    Bespoke made by Esther, she suggested a Strat-like shape and hit the nail right on the head. It topped off my wedding outfit to perfection, how it compliments my linen suit of similar colour. So versatile is it, that it's a perfect match for a summer blazer too.

    I love blue hats. Blue is probably my favorite color for a hat. I've gone from none to four in short order. Clockwise from top left: My Washington Nationals give-away, Hats in the Belfry pork pie, Dobbs Rosebud, Stetson Frederick. BlueHats.jpg

    Those are fabulous hats, and such a range of hues, I love them, compliments to you. The colour of the second and third is easily identifiable as navy blue, not so mine. To get the best example of a colour, photograph it outside. This shot of my navy Susquehanna fedora, actually looks black, but if I tell you that the jacket, which also looks black, is a navy blue Acquascutum blazer, you can see how artificial light distorts the colour.

    I never thought to post this hat here. This is a Navy Blue Pendleton 3X Resistol Western that I converted to a fedora last year. The hat was originally gifted to me by Michael R. I took it completely apart and reworked it. I reused the original hat band and brim binding. I also reused the original red liner, size tag, and sweat band bow. I did have to put a new sweat band in it....

  9. Thanks Bowen. Probably Cobalt Blue (Cobalto?). One of the tags has been removed.

    I wish I were able to make something like that.
    No chance of learning, living in Mexico, though. I do get to bake beautiful porcelain crowns in the lab once in a while, but I think I would enjoy making hats more. More artistic freedom to do them as I wanted.

    Sure you can. Read through the Conversion Corral thread. There's a lot of good info there. Buy yourself a few hat tools and materials, apply your desire to make hats, and you're in business.

    Nice blue hat, Brent. It does better in the daylight in my opinion. Thinning the herd? Already?
