    I own some seven vintage fedoras, two great old rode-hard, put up wet cowboy hats, a wide brimmed straw western
    style hat I purchased at a general store/gas station near Weedpatch south of Bakersfield and a couple of classic
    news boy caps. I confess. I rarely wear any of them. 2013 I will. Wrote it down.
    Giving myself four months to honor the above resolution. If I do, I plan to purchase a custom fedora fiscal cliff or no
    fiscal cliff.
    Any other resolutions out there?

    I resolve to sell off my straw and my black stingy, give a warm welcome to my special edition Campdraft by giving it a beautiful crease, and wear my homburg more.
    I'd say that I resolve to not buy hats this year, but we all know that's a lie!
     
  3. Uh, buy some more VS hats?

    I resolve to sell at least 50 of my hats which are not in my regular circulation and which are either too small or too large...and NOT buy another 50 hats to replace them.

    Ooh, getting rid of hats? I think that's the boldest resolution yet.

    For my part, my new years hat resolution is to acquire an Optimo 1000 Silverbelly. -M

    Excellent resolution! But once you do, you'll resolve to get another, and another, and then maybe one with a bound brim, and then...... :D

    I have to sort through all the above options to pick my next, but I know my next won't be my last.

    My first vintage Borsalino is on its way; if I can, I'll pick up a custom in the year to come!

    This upcoming year perhaps will be a real "dilly" for many of us bitten by the hat bug...having that knowledge merely makes me want to own all the wonderful hats I see posted all over the lounge.....but the reality is, I will continue to obtain a new hat, one hat at a time! A custom from Art is on the agenda, and the normal hat radar continues to show a blip on the screen now and then...full steam ahead, (is there any other way)?

    I'm not hard to please... I have about a dozen Akubras (mostly Federations) on my want list, and a couple of others. If I manage two or three this year I will be happy.

    Wear my homburgs more often - and buy a summer cap made by Johhny J.
