You saw it first here in this thread folks.
Lefty says UNCLE! lol
It's still a killer!
Love the look Mr.E, I've been watch one on the bay for a few days and hope to have it soon!!
Thanks, gremster. Say, in your avatar, is that Lester Young's pork pie? I'd like to see a larger version of that image.
You'll get no more than an "Unc" from me, sir. It makes me say "I want it", but as I can't stand having as many hats as I do (anything over about 4 bothers me), "I want it" is unlikely to turn into "I own it."
I must say Mr.E you do have a keen eye, indeed it is Mr. Lester Young's pork pie. I always loved a nice pork pie. I found the pic. by googleing Lester Young, Hope that helps you.
Just got my Capas catalog out, will be faxing in an order. Heck, I'll give her a shot on ebay. Next year, we'll design our own!
Ok we did everything and the books are on the surface we are trying to flatten out. We would appreciate any comments.

Assuming that you've still got the stretcher in the hat, it looks like you're doing exactly what I did. If you want the front to hang a bit deeper, as shown in my photo, attach a binder clip or chip clip to the front of the brim - you might want to have something between the clip and the hat, like a paper towel, to avoid marring the weave - and let it hang.
I ended up doing this more than once before I reached my desired result, so don't be frustrated if you're not pleased with the look right away.
Yes we set the hat stretcher in the hat just as you suggested. Joselyn did not want too much of a dip in the front so after some discussion we wet the front ever so slightly (nothing like the sides) and worked it down to where it is there. It has been this way for the last 6-8 hours so hopefully tomorrow we will see positive results. When Art sent the hat in the sides curved up oddly but the back looked great so we are thinking with the sides flattened out and the back up as it is here she will have a nice jaunty look to the hat. Keeping our fingers crossed for just one time but if not we will do it again.

The Primal Scream = a manual for Loungers with self-torquing Panamas....
What did one incorrigible Panama say to the other incorrigible Panama?
Yes we pulled books from the 70's through 2010 for our choices of weighty materials. Unfortunately we have more movements to get there.
No Screaming yet though.
Amadeo Lupi/Optimo Montecristi
This is the old Amadeo Lupi hat body from Panama seen earlier in the thread. http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showpost.php?p=948013&postcount=946
The ribbon is vintage French from a closed Millinery, but I found it on ebay Belgium. Optimo made up the hat this past week. The brim is 2-7/8" wide.
Excellent hat, beautiful color harmony between ribbon and hat body.
You wear it well!!!!
Amadeo would be also great with your DB suits, or linen suit or... it is great.

Semi Calado Montecristi before and after
Fantastic, rlk! :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap
RLK, that is really a fine looking lid. Congrats! The ribbon is outstanding.
Well I got this full calado Montecristi Panama hat body and my wife saw it. Then she asked me if I could do something with the hat so that she could wear it. So I thought about it and this is what I came up with. I figured since it is a Panama it should go in this thread.
