I only autograph the crowns I make in the lab.
Wow. That is really quite a hat!
Very nice Randy. Pre-1968 for sure.
Peters Bros Shady Oaks Banker's Special Seventy-five with the 7X Switzerland hood.
HJ, I can’t wait to see more of this one; perhaps more so than many of recent memory. Having recently had some offline conversations about different Peters Brothers Shady Oak hats, this one popping up is pretty cool, especially with the hood. I know they’re are a few around that have some of these hats in varying grades. Hope they will weigh in.
Thanks BB! Brad Peters has been quoted as saying they used the Swiss hoods up into the early 1960's. I hope to learn more about the differences between the PB Shady Oaks & the Shady Oaks Bankers Special, & the PB Shady Pines. I seem to recall someone here having a Shady Pines also (@carouselvic). We've hit a snag on uncovering new info on the Stetson Shady Oak Farms Amon Carter. We'll have to move this to an appropriate thread.
Nice find Randy. Looks great on you.
Max, I'm jealous, just how big is the warehouse you live in?
Very nice! Congrats Jack.
Thanks Joe. Thanks all.
100٪ beaver Penman Indy. Rather stiff and thickish felt. The brim teimming is uneven in a spot. I like the shape, though
This is part of an email I received from Brad Peters a few years ago.
“The brim looks a little bigger than a shady oaks this very possibly could be what was called a shady pine pretty much same just about a 1/4 bigger brim.”
considering that an oak is a bigger tree than a pine I would think the opposite .
Get outta here with your logic.
Thanks Bill. I remember you have had a couple SOBS hats. Could you post the complete email in the thread I started for documentation purposes (unless it contains personal info, of course)?
At a height of over 273 feet and a diameter of over 8 feet the Sugar Pine (Pinus Lambertiana) is over twice as tall as the tallest oak and would give the largest oak a run for its money for board feet of lumber.
Get outta here with your facts.
You should go into politics, Jim
Excellent find, Steve. Wonderful hat.
