I think its about time I introduce myself since I've been around here for a little while. My names Dan, I'm from the great white north (Canada), and so far my only hat a cheap wool fedora, the one in my avatar. I hope to get a canadian made biltmore while I still can, I already missed out on their open road because I didnt know how hard it was to shape and customize it, and now theyre gone. After scouring this site for picures and info, I think I've decided on a biltmore ark. My other considerations were the rosellini and eleganza. My only concern is if the that would suit me because I can't get to any hat shop to try it on, because the only ones that I know of are either hours away in toronto, or the guy across the border in buffalo. I do have a passport but I'm not sure if I can drive there with my g2 license. If any of you have owned or seen these hats, I'd like to hear your opinion of them.
