    Thanks, Joe. Good call on the Champ. It actually has the same liner!

    Makes me wonder if Champ and Dunlop shared manufacturing at that time. I mean sure the space race was certainly taking over the consciousness of the 60’s the same way Buzz Lightyear took over cowboy Sheriff Woody’s place in Andy’s room in Toy Story. But those liners being that exact... I doubt a coincidence.

    Best,
    Joe

    Mayser "Spezial", 61 cm, possibly early 1950s. The dark blue felt is fantastic (color, finish) and easily dry creases. As usual great dressing work (ribbon/bow, sweatband, liner) It's also in NOS condition so probably rarely if ever worn.

    So much to like about that Mayser, Steve. Not least everything. Great find.

    Picked up this Stetson 3X on Goodwill for $14. Wasn’t sure about it so thought I would use it as a beater, but it’s actually pretty nice, other that the hat band (Ugh !).

    It came with the brim curled up Western Style and pretty stiff, but I got the steamer out and flattened it out on the sides and turned the front and back down. Was going to rework the bash, but the Wife says she likes it, and it looks like a ‘Clint Eastwood Hat’, LOL.

    I kinda like it, so may keep it like this and find a new hat band.

    I like that liner. Definitely a cool looking hat. Don’t think the hat band is THAT bad. Though it does look like a nice belt for a really small individual.

    Best,
    Joe

    Nice one! Those Stetson Revengers can definitely stand a better hat band. It looks good though.

    You have to see it in person. Plastic leather with a plastic ‘buckle’.

    Ahh, Revenger, that’s what it is, I was trying to figure that out, thanks !

    I can’t believe Stetson would use a plastic hat band. Man, not like the old days.

    I think I’ll stick with vintage....
