After a lifetime of ball caps and cheap hats, my doctor has become insistent that I embrace full brims and sunblock. I headed for the Internet to evaluate my options, and have spent a good bit of time reading at FL. I’ve now purchased a modern Stetson in black outback style - like an Akubra Cattleman. Two vintage Stetsons, a NOR Western Royal, and a 7X CB. I also have two vintage custom westerns coming, one a full beaver Roberts and an 8X Bar10. Finally, I have a Grady’s (G. Nutt from TX) and a Stetson Nutria on their way from a new friend in South Florida. I’ve been wearing my NOR most every day, and have spent some time working on it and the 7XCB bashes and brims with hands and steam along with a few helpful hat jacks to get the look and fit I’m after. I’m very grateful for all the info, stories and cool personalities I’ve encountered by lurking at FL so far, and look forward to interacting more as time goes on.
