Nice shape to it, Mikael and I really like the colour combination. I wouldn't call that a shark gill bow though; I think that is more a boxpleat bow.Here is something unique. It started as a custom order for a GORM FEDORA. The customer ended up going for a shark gill ribbon at the back. The felt is a 50X Beaver Blend in Camel color. 2.5 inch brim, 5 inch crown. The ribbon is 70mm wide.

You're pricing yourself completely out of my range.Bogart Fedora for a regular customer in New York! Made out of the last 30X Beaver Blend felts in Emerald Gray. I am not planning on replenishing this felt type as I will focus on keeping 50X Blend (50%) and 100X Beaver.
I am sorry to hear that. I am happy to have crafted a hat for you and I do wish to keep you on as a regular customer. But times are different for everyone.You're pricing yourself completely out of my range.
Great work. Can I ask about the brim work, do you have a "homburg" curling shackle, maybe a special flange, or are you using another method to put the curl in? Just curious, love the work.
Thank you very much! Yes I use curling shackles among other unconventional methods.Great work. Can I ask about the brim work, do you have a "homburg" curling shackle, maybe a special flange, or are you using another method to put the curl in? Just curious, love the work.
Please understand that I do not wish to offend and that I also can find some prices difficult to justify, that being said... These hats are exceptional and this is a rare level of both art and craftmanship. I would rather see them priced at luxury values than to see them and the maker lost to history. As to a decision to elevate/restrict the material quality to the highest levels, well good on you. I recognize the material quality as an essential foundation for all my purchase considerations, and yes I hope one day to procure a hat or two from this source, and yes I will need to take measures to allocate funds. I think they are worth it and applaud the intent to adhere to higher quality standards.
Keep up the GOOD work!
