    You are correct, sir. I was mistaken. And it should be there!

    Agreed. There’s a few I think are worthy of adding but stumbling across them with a bump is sometimes just as fun.

    I finally joined the Playboy club. When I was younger I imagined it to be a very different club. At my age I'm nearly as excited....

  4. Buying hats is a whole lot cheaper than going out with a stack & making it rain, believe me.

    Glorious light brown Bon Vivant! The stitched brim appears to be excellent condition. As you get more opportunities to wear it I am curious to read your impressions. Do share.

    I have been finding the last couple of years my Playboys get reached for often. Great hats, IMO.

    Cheers and congrats.

    Short trip today but the Playboy is a fantastic partner. Looks fantastic in casual attire and equally good dressed up. The brown 20200801_085039_copy_1209x1612.jpg hue really swings with the light source becoming more light earthy in the sunlight. The exquisitely sized ribbon takes on a caramel hue in bright sun.

    Yeah ... I removed that staple.

    The hat is about the color of this slide taken on our trip to Chicago (my Dad's home town) in the early 1970s.

    Wow! That is just plain a sharp hat in a very scarce felt color. The unlined Playboys are truly my fav's of this model. Congrats sir!
     
  16. Thanks Eric! I just knew there was just something about that lump of hat sitting on the table in that auction lot (they did not list what it was). I was thrilled when it arrived and it was my size.
