    If a chicken and half laid an egg and a half every hour and a half. How long would it take a monkey to eat all the seeds out of a pickle?

    Yes, and if you would, please....I'm just dying to know...which way should the toilet paper go? So that it unrolls from the top...or from the bottom?

    But seriously, now...when did Stetson stop using wide (2") sweatbands and begin using narrow (1.5") sweatbands?

    Trick question. Monkeys hate pickles.

    top in the northern hemisphere, bottom in the southern

    The sweat question is an interesting one. From what I've seen, 2" was never a standard sweat width for Stetson, but was found only on some of the higher-end hats. Thoughts?

    Who put the Benzedrine in Mrs. Murphy's Ovaltine?

    If you can't answer that one:
    Is it normal for a panama brim to flap like crazy in the wind?

    We can answer all questions, though correct answers are rare.

    It's normal for panamas to flop in the wind. Be sure that it's the panama, and not your head that's doing the flopping. If the latter, consult your health professional, as help desk is not authorized to dispense medical advice. :D

    As to Mrs. Murphy, someone should arrest whomever spiked her drink and caused her addiction.

    A brown hat and blue suit are great together.

    A guide from 1931 - posted in the Suits forum as a sticky - prefers tan, but brown should do nicely.
    Incidentally, if you'd like to go for a bit more panache, why not try this look from 1929?

    On brims:

    I have stretched a hat slightly and one side of the brim has developed a small wavy spot. Can that be ironed out with steam and a smooth object?

    If this is a panama, consult HPG, whose tutorial on reshaping a panama brim helped me to finally like mine. In fact, it seems to me that the same method should work both fine and dandy on felt.

    You're on notice. :p
    The only thing I care to own from that place are my RW Williams boots, which I love - oh, and Nicole Kidman, if my wife gives it the OK. :D

    Jonathan Richard Caps?

    Can anyone give me the scoop on JR caps of Donegal? I just scored one at auction that was listed as being vintage but doesn't look it. It does appear to be of good quality, though.

    I'll give you a chance

    I have had a long standing arguement with myself on whether or not manufacturers of hats perferated sweat bands at the factory or was this a store offered service only? I have my opinion lets read yours.
