    Adam Executive - The E-VENT
    F27E9C56-0A60-4016-A20A-1247CB222230.jpeg

    Adam Executive - The E-VENT
    Light Pecan Colored Ultra Light Felt
    4 3/4 crown as shaped - about 5 1/2 open
    Unlined and vented
    2 5/8 brim with very short underwelt
    Two rows of brim stitching
    3/4 inch matching grosgrain ribbon
    Box pleat/gills treatment

    The latest arrival, which came off a hot tip from Brent @deadlyhandsome, is the Adam Executive - E-Vent. It was without a doubt the unusual ribbon styling with a decorative wind trolley button sewn on for good measure along with the cool vent pattern that caught my eye. But upon arrival there is so much more to love. This unlined felt is super soft and ultra thin. That sort of “blow a crease in it” kind of felt… but somehow incredibly obedient. The brim is 2 5/8 with a narrow underwelt and two rows of brim stitching. I couldn’t tell if the E-Vent sweat cooling system really worked… but it did FEEL like it was cooler.. may have been my imagination. It really is an Exquisite hat that fits absolutely perfectly. Thank you again Brent for thinking of me on this one.

  3. Super hat, Joe. I’m glad the rest of the hat lived up to the bow and vents!

  4. A secondhand custom homburg from Joe The Hatter Custom Hats, Harrisburg, PA. “Style Bilt Hats” “Supreme Individuality”. Equal to the nicest homburgs I’ve seen from Stetson, Borsalino, etc.

    Thank you I am really super happy with this one. If it weren’t for some other spectacular hats already en-route this one will keep my fancy for a while.

    Last hat taken from a Borsalino felt and worked by Fleur
    Prussia Borsa 5.jpg
    The hat was originally for women and very large in proportions, bought in the USA.
    Prussia Borsa 4.jpg
    It size was 57 cm a 7 in US, but the brims were wide that it could be reblock into a 59 1/2 which is my measurement
    Prussia Borsa 1.jpg
    What deeply attracted me was the "Prussian Blue" color and the velour finish.
    Prussia Borsa 6.jpg
    The transformation was done with a tone-on-tone ribbon and a hat shape with wide brim and a full-sized crown.
    Prussia Borsa 3.jpg
    measurements are as follows: brims at 6.5 cm. keep the original hemming so the same color was used for the ribbon, it is 4.5cm high and the crown at its lowest point is 11cm.
    Prussia Borsa 2.jpg
    The operation was very successful despite the enlarged size and the "resistance" of the Borsalino felts in losing the original imprint

    Thanks Marcel. My investment, after collecting dozens of ready-to-use hats, is to work on antique felts for new hats. Up to now the projects put in place have given good results with the indispensable contribution of Fluer. Also add a bit of luck in finding excellent quality felt cones or disassembled hats. Marcel, I have a couple of interesting proposals for your collection. I'll send you something next week :)

    Thanks a lot Joe. Your Adam Executive is fantastic! One of those hats I will remember

    Thank you Daniele. It is headed out the door for day number three in a row with me. I’d say it’s definitely a quick favorite
