Adam Executive - The E-VENT
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.
Super hat, Joe. I’m glad the rest of the hat lived up to the bow and vents!
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.
Really nice Brent. Looks similar to the very light grey color one my Dobbs 15 hommie
my latest from Mike at Northwest Hats - Navy Homburg with burgundy ribbon
I love the mid ribbon shark's gill treatment.....a great version.
Wow! What a hat!
Thanks Robert. Really loving this one.
Two great custom homburgs. The regal classic and the funky contemporary!
Wonderful hat, Joe!
Last hat taken from a Borsalino felt and worked by Fleur
The hat was originally for women and very large in proportions, bought in the USA.
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
What deeply attracted me was the "Prussian Blue" color and the velour finish.
The transformation was done with a tone-on-tone ribbon and a hat shape with wide brim and a full-sized crown.
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.
The operation was very successful despite the enlarged size and the "resistance" of the Borsalino felts in losing the original imprint
Fleur does a great job. Nice hat.
Thank you Reggie
What a beautiful blue.
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
Well...i'm very curious for your proposal now
And i'm also waiting on Fleur to have a hat of mine reblocked...
I don't think i will be dissapointed.
That is the nicest Adam hat I have seen. <ovation>
