    I posted this in the "Black Hat Brigade" but it's probably more suitable here since it's another conversion project I'm tinkering with. I'm really not that much into it because I don't care for black hats.

    It's another black western I came across that had some brim issues. I stripped it down and reblocked it and gave it a deep tear drop crease. I'm still deciding on a ribbon choice and I'm leaning toward one that Esther sent me. Just gotta put it all back together...

    Nope. Not a fan of black hats...

    Maybe it'll look better after I put it back together

    Looks pretty good right now! Seems like a dark gray ribbon would complement that shade of black quite well.

    Thanks for comments all.
    Here's a western hat I converted for a fellow lounger . Hesitatingly I cut down the 3 1/2 brim per their request to 2 5/8. And although the crown is a healthy 6" I initially thought it wasn't going to look good but after putting the ribbons on the brim and crown it turned out better than I thought.
