Still waiting for him to show the Exposition.
Anyone know of any dealers who are carrying the Absinthe?
I really like the looks of that one . . .
Jeff at Delmonico's said he'd put an order in if some of us wanted one. Might have to wait til the summer for Hatco to ramp up felt production again
I have to wonder about the price tag on the new Stetson hats. For just a little bit more, you can get a custom with better felt, better fit, and styled exactly to your specifications. Just sayin'.
I am in TommyK
Apparently the whippet is going to be a featherweight felt:
I'd guess you guys know by now that Sterling Leather has the Absinthe.
And mighty tempting at $166 with free shipping using that coupon code.....
I'm going to try to go there hopefully in the next week or two, Bucks County/New Hope is about an hour away from me. We'll see if they actually have any of these in stock. Will let you guys know what I find out.
Ok, now this is exciting:
Undyed belly fur felts!
Only narrow brims?
Matt's Instagram is full of cool looking stuff: purple-trim Strats, cognac Whippets with green trim, reissued derbies & homburgs...
He's going to cost me a lot of money
I wish there was more about where and when this stuff will be available.
Joao, the westerns have their own catalog
Some of them look pretty nice.
I'll add, Joao, that Deckard's Instagram does have several pictures of westerns, although the fedoras definitely outnumber them. I saw several shots of the Boss reissue, a custom Boss in white for a country singer, a Tom Mix, and a bunch of unidentified white cowboy hats with what look like wide brims and fairly tall crowns with a Gus crease. There were also several shots of straw westerns.
So there are some wide-brims on his site, but the dress models appear more often.
Well I do not have a instagram account nor I do check anything there so I only saw that picture.
Does anyone know whether the binding ribbon on the Racine in Caribou matches the hat ribbon or the hat (assuming the hat ribbon is black)?
Don't think anyone has seen all the ribbon combo's on the new hats. I ordered 4 of the new open crowns from Jeff a month or so ago. At that time he was trying to get more info on the Whippet, and the Racine open crowns. Haven't heard back. I ordered the Whippet in Sage and the Racine in black.........mmmm think it was the Racine in black....lol
I have a Stetson Hemingway straw on order from Fedoras.com , I haven't heard yet when I can expect it, but
I will let everyone know when it arrives.
That's a good description. I have a Stetson Hampton and used to have a Stetson Brewster, both in Sovereign felt with silk finish (it looks like Royal Deluxe is the new Stetson designation for Sovereign). The Hampton is quite velvety, and feels more like vintage to me, fairly malleable. They are indeed a bit shiny and really nice to touch, sort of like a short-haired velveteen rabbit.
I posted a review of the Brewster here on the lounge, the pictures show the texture of the silk finish:
I've had a sage Chatham for many years. It is a go-to hat for me, as it goes with tan outerwear well, but also gray. In the daylight, it has a distinct green cast, like a muted olive green. In the evening it really just looks medium gray.
