Well, here are a few shots from right before lunch. Didn't get to take pics by the lake like I wanted, wife intercepted my lunch plans with grocery shopping.

Received two compliments on the hat, and a TON of looks. it's definitely a keeper.
I'll have to modify the leather sweatband though, part of it where the weather seal makes it bunch up digs into my head when I take off the hat. Not sure if I'm gonna cut out the offensive part or put some medical cloth tape over it...

Just to let you know. Medical cloth tape gets gooey after a while on a sweatband. So does the Medical paper tape.
YMMV

Oh yeah, I remember all too well. Former military O.R. supply logistician.
I'll probably just trim it with some scissors...

You did a great job, my friend! Looking very good!!
So, I myself are just like you coloured (brown skinned). What colour hats suits you, besides this black one? I am 1 meter and 78 centimeters tall ( I do not know how much inch that is!) and I have grey hair and also a grey facial hair trimmed to just 3 millimeters.

Hmmm, with features like yours...I would go for a gray hat or a black hat. Gray for when you want to blend in your gray hair, black hat for when you want your wizened beard to shine!

One thing I take pride in is my beard and the gray hairs in it. I knew many from back home that died long before they had a chance to have gray hairs.

Good luck!
