    Geez, you have a large skull, Brent. The shape is pretty even, though.
    Mine has bumps, and a crooked long axis.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Lost control and placed an order for one of Art's "off the shelf" chocolate hats. Figured I better have at least one VS before its too late. I do have a resistol stagecoach there for a rennovation to be "fedoraized" but my hat acquisition syndrome kicked in.

    Nice. I’ve been hoping to see one of those show up here. I wanted one of the dove off-the-rack hats but made to the specifications of the chocolate. I’ll look forward to seeing your hat when it arrives.

    I almost bought an OTR Chocolate the other day from eBay. After exchanging a few messages with the seller he advised I save up for a custom. I know time is running out, as I think Art is supposed to stop taking orders some time next month.

    We are generally enablers, but if it's in your means, DO IT!

    The means are available but I might have a hard time convincing the wife. The plan, therefore, is to try to sell some other stuff to raise funds. I need to clean out the wardrobe anyway. Looking through old pics I have some stuff from when I was still in high school. :confused:

    If I can't sell some of the higher end stuff it'll likely just get donated. I've already donated several bags to Salvation Army, so maybe good karma will come my way.

    I'm sorry Gentlemen but the time has arrived that I must stop taking orders. My official cutoff date will be 8/31/2019. I'm not at all sure i can finish all of your orders before the New Year but will continue to work on them until finished, perhaps in January. I want to thank everyone for what has been an overwhelming response to my retirement plans and pledge to not retire until every order has been completed.

    Thanks Art! Hopefully we will get to see posts of the hats you create the rest of this year. I have really enjoyed scrolling through the pictures and posts of your wonderful hats.

    You have certainly earned your retirement! Thank you for the great hats and all your patience and kindness.

    Will your shop remain open for refurbishment work after September 1st?

    Yes Sir, I'll be open until late December Brent although I am limiting repairs . Just too many to do. Thank you Mustang, it's been my pleasure.
    I also need to announce that I no longer have any "Glacier" available. All have been spoken for.

    Darn, too bad... I was just about to pull the trigger. And "Glacier" was your one-time replacement for "Dove," and you are all out of "Dove," correct?

    Art, thanks for chatting with me these last couple of years. Wish I would have had the chance to visit your shop before you leave. You've done lots of fixes for me and I look forward to the new hats still in your que. You're a true craftsman and artist. Ken, in Austin.
