    Thanks, everyone, for your responses. The style of my one VS, a Milan straw, was taken from an old hat I saw on Etsy, but it looked so old that I didn't worry about it. I was just concerned in this case about asking Art to do something that might not be 100% kosher or that could get him in trouble. The source of my lust, by the way, is a little number in whiskey with a three-inch brim. And I think I've got it bad.

    Just got my kit from Art. Looking at the felt samples I'm curious about coyote. Just wondering if someone could post a photo of a hat made with this felt.
    Thanks,
    Brad

    Brad,

    I'm not familiar with it. It's not in the samples I got from Art almost two years ago and doesn't show on his website. I also don't think anyone has posted photos of it. It must be new. A photo would help.

    Don't know how to post it in the site's new format, but my high-crown 30s center dent Artlite (posted in this thread a few weeks ago) is in coyote.

    Simon--I went back and looked at it. Looks like a great color.

    It really is. Art described it as having reddish tones, as opposed to pecan's greenish tint and whiskey's golden, and it's a shade lighter than chocolate.

    Wow. I've been out of the country for a month and the whole site's changed. Art: Hope all's well. I wore the midnight blue version of the Stendahl (the hat in my avatar) and received many nice compliments. Even in Milan!

    Photo 027.jpg Photo 028.jpg Photo 029.jpg Photo 031.jpg Photo 032.jpg Hi everyone! I just recently got this beautiful hat; it's Art's Confederate gray, has a 2 3/8" brim and a nice full crown. It's in dress weight felt and it's open-crown, so I play around with it before I decide on a definitive crease. The feather is my own addition!
    Thanks Art!

    The hat looks very nice, you wear it well. I just ordered my first VS hat from Art yesterday in the Confederate gray, open crown. I'm not sure about the ribbon color yet and Art is going to send me some pics of different ribbon colors on the felt next week. I was absolutely sure of what I wanted to have made until I received the email saying my spot in the queue was coming up and then my thought process kinda went out the door. However, I knew immediately upon speaking with Art for the first time I was in good hands.
