You're correct, because the last time I was here was 2 computer crashes ago and I can't even recall the nick and login I used at time, I posted so seldomly.

Got the Laurel and Roxbury from DelMonico.

Might try getting one made by Optimo. They've got something called the McQueen; think a Panama could be done that way?

GamaH I pulled your hats from the store room today to send them on there way to your house. I hope you enjoy them. Here is a pick of a straw that I had in the 80's it took awhile to get that way.

Hat Shaping Question

Panama Hat
I just received a beautiful Panama Hat from Robert over at www.panamas.biz Does anyone know if a panama hat can be shaped and stiffened in the style of a Fedora? If so where should/can I purchase one? Where can i buy a fedora for the winter? Or are panamas made to stay natural without doing anything to them?

Happy Trails,
Jerry

Hello Hiram. Did you buy a block hat or just a body form Bob? If you just bought an unblocked body you need to get it blocked, and Bob can guide you to a person to do that for you. Most hat shops sell preblocked Panama Hat's. You can check out the web page of the shop I work at http://www.delmonicohatter.com/ we also carry fur and wool felt Fedoras.

Catch you on the Level

1. Where can I get my panama hat stiffened and shaped to look like a fedora?
2. Where can I purchase a felt fedora for the upcoming winter?
3. Are panama hats made to be worn naturally with shaping them?

Txmason, most panamas and felt hats have the same basic shape.

There is a hat store list on the lounge to help us out.

Felt hats and straw hats need tweaking sometimes. I have used felt stiffener on straw hats to make them hold their shape better with no adverse effects.

Now that is pretty cool. I was rather surprised to receive the shipping notification only a day after I placed the order. Probably one of the fastest shipping of an order I ever placed; great service. Here's hoping USPS (or the local post) doesn't screw up somewhere along the way. :p

Just a question real quick though, I decided I don't need anymore hat boxes, so I didn't select the option for a hatbox. How were the hats packaged for shipping?

GamaH we packed you hats in a well padded shipping box. Here is to hoping no Elephants sit on it in transit. Let me know how you like the hats when they arrive.

Hello Jeff after posting that I was looking for a hatter in southeastern new england ,I saw your post ,
Do you guys clean and block hats ?

I can't find a one in Prov.

I have 7 or 8 fedoras to go with all my suits but some of then need a good cleaning and perhaps blocking on a few.

I bought most of them on line at ebay for example ,I just bought a 5 x beaver stetson fedora and it really needs a cleaning and I also need a good hat brush.

The drive down to you guys in no problem ,just wondering if you do this sort of thing.

All the Best , Frank
