    ......well that's what it says on the sweatband!:D I just got this one in......just couldn't resist it.....I liked the "look" and the price was right. It's called a "Masterbuilt"....on the sweat it says "custom made", "soilproof", & "Deluxe Quality". Castanza would describe the liner as having a "pinkish hue". There are a few moth bites here and there, but overall appears to be a pretty nice hat.:)

    Tommy, I have to do SOMETHING with all that overtime I've been putting in.:D lol lol


    ....Dinerman, I'm not sure what is up with that. There is no bow, so perhaps this was a "lazyman's" way to dress it up???

    it does set it apart though.
    are you going to try to work in those moth nibbles?

    I might very well try to. I've never done much in the way of "restoring" on any of my hats, but this would be a good one to start on. If I mess up, not much lost!

    Neat hat!

    Looks like you may be able to get 'rid' of the nibbles.
    If you try it just take your time. Take a sharp straight pin and lightly pull the felt up and in and around the nibble. Do a little at a time till you get comfortable with what you are trying to do. You may want to start on one that is not as visible so if you DO mess up a little it cant be seen as well.
    I have taken the finest sandpaper after working on a spot and sand it ever so lightly.
    If you do give it a try please let us know how it turns out.
    GOOD LUCK !!!

    Like Buttah!:D



    Thanks Douglas, and thanks for the tips RBH I'll have to give it a try.
     
  10. Or you could hunt down the guilty moths, force them at flamepoint to regurgitate the felt, and plug up the offending holes with it. Works every time.

    Another nice hat. Love those odd little wind trolley
    buttons on the pugaree. I think I need a tattoo of
    that awesome Masterbuilt logo.

    Not as cool as that homburg, tho. Sigh.
