    No, not really. There aren't any decent felts made in Mexico, and he doesn't have the equipment for pouncing, etc., anyway.

    I just bought the John Cavanagh you told me about, Brent.
    As I said, I had seen it many times, but I didn't consider buying it because I don't really like Gay Prince-looking hats, but as you pointed out, it looks to be both old and rare.
    Besides, if I have to have at least one GP, it might as well be this one.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    This was listed for $150. The seller accepted my offer of $30. It never hurts to ask.

    A little shaping and it should make a decent airy summer beater.

    I stupidly forgot to mention that the pictures of the hat were taken by Alan. I am very sorry for not crediting you for them, Alan!

    Groveling keeps one humble.
    That’s an incredible hat and even if I had no idea what it was I’d be able to tell it was something very special.
