    Common Rudolpho, this a perfect spot to show some closeups of those pins!

  4. Thanks Bowen. My posts in a thread call Hat Accessories or something got merged into this one. I realize they are not hat pins. :rolleyes:

    I wanted something to snazz up my favorite straw hat this summer and I came up with this. It works for me. What do you think? IMG_5005.JPG IMG_4716.jpg

    Works for me. It's far nicer than a pin/badge with the manufacturer's name on it; that kind of branding always makes a hat look cheap to me.

    I think it compliments the straw, nice touch.

    Snazzy. I also eschew visible branding and much prefer your penny pin. Just some silver solder?

    Thanks, I enjoy it. The hat is a "Hot to Trot" by Dobbs. It's genuine Ecuador straw finished in the USA.

    Here's a link with better photos I found online.

    I don't add pins to my hats, but this Stetson came with a pin on it and I left it in place. The feather is long gone, however. It's a JBS branding iron, I think...

    This Stetson Twenty came with a pin, and it has stayed in place.... for now.

    I kind of like those branding iron JBS pins, kind of a western thing, but I'd put one on a period fedora.

    I have an idea to create something different.

    I'm tired of the boring out-of-the-box hat pins most people wear on their hats.

    They're cheap, they're plastic, they're mass produced, many contain corporate logos and *worst of all* they're dull!

    I've been fooling around with some out-of-the-box ideas to adorn, embellish, personalize and beautify my hats using a variety of vintage items including coins, old jewelry, real buttons, cocktail picks and swizzle sticks. The idea here is class and taste as opposed to cheap junk.

    I've been talking to a local hat store about doing a counter display for the store, but I wanted to throw some of my ideas up to all you true hat lovers for your ideas, criticism and feedback.

    Let me know what you think.

    I have a lapel pin that I really like, but I've only worn a suit jacket/Blazer four times in the past four years (2 funerals & 2 weddings), so they don't get used. I was wondering, is there a way to turn a lapel pin into a hat ribbon pin? I can't imagine the pin and backer would be all that comfortable. How would I attach it?

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I like your ideas! I also like the idea of taking something unique or of special personal meaning and making a hat pin out of it.

    I have a couple of Indian-head pennies from years significant to me that I want to use as hatband pins on brown ribbons just as you have done. How did you attach the pennies to the ribbons, please?

    I don't wear pins in my hats, so if there are pins in the hats I buy, I just remove them. This lot was a recent find however and just an interesting little something. The shield is 1,5cm wide and the pin 3cm long in total.
    Tonak pins in various colours:

    I actually was bidding on a couple of these a while back on Ebay. I think they are cool. The pin length is a little long, I trim them down (my Mercedes pins) so they ride nicer in the bow.
