    my wife said "thanks guys on the compliments". She loves her hat, i had Bob put daisy's on the side, thats her favorite flower. Bob did amazing, OH and just an idea, might help the ease of us all buying hats all the time. Buy your wife a custom hat, it does help when you decide to get another one.

    I don't know the open crown height because I had Bob crease it for me (I usually prefer to crease my own, but he does such a fantastic job shaping his hats), so the front comes to just about 4" at the center, and the brim width is 2 1/4"

    Thats exactly what I did. It certainly eases the unvailing of a new hat

    since he has to dye the felt and possibly the ribbon we don't have a firm date but I got the email that it was going for it's dye bath so it shouldn't be too much longer.....

    Now that is a hat! :eusa_clap

    Dark Moss is one of my favorite felt colors (alongside Pecan and Steel/Charcoal Grey). Is the ribbon same color or a subtle contrasting color?

    Hey Neo, GF is not new, I had it since April, but now that it's cold I have been wearing it quite a bit. A very comfortable lid.
    Ribbon is a custom lighter green that Bob did for me.

    That's neat. New or not, that is a great looking hat :). The flange and pinch give it a sharp profile.

    Great looking Hat, EggHead. The color has a warm undertone.

    Thanks guys for all the nice comments.
    yes, dark moss felt in raw is not that impressive, but when Bob was done with it, I could not believe my eyes (and fingers).
    It's a very pleasant to look at green and feels "mossy", like good velvet. :)
