    Stefan, Again, you had a really amazing hat hunt! JHS Velour is hard to beat. You can really see the quality (high density, tight clipped, high gloss).

    Stefan, some absolutely fantastic finds. Why do most of the good hats end up in Holland :)

    I'll be looking at those again and again this weekend, too.

    Thanks, Brent. It really is quite the hat. While undeniably very green it's also so dark in colour that it's almost subdued. Of all the hats I find myself handling the Hückel the most. That felt is really something else.

    Steve, thanks again. It is true; while the FGM Bayerland has some wonderfult velour felt, the Hückel is just a few notches above it in quality. Very pettable hat!

    Thanks, Steve. I'll admit I was quite surprised at both the number and the quality of hats I found yesterday. Up untill now there was next to nothing to be found. Why Holland? It may have to do with some of the big players in secondhand clothing being located here.

    Certainly a unique vent hole pattern on that one.

    This is my new hat, a Stetson twenty with mode edge. I like the hat, but I don't look good in it. Any thoughts on making it wearable?

    This certainly turned out even better than I expected. I see no evidence of it ever having been worn. The lighting does not show the true color, which is a rich charcoal, almost black.

    Seller included the original sales receipt from 1964. 2 1/4” brim, 4 3/4” crown (maybe another 1/8” if you open the crown).

  10. Brush it, steam it, get it into a shape you like. As long as you don’t put any sharp bends in the felt it is forgivable stuff and you can experiment until you find a shape you like. Nice hat!

    Hats so nice I had to look twice! Amazing array of hats, Stefan, but for you to rank a green hat the undisputed #1...;)

    That would be two of us that hate that style. I've heard it referred to as a Taco hat and a rodeo hat. Our most famous hat shop in the Stockyards of OKC makes that style of hat, in any color and size.

    Thank you, Joe.

    To be honest I did check my pulse and temperature right away:D

    See? It doesn't even look that green (or am I kidding myself here?).

    Very nice, Marcel. Nice colours and contrast. Just enough going on without being over the top.
