    I received a new VS last night; it's a thin-ribbon in powder blue light-weight felt. The brim is 2 5/8" and it has a really neat gray sweatband. Thanks for the fantastic hat, Art!

    That's a fine looking hat Jauntyone! The powder blue is mind blowing, in some photos it looks really blue, and in others very grey.

    Lightweight for the Summer.....and beyond

    Finally had a chance to snap a few photo's of my (not so) new Artlite. It's a couple of months old now and I'm still excited every time I wear it.

    It's a Silvermist, which is a beautiful white/light grey/light blue - another of Arts beautiful colors. As far as the weight, I swear, if it was any lighter it would float away.

    [​IMG]
    The ribbon treatment is 1 3/4 inch (19 Ligne) light grey with blue/green tones; the brim is a 2 3/4 inch underwelt, the crown wears a teardrop bash.

    [​IMG]
    Shot shows the cute little "Tip Sticker", also shows some of the stich detail that normally is covered with a full lining.

    [​IMG]
    And, last but not least, a 'resting' shot leaning against one of Arts hat blocks (to which I've added legs)

    Hope you enjoy, I know I am. :D

    Beauty, Cliff. I have 3 Art Lites, and they are incredibly lightweight, but still hold their shape.

    Wow, Cliff - that is one of the nicest VS hats I've yet seen!

    Doesn't Art do a super job with his welted brims? I always know there are stitches there, but really hard to spot.

    Nice looking hat!

    I agree, that edge looks like...."perfection"!

    ...and the lighter colors are even more lightweight than the darker ones. I have a Blue Smoke & it is discernibly lighter than the Natural & Pecan ArtLites I have.
