Well, here's my wool Jaxon C-Crown fedora I've had for over a year now. I don't really wear it these days, having been wearing fitted sized, fur felt instead...
It's darker than these photos depict. It's actually almost black, charcoal grey I suppose. I wasn't really after that when I bought the hat, this is the color they advertised:
Maybe it's the lighting, but I thought it would be more of a medium grey than dark.
Not a bad-looking hat, actually.
I started out with a wool felt hat. It started out as a fedora, and in under a year, because of wearing it in the elements, had shrunk about three sizes, which rendered it unwearable and made the brim go all wavy.
Some brands offer a good quality in wool felt hats, there are pretty models, if you keep it out rain or water looks fine much time, one reason to pick a wool felt is the price. ¡¡¡
Yes, it is, I have a pair Wilton (Wool felt made in USA) and are a good hats. ¡¡¡¡:eusa_clap:eusa_clapYou are correct my friend. J.B.'s hat is a good example. My wool Bronner is a very well made wool hat. However, I do love my fur felt alot more. I keep wearing my Bronner in the rain and intentionally wetting it to have a reason to do away with it but it it a good wool hat!
You are right MadDawg. Hatco in Garland is the place to go for hats! That's where I got the Brown Stetson Sovereign in my avatar.
