    Thanks BB, it will be interesting to see how it holds up to getting wet. I may shellac it.

    Nude beaches. Sounds good on paper, but the execution never achieves the ideal.

    Apart from it being green it is a wonderful hat, Jonathan.

    With a Borsalino you're always fully dressed!

  11. Maybe that's why they call it Donkey Beach.

    Here's one I picked up recently. Borsalino Suprema in the colour Sider. Size 60 (6 1/2) with the bound brim at 5,5cm and the crown at 10,5cm at the center dent. Nice shark gill or box pleat bow on this one, My guess is early seventies.

    I usually see these hats in grey, so that was enough reason to pick this one up, even if it isn't in my size. Hückel Welheim Chamois in brown. Size 57 with the bound brim at 7cm and the crown at 10,5cm at the center dent. As always with these Hückel Chevreau or Chamois finishes the hand of the felt is outstanding.

    We live near Ogden, Utah & went down to historic 25th street for breakfast and to buy a Mother's Day card - oops, that will arrive a bit late! The street was blocked off... the farmer's market must be starting. Nope.... Ogden is known as Junction City: the golden spike that joined the transcontinental railroad was actually pounded in maybe 50 miles northwest of here, but the system junction came here soon after. Yesterday was the 150th anniversary of the event, but the big party seems to be today, on historic 25th street, with Union Station at one end. There are some big steam locomotives in town as part of the celebration. And, as it turns out, JW Custom Hats of Salt Lake City, since 1853, made some commemorative hats! More amazing, there was one in 7 3/4! It was like twice as expensive as any hat I'd ever bought, but the guy who owns JW was there... too good to pass up!

    I love the hat! It looks proportioned similar to the Bat Masterson style rather than the city/dress homburg. I really like the bigger brim and taller crown on yours, and you wear it well.

    Good to see that JW Custom Hats is still in business too.

    Just received this straw hat. It appears to be unworn. I still don't know the type of straw, but it is flexible and the storage damage will be an easy fix. I'm very happy with this one.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Now that's vented. I like that one, Dd. I'm trying not to buy any more straws but these vented ones are tempting.
