This seems to work on other sites, so I figure that it deserves a shot here.

If you've got a quick hat question and don't see a thread for it, just post it here. Whether the question is about cleaning, anatomy of a hat, brands, etc., this is the place.

Here's one to break the ice.

What is the largest user of felt today? How much is production/consumption up or down since the 1950`s?

(assuming the "e" is a typo and the question isn't something esoteric)

Most new threads are started by new members asking questions that have already been answered many, many times. Other times, someone might just remember that there is an existing thread on a topic, but can't seem to find the thread. Rather than starting a new thread asking "where's that thread I need", they can ask here.

This is the help desk. We're here to serve you. :D


********It should be noted that this is intended to be general help thread - it's not just me responding to questions. Anyone can ask, and anyone can answer.********

Wool or fur? If fur, what type (or all types)? Production and consumption are different. Do you want one, the other, or both?

All types of fur. Nothing too specific needed, just wondering how production has changed, given it was once such a large industry.

From the thread, I see that the hat is leather. Generally, almost every hat on this site is fur felt, with a few wool felt hats here and there. That makes it a bit tougher.

What do you mean by restore - clean and block (give it shape)?

that hat is very stiff, it is leather as you said but feels like one of those costume cardboard hats, and needs cleaned.

Hat color

Hi – I have a black suit with a classic cut that I intend to have to a 30s gathering, I also have a brown hat (Indiana Jones style) Swedish maker, that is very 30s too. My question is if there are any rules regarding hat colour and suit colour, or if it is mixable after wearers taste?

Dear Mr. Leftwell,

This thread has come along in the nick of time. My wife and I are having a bit of a tiff, and I'm wondering whether you might be able to help us sort things out. She is hosting a tea for the Women's Auxiliary tomorrow, and believes that the cucumber sandwiches should be round. I, on the other hand, believe that they should be square. Obviously, in either case, we both believe that the crusts should be removed. In any event, round or square? Can you please help us sort this out?

Yours faithfully,
James the Lid

Dear Mr. Lid,

In the spirit of compromise and goodwill, why not provide separate trays. One can display round and the other square sandwiches. Just make sure that the square ones are cut on the diagonal for dainty munching.
