I recently purchased a heather Portis porkpie from Sam (aka Casechopper) that was a tad too big for me and that had some duly noted moth-bite issues. I really am drawn to that heather felt, and it's such a rarity to find in larger sizes, so off it went to a capable hat wizard. I figured it could be flipped inside out to hide the moth action, be re-blocked from porkpie to fedora, get a fresh sweatband, and be graced with a mid-ribbon to match its brim binding. I am happy to report that Mr. Tom Gomez was up to the task! Pictures to follow. :)

Redone hat has arrived. Kudos to Tom Gomez for his meticulous work and excellent communication throughout the process. If you have any fedoras that need reworked, I highly recommend him.

This will be worn often, I think, as it is casual and versatile enough to go with just about anything. If it looks awful, don't tell me!

Too bad Garrett isn't posting anymore, he could add pages to this thread. Here's one of his amazing heathers featuring purple/blues/greens/grays/golds/maybe more. This pix doesn't do it justice:



Or something from your own hand, the only heather I own:

Here is a new one that showed up today



It had a textured brim which is interesting. The ridges have worn away in the front of the brim where I assume it was handled the most or perhaps ironed to smooth it out at some point. Either way, It has some really nice colors and the heatered felt is still in great shape.
