    The rounded panoply upon Nanners


    Thank you for posting this, I may well wish to patronize this gentleman's services some day. I have a friend who looks rather well in bowlers and receives them gladly as gifts.

    Does anyone know anything more about him, such as whence he learned the craft, how long he has been practicing and the quality of the materials that he uses?

    I've got three that I wear (though they're all back in Maryland right now). It's interesting the difference in weight, thickness and stiffness between the three. I can't remember off the top of my head which one I'm wearing in this picture.

  17. I am striking out on contacting him. I emailed him when I first found the email address. Nothing yet.
    Everytime I called the line was busy. [huh] I guess eventually I might actually contact him but until then---I got nothing. [huh] :D
