    Nice vita felt. They seem to be popping up lately. Alan, can you direct to a thread about them please?
    Are they strictly a Stetson phenom?
    Thanks

    VERY cool! I would have loved to see the sweatband as well! I can see that the crown height on the re-order tag reads 4 3/4, but I can't make out the block number. Is it legible on your end?

    Good thread on vita felt ,Thanks Alan .
     
  7. +1, a rather contentious thread at times, too.

    Thanks Josh. It appears to be Block 828, you'll have to ask Whitaker to be sure.

    What is Vita-Felt, exactly?

    Just kidding. :)

    A distant cousin of Vinyon?

    Very odd collection of elements - price tag I've never seen, what appears to be a vinyl sweatband, but with a very leather like nap in the back... I'm not sure. Will post more pictures after I have given it a bit more shape. Vinyon related to PVC - first manufactured in 1939.

    Vinyon: a vinyl-rayon blend?

    That would be nice... It's polyvinyl chloride.

    Also no Stetson manufacturing labels in the hat. Wondering if this was manufactured by Stetson or under license?

    Or, a wine-nylon blend.

    Phil Kronfeld NYC Beaver Twenty

    Made by Caxton. Very light and soft and finely finished-not a stiff brim either.

    Wow, Robert, that Beaver Twenty is really nice. Interesting aside, on one of your previous posts, I read "CREAM of Canada", not Crean. Funny how one letter makes such a difference!

    Very interesting info on the Vita-felt, thanks for the info, Alan. And, speaking of nutria, I had a terrific Nutria Borsalino Homburg, that I traded to Bond. I didn't like the homburg look, and was too inexperienced to realize I could favorably alter the appearance of the hat, with just a little effort. I'm still angry with myself for letting that hat get away.

    Charcoal derby by Guerra 1855 for W&W. A gift I received.

    That derby is quite the gift, Ale, someone has good taste. I could never wear it, but I'll bet it looks spectacular on you.

    Thanks. Not planning on wearing it, either. This and my top hat are the only display-only hats that I own.
