    I have no doubt it could grow on me. I'm going to work on it tomorrow but I need to show it to a buddy first before I do anything.

    So before now I never knew what a fedora hat was. I am far from knowledgeable in vintage hats. The Dobbs Dayton fedora hat I found all the information about that one. My only question for the Dobbs hat is it resellable or collectible? I know it cost $150 new still had the tag with it
    So the second hat my most intriguing hat. I've done a lot of research on it I cannot find any that look exactly like it, there are a lot that resemble it. I do know it's fur felt, it's not wool. Josef Geiger according to Google is a famous actor/director. Below the name is an address. The only thing I don't know about is the BOHM crest? I think it's missing the feather. so if I hit the jackpot on the green hat just let me know now, and whatever helps me figure out if I'm a millionaire or just as broke as i started,either give you money or a thank you
    . Also I'd like to know how much that hat was new and what's it worth now if possible. I appreciate the information from whoever gives it to me and have a great day

    The Dobbs is a modern hat (not vintage) of intermediate quality compared to other contemporary hats. It’s not a hat that many here would get excited about, but if you like the look and fit what else matters?

    Your second hat is of a style that we regularly see, and most sell for modest prices. The size, condition, etc., all contribute to value. Maybe we can get Steve @mayserwegener to give us the benefit of his expert opinion.

    Is there somewhere in the Lounge where I can see the quality ranking of Lee hats? Is blue better than black, is gold better than the rest, etc?

    I was looking at the label this weekend and it's the Imperial grade felt. What does that tell me?

    I personally don't own an imperial grade, but based on everything I've heard, they're a bit easier to manage when it comes to creasing and shaping. I have one Akubra and it's of the heritage grade felt, and it tends to be a bit stubborn if I need to tweak it some. This topic has been discussed at greater length in the Akubra Overload thread.

    Any New Years Hat resolutions out there?

    I guess mine is to look for older hats and rare models.

    Hi fellows, it’s been a long time since I’ve been to FL (lots of, let’s say “life changes” but all for the better, now with a wonderful woman who does like my hats). Art retiring. New faces. Time marches on.

    Asking about “new” Strats. So Stetson stepped up and decided to meet public demand for the iconic hat? What are the new ones like? You grizzled vets like them? Hate them?

    The Premier hats are quite nice. The felt is a bit thinker than I’d like, but they are a definite step up. If you can find one of the short-lived Excellent quality hats I think you’ll be very happy, but they’re hens teeth.

    I woke up at 9:00AM this morning, it is now just noon AND I have broken my hat resolution by just now sending an email confirming a vintage Stetson purchase. Based on the new year so far, it is not looking too good on the prudence front in my household.

    Anyone here heard of the Resistol Bear Hug? It’s hard to tell, but the brim “binding” doesn’t look like any kind of ribbon.

  20. New one on me. The binding looks like leather.
