    Just ordered off the rack chocolate. I don't own a suit but I will now have 4 of Art's hats. Good luck in retirement.

    Discovered Art through stumbling upon the Fedora Lounge Hat Forum - gave him a call and asked him to create a Savannah for me. While waiting my turn, I thought I'd get an Off the Rack Chocolate, but it was out in my size. Art kindly found a Dark Moss in 7 1/8, and sent me the photo below. The Dark Moss fits great and fills the 'Green' slot previously vacant! Really glad I got to talk with Art before his retirement - what an extraordinary and kind gentleman! Cheers, Art, and all the best!

    Sorry DH, with everything going on this year we developed the hat but never put it on the website. It has been only in the store as I simply haven't had the time for the extra work it takes. I was lucky to have the correct size for Lobeydosser

    Dang, I was hoping this was only a nightmare. I'm proud to own multiple creations made by your hands Art. Top notch work all. They are my most loved and worn hats and I thank you for all your work!

    Thank you for the kind words Roger. I haven't had the down time yet to miss it, but I'm sure I will.

    Hey Art
    I was saddened a bit with the deadline passed for another bespoke fine artistic creation from you. However I had not thought of an off the rack. I suppose I could do another Panama, or maybe a light weight felt in a color that would work on my tropical island home. As you know, I like following your suggestions. What do you have on the shelf that would work for me?

    Finally! My first of three Art Fawcett commissions has arrived — this one is a Mitchum’s Way hat. Fits like a glove. Love it!
    Thank you, Art!

    Picked up this one off a fellow lounger....tweaked the crown (kind of a sloppy diamond bash) to my liking and I now have one of my daily grab and go's. I can see why so many are a fan of his work. 20191219_230955_resized.jpg 20191219_231004_resized.jpg 20191219_231012_resized.jpg 20191219_231024_resized.jpg 20191219_231039_resized.jpg 20191219_231046_resized.jpg 20191219_231103_resized.jpg 20191219_231130_resized.jpg

    I can recommend driving to Oregon and deliver a nice bottle of Crown Royal. What did you have in mind?

    As I sat in church today, my new VS mid ribbon on the pew next to me, I realized the new lid looks alot like I remember my grandfather's dress hat he wore to their 50th anniversary party when i was a young lad. Very impressed by Art's work, and how I ended up, quite unknowingly, on a path that lead me to finally own the hat I always really wanted more than any other.

    Thank you again, Art, for such a grand fedora.
