  1. Maybe @Chamuco will make an appearance with his powder blue Gannon. We haven’t seen him around lately.

    I love those wrapped bow designs.

    That might even work on a homburg, eh Robert @belfastboy ?

    Dang! That hat is sharp! The powder blue and trimmings combine to make one heck of a sharp hat. The bow/keep is a terrific ribbon treatment and stands out in the crystal framed by powder blue.

    Congrats on the wow fedora. I can not wait to see pics of your hat adventures in powder blue.

    Thanks, gents. By the reactions, I'd say Michael really knocked this one out of the park.

    My feelings, as well.

    Yes out of the park. Big flat powerful swing that meets the ball with the iconic "crack" and is the signal for the eye to look towards the upper deck in left field!

    Ever notice when you hit a ball like that, you don't even feel it?

    Thanks, Bill!

    Absolute perfection!
    That is the hat I dreamt of when I ordered my first Gannon, but at the time he could not get the felt. Your choice of ribbons and stylistic elements!!!
    Outstanding!

    Yes, I am working up a 'practice felt' for myself and will attempt this bow work so I don't have to inflict my first attempt on a client!

    I have been procrastinating getting in Michael's queue as I can't decide on a style and colour. Methinks I need to just get in the queue and when my ticket comes up it will force me to make a damned decision. Time for another Gannon.

    Try reaching out to Major Moore at Buckaroo Hatters in Covington, TN. They were responsible for the hats used in the most recent Hank Williams movie.

    Looks great Brent, congrats! Do you know if Michael brings in sunrise felts directly? I would get nailed with all kind of extra shipping costs if I went that direction.
