    not sure how many of you are aware of this fine young hat maker Michael Gannon .. but he is doing some very nice work

    I love to support the independent hatters and have a soft spot for the young guys

    I have been in contact with Michael for a little bit now designing a custom that he is about to make for me

    this thing is going to be a beauty

    classy but not too dressy
    elegant with rugged tones

    big boxy crown with a mid ribbon

    can't wait to have it in hand to show all of you

    check out his stuff and give him some support

    he is a really good guy and someone who is going to make a few waves in this industry

    I've seen his Etsy postings.

    Elegant with rugged tones sounds pretty good to me! Let us know how you like it when you get it.

    I have wondered; what is it about Oregon that produces 4 outstanding custom hatters? NW Hats, VS, Penman and Gannon, and I have Black Sheep just a bit north of them in Washington.

    That's what I'm saying

    His prices are nice and the hats are quality

    Rabbit - $145
    Beaver - $195

    I'll give a full report when I get the hat and hopefully more will order

    Getting in on the ground floor so to speak. ;)

    Rainy long dark winters. Why aren't you making hats, same applies for BC.

    Yes, never thought of the rain aspect, it is not a rumour. We have one hatter in BC but only make women's. They sell men's hats but are overpriced. But they do offer full hat restoration services and I have used them for that. Their work is good. But to get a bespoke hat I have to travel to Oregon.....not that that is a bad thing as I love Oregon and will use any excuse to go there.

    Attaboy, Richard!! Looks fantastic, sir! And thanks for refreshing my memory of Oregon's nickname. No wonder there are so many hatters there. HOW could I forget that?

    Hmmmmmm. Oregon does have the beaver moniker but did they ever have a hat maker's presence in the past? No brands I know of were made there. I've never been aware of Oregon being a trapper's haven either.

    Oregon was a major source of beaver pelts as raw material for hats in the 18th century. John Astor claimed and established Astoria and the area as a shipping point in the fur trade. Many historians consider the creation of Astoria as fundamental to the US claim to the Pacific Northwest.
