What grit paper would you suggest?
This hat has potential. It’s going to look great. Neat ribbon, yes.
This would be under the category "items of interest". Stumbled upon this on today. Not mine, but a tidbit of new information to me.
Royal Stetson made under license in Norway! I know about the German and English licenses, but a Norwegian one is news to me.
Today was just one of those days.
Yesterday I unpacked that Knox Foxhound fedora and instantly thought, "Gah! What an ugly little fuzzy hat! If I had seen it in person I never would have bought it..." and then I spent all day today wearing it.
I think this might become one of my favorite hats as it fits well, it's very comfortable and it has that what the hell is that thing? look to it.
I reshaped the top a bit (not pictured) and it's almost kind of stylish.
That got me to thinking that I need more hats.
So, to keep my life from becoming a living hell, I bought an old Knox or two and a bizarre Stetson which probably needs a flea collar.
I love when that happens!
That is cool. I have seen Britain, Australia, Germany (as well as one marked West Germany), and Japan, but Norway is a new one to me! Very cool find.
A gray Stetson Springaire yesterday.
An excellent bit of history, Stefan.
I’d say this hat deserves to be here as an eBay victory, even though this one cost more than any hat I’ve purchased for myself.
$150 is still a bargain for this particular Stetson.
50s 3X BQ Fifteen.
I’ve had many OR styled hats, but this one is the only one that has absolutely no issues. Love it.
A truly wonderful hat Randall
Very nice! Sometimes you have to step up to get the real gems, and this is certainly one of them.
Thanks, McGee, Joe and Brent.
I’m proud to have ‘er. This 3x felt is superior to any Stetson thin ribbons I’ve owned. Never held a 7x and Wonder how much finer a felt could get?
A fine grit. You want to finesse the felt, not grind it up.
So...I wasted money on this rasp?
60s Playboy in great condition.
Yes, I’ll take one!
$125 BIN will do it for me. I especially liked the liner and felt colors and overall condition.
The felt is soft and pliable, but one can definitely see the decline in Stetson quality with this year model.
My grandpa liked mid ribbons only and would have liked to see me wearing this one. I remember him having a tan 60s Playboy that he mostly wore to church. He had a more worn in Sears fedora that he wore while making moonshine. I have it hanging on my wall with many of others. I’m glad this eBay purchase came along. I’ll be wearing it to church this coming Sunday in his honor. Don’t ‘Shine anymore, or I’d turn up a Mason jar in his honor, as well.
