Bluebonnet is a new color to me. Might be too blue even for me.

These turned out great! Could you show a pic of your hat block and whatever tools you used to reshape this hat? I have a similar project I’m working on and I am just starting to learn and collect tools. Thanks!

Thanks! Give me some time to take pics & do a write up later. I'll be doing some storm cleanup outside for a while today.

This was a total speculation buy. The sweatband doesn’t have any of the expected quality designations. The hat looks to have had the original sweatband replaced and it’s in need of yet another replacement. The seller’s photos showed the felt was thin and dense. Once it arrive I was sure it’s a pure beaver felt. It feels even nicer than my Resistol One-Hundreds or the 135 I once owned. The open crown is 6” and the raw edge brim is 2 3/4”.

This hat’s destiny is undecided. I’m not sure there is enough felt to allow it to be sized up for me. It’s just the perfect dress-western felt…?

Gorgeous hat and yes you can tell the fine felt quality in the picture!
Reminds me of a Churchill 100.

It is a medium grey hat with an olive ribbon. Much like my last custom from Gannon. Specs for the Sky Fleet at 5" open crown 4 1/4" creased, 2 5/8" brim. Note the playboy like sewn trim lines inside the brim binding. Wind trolley and ribbons are olive. Crown ribbon is about 7/8" and binding is 3/8" or less. The box came with it and has no labels. There may be a little mothing around the base of the crown ribbon. All for four bucks.

This 5X Beaver arrived a couple weeks ago. It has a 6 3/4” open crown and the raw edge brim is approximately 5 3/4 inches. Six cord (6-ply) hat band/ribbon. It arrived creased but I took it back to open crown as I decide what to do with it. It’s currently listed on eBay but I’m on the fence on keeping it.
