    I’ve been on grandpa duty since Saturday, Max, just getting back to the Lounge this morning. Good thing others answered because I would have needed to call a friend, though. Having not been part of that cult, I can never remember the acronym it seems. I will now!

  5. Yep. You could almost smell the crazy coming off the computer screen.

    If you want an ultra mega zenith pinnacle custom fedora I know where you can get one for a reasonable $50,000.

  6. This was a defeat. While I was confirming that the hat truly was a 7 3/4 (the photos of the size tags were sent to me in a PM) someone else bought it from under me. I hope it’s someone here and I can at least see it from time to time. :)

    Fortune favors the bold, and I was not bold in believing this was a 7 3/4 when the listing didn’t include and indication, or photos, of how the size was determined. I’m right 99 times in a hundred and this was the 100.

    Sorry you missed it. That is a sweet boater.

  8. Dang ... that hurts Brent. I guess we are both a bit gun shy about a stated hat size being a length measurement instead.

  9. Thanks, Randy. They don’t often come along in those larger sizes, but then I have 3-4 boaters and rarely wear them. They’re hats I like the idea of more than the reality of…if that makes any sense.

    Sure. I'm not really into boaters but the one you posted could change my mind.

  11. Yep. My standard message is: “I didn’t see a size tag in your photos. Can you please tell me how you determined the size.”
    There wasn’t anything in the proportions that made me think 7 3/4 either. :(

    Win some lose some.

    Man. I’d be crowin’ like a rooster if I had this widely bound beaut.

    Sorry ya missed the...boat, as well, Brent.
    We can’t win em all, I know, but it makes it worse when knowing you were only a few minutes away from a great victory.
