    A homburg in blue; it doesn't get much better than that, Bob. Magnificent.

    That is a most excellent shade of blue, Max. Lovely.

    I was putting most of my felts away for the summer and I made the mistake of counting and cataloging all my hats. I’ve decided to thin out 20-30 that don’t get much wear. Most are either not my style, lower quality entry level hats, or duplicates. I’m well into the triple digits and that was never my intention.

    Agnoulita thin ribbon (slightly less electric blue under a cloudy sky and indoor lighting).

  7. Thanks Stefan! I was very lucky to stumble on it for a $25 buy-it-now.

    One of my favorite conversions, but I'm partial to blue hats. This one is special.

    This is so incredible! Would love to see it more often.

    Love this tone in the sunshine Max. Superior hat.

    There must be some cobalt in there somewhere, buried in all that fuzzyness.

    Blue hat Poster Boy!

    With a price like that you can't press the BIN button quick enough! Great find.
     
  11. Thanks Mike! It may be Fall before we see it again. I need a hybrid in blue like yours.

    Thanks Stefan. A quick BIN is usually where I see the $99 shipping after I've hit it. Not this time though...

    Thank you, Michael. I have to say that I like this one too. Something about those older Red Liner Resistols really appeal to me. It was one butt ugly hat when I first got it, with its low tapered up crown and its taco brim. But when I started to take it apart, it was apparent that this hat was well made and the materials were top quality. I was glad that I was able to reuse and save everything that was original to the hat. Had to replace the sweat band, though. I was even able to save and reuse the original size tag and manufacturer's label! My thanks again to Michael R. for the gift. I'm glad I was able to give it new life

    I like this hat! I also appreciate how you quietly post photo after photo of some incredible hats. Your collection must be breathtaking and your nonchalance is the hallmark of a gentleman.

    Marine blue Agnoulita. I took it out of summer storage to send some PM photos and thought I’d give it one more wear.

    Some hat that, the broad ribbon and the lighter brim edge set it off a treat. And I tell you what, the shirt's not bad either, I've got just the hat to match that. One of the very few narrow brims that I own.
