  3. Here is a sort of Stratoliner/OR clone.....though much more a Strat.....with the crown blocking and ribbon treatment. It is NOS and simply flawless.....
    Only differance is it only has a 2 1/8 inch brim.:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
    In real life it is very much a medium grey/ blue.
    Out side the simply awsome heavy gold liner more often associated with the 50's, the sweat and $13.95 price scream mid-sixties.......5 1/2 inch open crown, this one is NOT a factory crease version.....

    I have enjoyed reading your input in an effort to help with his stain. Good stuff. I'm learning here. Tell me what you think of this idea: blending some chalk powdered colors and applying with a q-tip? A temporary fix maybe? I am just dreaming here. You da man. Talcum powder to a white hat?

  8. They would have the same effect of the colored "finishing/filler" powders have that the hat companies use......somewhat to very temporary, depending on how they are worked into the felt. Stetson still uses a LOT of this powder to even out the color on their light grey hats......gets all over any black suits you wear with it and dare to touch with the hat:eek:.....learned that the hard way with my tux:eek::eek:......does have the added benifit of giving a softer hand to the felt though:rolleyes:.

    Bob and I were talking about a couple of hats and he commented about a greenish cast. I lost track of which hat he was referring to. When I opened the box, I was both surprised and pleased! There are a couple of other Peacocks on the Lounge and one or both were Stetsons made in Germany. Yes, I am pleased with the hat and the unique color. Thanks again @BobHufford
