    Another George Eakle Stetson. It came up on eBay and I made a rather low offer..and offer accepted! Woohoo!

  2. Ah ha! So it was you. I told him where to find the label and he found it, said it was a 7 3/8. I made an offer...and was scooped by you apparently. :)
    I just wanted to handle a non-stiff hat Standard...probably best that I didn’t get it.

    I should've known a thread for Geo.I. Eakle existed. Found this rare gem and had the means to procure from a fellow hatter. Silverbelly felt. Paper thin sweat. This piece simply oozes class to me.

    Let's start open.

    Intricate ribbon and brim adornment!

    One of the few hand bashes it holds without steam, given the softness of the felt.

    The felt has a soft hand. Easily shaped. But needs a shot of steam to hold a more intricate bash..

    The interior is clean as the Board of Health in NJ!
