    I think it's a nice hat and a good job. But w all due respect is that pug as wide as it appears in the last pic...?

    Hi

    What all colors does Peter's Brother's make now? I have several Sun Body's that I need to replace. I like the Indy style, so I wouldn't mind getting a couple of PB Milan's. I doubt I'd want the black, but you never know.

    Thanks

    I have two PB milans;one a brown Indy,the other is natural.When I visited with them we didn't talk available colors but the person helping me offered that they didn't make white any longer.

    Agree with Moe, straw weather seems a long ways off. Currently 18F here. Looks like a very nice body Chris

    We're having the opposite situation. It's just getting cool enough down here for felts. I wear them most of the time anyway, but it's nice to wear one and not sweat while doing so. The Fed IV hasn't come off my head (except to sleep) since it emerged from under the Christmas tree. I love the black felt!

    Thanks for the comments and likes guys. Now to perhaps accentuate your and my longing for summer! -

    Knox size 7 ¼ in light grey and unworn. I note the price of $18, so would be grateful if anyone can pin down the approximate date for me – I’m assuming 60’s -70’s.

    SWEET find, Chris! My age guesstimate also puts it in the late 70s. But I was wrong once before...

    Ah, spring - the time to unpack some straw favorites ready for the hot days that are in the near future.

    One of my most finely woven hats is this Disney milan. The ribbon work by straw hat master, Tom Gomez

    Braggart! One of my all-time top FL Favorites, David... SO beautiful! Might you find time to photograph the top and interior of this masterpiece, in a bit higher res, so to see the real beauty; the detail? I love this one, Dave!!!

    Thank you, Gentlemen. This was a hat that sat for ages in eBay with a way high BIN price. I made a sensible offer and the buyer agreed.

    Sir Charles, I'll see what I can do for photos.
