    Optimo McQueen in Silverbelly. Stiff felt. Color is accurate in the pics.

    Optimo Oxblood Dillinger, but with a wider brim. I wanted the wider brim anyway, and it's my size, so I couldn'r resist @bond's offer to buy it at less than half the price of a new one.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I sent pictures of the blue/gray hat to Tiffani in Optimo, and she says it's a new color, Blue Pearl. That's a Heirloom Felt that costs $1200! No wonder I liked it!
    She said the model is a modified Dearborn. Modified because it has a wide brim, I guess.
    The swatch in Optimo's site sure looks a lot different than the actual color. The same thing happened with most of my other Optimo hats.

    Two wonderful additions, Max. I think I like the oxblood better.

    Max: great catch there! When i first saw it it immediately reminded me of a vintage Borsalino Featherweight in gray i have. It too, changes color faster than my ex-wife’s mood ring!!
    Really good couple of hats you got from @bond!!

    The felt in the Blue Pearl is much thinner and denser, Stefan. The brim might be too wide for my face, but I don't care. It is a gorgeous hat.

    Hello Doctor, the swatches don't look like the finished product color. That's because they have not been pounced yet. I agree, they look different.

    I like the ribbon. Did Optimo do the ribbon?

    Yes. It is an unaltered Optimo hat, like new.

    Optimo Montecristi Classic Fedora

    So fine. At $2,500 I am sticking to the beaver furs in the future.
