What ever you end up doing....I am sure when it comes on the market again...people will argue whether the pencil curl and binding are original to the hat....so be sure to keep the work receipt with it!;)


I’ll take 1970s hats and put 1930s newspaper clipping behind the sweatbands. I’ll also occasionally drop in an old train ticket and sign the reverse side of the sweatband with the name of a famous person who died in the mid 1940s or earlier. I’m doing my part to keep hat collections exciting and full of contradictions. :cool:

The binding is already there and original to the hat, so far as I know. I mainly sent it for a new sweatband and to be downsized a bit. While at it, figured I'd have the crown creased and add the pencil curl, if it made sense. To go from what's in pic 1 and 2 to how pic 3 is.
Both hats have the same Block Number. I had the pencil curl put on that light colored hat when I put it in the shop earlier this year for work.

What is the hat in the 3rd picture? Very nice. Looks exactly like my Gannon modified Big Four.

Where did Filson offshore their Mackinaw wool production to? I noticed it isn't Pendelton anymore. And their made in USA products say Made in USA with imported materials.

I would be shocked if anyone here kept up on modern wool production hats.

If I had to guess, I'd guess Dorfman Pacific. But you're asking a vintage hat focused audience about hats that are decidedly not in our collective wheelhouse.

Woops. I meant to ask in outerwear.

In a new hat I bind the brim first then do the curl. With the curling shackles there is a bit of friction on the felt and some shredding of the felt. I would imagine it would be the same on the ribbon so if the ribbon is at all fragile/sun damaged the curling might negatively affect the ribbon.
Makes sense.
Wonder how they do homburgs??

Good morning. The last few days I have been having slow response with The Fedora Lounge website. Are you folks having slow response?

Dang for a while the website was Humming right along.

(I have reset browser, cleared caches, changed to a variety of browsers, reviewed my Adgard / CleanMyMac settings and confirmed my various internet connection speeds. All within "normal" bounds.)

Cheers, Eric. -

YES......the site has been very difficult to use anymore.....it has even taken upwards of 10 to 15 seconds (or more just to "like" something.:(

I had that the last couple of months, Eric. Very frustrating. Since the end of November and here in December it's been more or less back to normal.

I don't think it's anything we members can fix our end of things.
