    Here's a cool work shot that wouldn't be a re-post:

    Stetson 3x OR on the stage of the Greek Theater at UC Berkeley, my family's flower shop was doing the floral arrangements that day.

    This one is a repost:

    I spend my summers working outside, and I'm never outside without a hat. This is probably from 2010 (or earlier). Here I am hanging around.

    VS Silverbelly

    I have already posted this in the Art Fawcett thread but thought I would include it here since it was at work.

    The hat is an Art Fawcett (Vintage Silohouettes) silverbelly with the same dimensions as a vintage Stetson Open Road. Thin ribbon and matching bound 2 3/4" brim, 5 1/2" open crown that is in a cattleman's crease.

    Thanks Randall, it is a very technical job, and I enjoy it because of that. It also gives me a lot of overtime, since qualified people are in short supply, and that overtime goes to travel. I'd love to give you a tour, but i know we live too far apart. I'm retiring in March, making it even less likely that I could give you a tour. I'm hoping to still be able to travel after retiring, but I'll just have to see how it works out. Thanks again. :)

    Well, I think of it that way, but it's government-owned. :) Those of us who "take ownership" of our work end up doing better jobs than those who say "good enough for gov't work." :)

    Opening up the gym for a morning practice last month. No hats for me during the practices!

    [​IMG]

    Practices are 7:00-10:00am and then 3:00-6:30pm during the week for our more advanced gymnasts. Our girls are "tuff, buff and pretty!" Air travel to training camps, and meets are part of the gig. Hats must travel well or they are not usefull.

    My hats spend long days around the gym schedule.

    Best to all, Eric -

    (Hats are: VS Executive, VS Stratoliner, 50's Stetson Stratoliner)

    Looks like you're enjoying those hats! I'm glad, as you could tell from a few they were just gathering dust.

    They're great! This Jaxon and the Lee Commentator have quickly become my favorites out of the bunch.

    Took the photo this morning. First day this autumn that I had to wear my heavier winter coat (temperatures dropping), so I also had to switch to my brown Federation IV. I work as a vocational teacher educator (teaching future teachers, that is) and since much of that teaching happens online, I'm usually at my computer.

    Thanks. All of Art's hats are impressive. You can't really tell from the picture but that is a big rig. That particular well it is drilling will be a total measured distance of a little over 16,000'. It will go approximately 9,000' vertically and then 7,000' horizontally. It takes a lot of power to pull that much pipe.

    I can't really wear a hat while I'm at work. I can only wear one to and from work. Both of these photos show me with the same hat...my Heritage Camp Draft.
