    Thanks Zohar!

    For some reason my Sony Image Station has been down for 24 hours...hummmm...are they wanting a subscription?

    Thanks again for posting them for me.

    I love this hat. The workmanship is flawless, the liner supurb, with a paper liner between the felt and the silk. Leather sweat is top notch.

    Just the right amount of stiffner, and the brim is perfectly sized for me.

    I had to trade a very nice vintage hat block towards this purchase (funny, Art loves my toys)..but I realize that my curling Iron or the hat block serve no purpose collecting dust. Anything I can give Art to further his talent and dreams is my goal.

    NO YOU CAN'T have my CONFORMATURE!

    Very nice. I like that crown shape/dent. What's it called? Is there some reference I can look at when you guys talk about crown styles?

    Thanks,

    Teardrop.

    Hat looks good.

    You need a liner logo.

    Green hats are far and few between.

    Actually Matt, it's a "C" crown and you are right, green hats are fewer than any other color.

    Art, how do I tell a "C" crown from a teardrop (and any other crown shape)?

    I think C crown is the same as Teardrop. Am I right? I don't really know my self. LOL

    I have been wearing hats for 7 years and I'm still learning things!

    Regards.

    Nope Root, the "C" has distinct points right behind the side pinch where the teardrop does not. The teardrop uses a nice smooth transition and is generally a newer style ( compared to the '40s)
    It's also called the Borsalino block

    Hummmmm....

    I thought the "C" crown related to how many "C" notes I had to peel out of my wallet..

    And the "Teardrop" was when I looked at the credit card bill after buying ANOTHER hat!:)

    Swell! Those help out.

    Did the "Bogart Block" inherit its name in the 40's or was it called something else back then?

    Take care,

    Root.

    I'm not sure Rob, I just use the name because more people recognize it as that.
