    P.S. I just sent you both an email to see if latest "fix" did any good. Please respond if you receive it. Thanks!

    Greetings all. I decided it was time to dump the old free email account in favor of a paid service through my website domain. The new email address is: rick@phoenixhatcompany.com
    Sorry for all the inconvenience and missed communications. Stay safe and healthy!

    Glad to know you're still doing well, Rick. Take time to take care of yourself with the added risks to the good work you're already doing.

    It's truly a nice, densely felted hat body. A little too thick and a little too stiff, however, I'm looking forward to beating the hell out of this one to see what can be accomplished.

    That’s what I’m talking about. Show no mercy until it becomes the equivalent of 1940s clear beaver. :)

    Some time ago I took a commission for two "The Son" hats. It was my first attempt at bound, pencil curled brims so I had some trepidation, but the fact that the brother in Illinois was buying identical hats for himself and his brother in Arizona clinched the deal. I can always get behind some good, old fashioned brotherly love. I hope they like them and wear them in good health always.

    Very nice! You really captured the look of the hat. There must be a couple of happy brothers out there.

    I really appreciate when hatters share works-in-progress photos. It helps with the wait and builds the anticipation. I know it takes a bit of time, but it’s these little things that set these hatters apart.

    Thank you, Rick!

    As the brother in Illinois, I can attest that we do both like them. Once I have a chance to steam and shape the brim a bit and figure out how to post photos again, I’ll give you some shots of the hat in the wild.

  16. Beautiful! You might not get a pair again, but I can bet someone else will reach out to you for this same hat.

    It’s the same pewter, but in different lighting. It’s not nearly this dark and the earlier photo is closer to being accurate. Rick said he didn’t find a shellac core and he’s going ahead with pouncing it thin for me. He tested a part of the brim trimming and unlike Winchester there isn’t a shellac core that you have to worry about if you pounce the felt to thin. High hopes for this one.

    Gorgeous! I know it to be selfish and wrong, but I want them both. One to wear, and one for the archives.
