    Looks good, Panos.

    Winchester felt isn’t consistent as some felts are reasonably soft and not overly firm and some are quite stiff. The good news is that the stiff dress weight felt tends to soften with use.

    The search for better hat bodies is what makes FEPSA beaver felt so appealing to those who have tried Winchester’s offerings.

    Thanks Brent !

    I am just getting to know Winchester felts. Unlike my Fepsa ones I intend to expose this one in the harsh Norwegian elements this winter, that should do ;)

    My Glacier was a bit stiffer than previous hats from Art and other local-to-me hatters (NW Hats, Penman, Gannon). I just assumed it came from Winchester that way. Even so, it took a dry crease (without steam) very well and I see no need to add steam to set the crease as with previously purchased hats made from Winchester felt.

    I only have one Northwest 100% beaver and it was/is the stiffest dress hat I have. There isn’t much in the way of consistency with Winchester.
