That is a Cool Tumwater with a ribbon that compliments it immensely.
My Stratton, which I threw on today, is different than most of my lids because it doesn't have a ribbon which is the same color or a darker shade of the hat but still both colors are earth tones. It's a little snug but still comfortable. Oh, and the sweat is green as well.
Stratton being a huge supplier of police officer hats, the colors may be leaning more on the uniform side... Designed for utility rather than beauty.
I may have to swap to brown on this one....I should take the one off my black hat. haha
Nice thread! I hope it continues. TonyB,conjures up an era with an inner city attitude that to me are why men wore hats! A neighborhood thing along with Comforts,highly polished,leather jacket full length,or a jacket waist coat herringbone grey and white or black and white. You didn't fight, you met your opponent on the dance floor and beat him there! Ah for the good old days!
The first photo is a 30's Dobbs with its original ribbon. The 5th photo is the original Feiges ribbon but with the bow and knot design re-worked. The rest are collaborations between myself and Bob Jessee. All vintage designs using NOS ribbon.
