My grandfather passed away in 1991 at the age of 81. I had never really considered that he wore hats; I never saw him in one other than a straw work hat. But he was from a generation that certainly wore hats, and my Dad mentioned that he thought there was still an old hat or two of my grandfather's. He checked with my grandmother, and sure enough, one of his old hats survives! Well, sort of: As you can see, it's seen better days. It's an Adams with a brim of 2.5". Measured from the side, the crown is a little under 5". The lining is a mess; the sweatband has disintegrated. It's filthy. The good news is, I can't find any real problems with the felt other than some possible light moth damage to the underside of the brim. Note the cool ribbon treatment. My intention is to send this off to Optimo for a complete rebuild. I hope they can work a miracle and make it live again.
