Garrett, Great hat! Super refurb work by Bob. The company creast is somewhat similar to JHS.
Steve, we based the refurb on your Mayser Ulm Velour
Garrett, Yes I can see that now.

WOW....in so many different ways!!
I could relapse with this one.
Like that old girlfriend that just.....
Like that car that just.....
Like that dream that just won’t come back.
Wow and wow again, Garrett. Stellar hats!
Glorious posts of late Garret. The pictured hat has a great stitched brim edge treatment. The stitches appear to be tightly spaced and well executed. What am I missing, I am not certain of the manufacturer of the above hat? What manufacturer is it?
Thanks, Eric -
It seems the only way I can see these wonderful hats worn is when you send them to me. ;^)
Admittedly this one is a bit of a mystery. Both Bill and Josh owned this hat before it found its way to me and I'm not sure they were able to determine the manufacturer. I'm guessing it was a Hatco product made specifically for this shop. The heathered felt is top notch and can hold its own against similar models from the big brand names of the era. The Stetson Railbird was similar to the specs though I believe the railbird was a later model from Stetson.
Thanks. As you mention the railbird I see similarity in the felt and brim edge-not in the ribbon treatment. I hav a pic saved of Anthony's Railbird and your oatmeal hued Railbird. They have the felted ribbon. The label is very generic and does not push me in any manufacturer direction. Whatever the details, it is truly a special fedora. Thanks again.
Oh boy! These have been such stellar hats Garrett! Has this one got a bon-ton-ivy sweat treatment? So cool! I have been wanting a boater with the Bon-ton-Ivy, but this hat takes the cake!
This one has a reeded sweatband. Hard to believe it cost only $1.95 when new.
Wow ... Shantung has come a long way (down) since then. Stellar hat!
Yes, that hat is wonderful. Spectacular heather felt. I found it in Milwaukee with several other heathers and long hairs. There wasn't any evidence pointing to who manufactured that hat.
Bill, was this one among those purchased on that trip?
