    I was in a local vintage clothing store earlier today and noticed a mint condition Stetson Whippet, size 7 1/4 for sale. It's grey with a black hat ribbon, and grey brim binding.

    If any one is interested, PM me, and I'll be happy to pass along info, or even go get it and send it to you if you can reimburse me.

    Rob - I think he's been getting a heckuva lot of PMs that aren't represented in this thread...and I know I haven't heard back, so perhaps it's already gone.

    SOLD!

    The Whippet is sold for a measly $110 (including shipping) to a big fish in Florida.

    The shop even threw in a vintage stetson hatbox for FREE! It's an oval box with a cotton ribbon that ties across the top to prevent it from falling open. I've never seen one like it...

    Many Thanks!

    Thanks to JD for such a generous gesture. The Lounge is a great place! Can't wait to wear that Whippet with my dark suits/jackets. Regards, F_M

    Thanks!

    I tend to haunt a few local vintage clothing stores around town in the hopes of finding a hat for myself. Most often there's nothing in my size (7 1/2 LO) and what I do find is usually pretty beat up. But when I find something that's really nice, I like to make sure it ends up in a good home.

    Next time I find a treasure, I'll post here again!

    Nice haul! I'm completely jealous as that is my size as well.

    it was a lucky Day

    I had to work that day, and was home late for lunch. Just happened to log on the PC just a few minutes after it was posted. Pure luck. I'm usually just a few minutes too late! Have missed quite a few! more pictures posted in the Whippet thread. Regards, Marlin
