg head.
VS The Inger
Thanks for all the kind comments about my Silver Mist VS!
You are right about the perfectness of Art's welted brim. From above, it looks like a true Cavanagh Edge. And it just 'functions' like one. This hat is my first one from Art with a welt, and I am really glad with it. It...
VS The Inger
Now that the crease is settling in, the time has come to present my newest VS hat:
Silver Mist felt, with a deep burgundy ribbon. The brim has an overwelt.
I've called this hat The Inger, because it came in on the day my niece with the same name has been born.
In my continuous efforts to thin the herd, I have put up some nice hats on auction on eBay.
If you have a 7 1/4 head, perhaps these might interest you.

There are three wonderful light weight Borsalino's, one in a deep green color. Also there are a Whippet-like Stetson, a Sheraton homburg with...
What a kind gesture!
Do know that the pleasure of knowing you is on my side.
And I wish you many years to come, to continue what you are doing in good health.
Now about ordering a VS during February..
I have been pondering an ArtLite Mojave hat for some time.
Would it be...
Thanks for the interest!
Inner length is about 19 1/2 centimeters, inner width about 16 1/2 centimeters. Circumference: 58 centimeters (a true size 7 1/4).
About the accuracy of the colours in the pictures: in reality the colour is a deeper green than most of the pictures show.
This is a great hat! Thick luscious velour felt, with a very soft feel. XX quality, which means that there is beaver content.
The colour is unique: dark green, with an azure shine.. (The second to last picture, with part of the brim in it, is most true to the actual colour of the hat.)...
Ode to a Black Hat
In recent years, I've refrained from wearing black hats.
This VS came into my life about a month ago.
I did buy it from fellow Lounger Donato.
And since... I've hardly been wearing any other hat.
This one fits on my head perfectly and I feel it fits the season.
Thanks all for the debate about the definitions of ´reeded´and ´unreeded´, after the presentation of my recently acquired Stetson Week-ender.
Because of this debate, I have inspected the hat another time.
