    Héctor, you seem to have a magician's topper that you just keep on pulling wonderful hats out of. That Navy Gannon with blue metal ribbon is fantastic.
    The photos in the background are really cool, too.

    Thanks Steve. I do rather like the color. I may cast about for alternate ribbons and maybe flatten out the flange a bit. I'll see how bored I get in the next couple of weeks. Ha ha.

    I’m 0 for 2 in my latest attempts for hats outside or inside of my size range. My latest attempt, thanks to some MO enablers, one Setter, the other Retriever. I thank them both for their time and especially the effort of the Retriever to secure the hat. Probably the cleanest 3X OR I’ve seen and certainly the nicest one under my roof. The great thing about this one is the felt. Thin and dense with a fine finish. My only other 3X OR is likely a 40’s Model with an oilcloth protected LD liner and the same dimensions as this one. 2 7/8 x 5 1/2.

    This hat appears to be a much more recent rendition. Most notably there are no mfg labels underside and the LD liner is spot glued. The surprising thing about this hat is the felt. It is much more dense and thin than one I would have expected from this era. Every bit the equal of my 40’s hat and perhaps better and it does have a better finish. Makes me think of a new hat made with an old blank. Just my thoughts, not a claim. A really soft dress weight OR that can be shaped with a swipe.

    The 0 for 2 part is that it doesn’t fit, a bit off. Thought she wanted it but no.

  8. That's a shame. Such a nice looking (and feeling apparently) hat.

    I believe your Stetson is the Buccaneer mode.

    I'm not so certain. The brim stitching is there, but not the edge binding and two-tone ribbon.

    It is fantastic and these velours are so hard to resist even if they are not your size. I know what that felt must feel like and petting it would be great (must resist though). Great find, Daniele.

    Oooh, that is a very attractive hat, Daniele. Even if it does need a little TLC, it tciks all the boxes.

    Cool find, Joe. I like the look of that felt; sometimes the old hatters could do wonders with wool.
