    It’s not a very common color, and it’s not incredibly versatile, but it always makes me smile.

    It is a dyed natural 100% beaver felt, in Ricks Arizona style. After seeing the size of the felt before he started, I hated for him to cut off so much of the brim width, so he left it and got a good 4 inch brim even after the curl. His Arizona's are usually around 3 inch brim. The last pic is from outside this morning, and is just a tad lighter looking than the actual felt. But it is a very nice shade of brown, my wife called it Sable, color.
    Thanks again Rick for this great hat. I intend to wear it often. (the big brim will help hide my mug!)

    That is one nice hat! The Arizona XL is a winner in my book. Now I wish I had one.

    GREAT looking hat!!! I have something similar in his queue...

    Looking forward to it with great anticipation!

  15. The anticipation is half the fun...that’s what I keep telling myself.

    I just hope that when Ricks transitions to readymade hats he makes a few in my size and with large proportions!

    I agree with you Brent. I was thinking of telling him, "IF you WERE to make such in such hat, like this or that.....I'd get it!!!"
    Seriously, I'd be just as pleased with a "ready-made" of Ricks hats. He does such good work, and really takes care in his hat making. I'm wearing one he made for me today actually. I love it.

    Love that hat! Natural is such a great colour that I don't think gets enough love. Did you go western weight to get the brim width?

    Yes, as a size 59cm I should be okay when he transitions to ready to wear. I love Rick's work....he is a brilliant hatter.

    Yes. And it's not really that heavy feeling. Originally I was going to go with a 3 inch-ish brim, (easier for driving in the truck) but when Rick told the dimensions that were possible once he started working it, I hated for him to cut it down! So asked to keep as much as possible. I'm very pleased with how it came out. Rick did such a great job on this one.

    I have an 'Arizona' style hat that Art made for me in his Limestone colour, a darker natural or very light granite. It is a very stiff dress weight with the 3" brim.
