Stetson Swift Kick, the color is acorn (looks like pecan to me).
Nice hat, but way too much hat for me personally.
Haha! It’s not enough for me. The brim is fine, but I wish it had more crown.
New to me Butch Dorer Bar 50 pure beaver:
1920's - 1930's Stetson just as it arrived.
I haven't measured it up yet but I believe it to be a Tommy Grimes No.1 Quality. Tags are correct with 3 block inventory tag verifying 7" crown. Nice wide brim binding & ribbon. Original sweat is gone.
Horsehair hatband is period correct & can be found in the 1929 catalog. The outside may be dusty or faded. The colors in the inside are still vivid & can easily be turned inside-out if a gentle cleaning fails to revive them.
I plan to take it slow & see how it responds to brushing & steaming before popping out the 90 yr old crown. If it is a Tommy Grimes I would like to crease it back as pictured. More to come in the Pre-1940's thread when finished.
What a great hat!! You done good!
Such a great hat @Hurricane Jack ! The horsehair band is a beauty!
Wow Jack, can’t wait to see more developments of that beauty! Awesome to see larger sized vintage westerns still being found too.
Good luck with the rehab. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
Robie, Bob, Ross, Mark & Dale, thank all of you. And thanks again to the Lounger who tipped me off! I've been vacuuming, brushing & sponging getting out a lot of dust, & it's now back to open crown. Thinking about using some Woolite Delicate for cleaning the horsehair.
Sweet hats. I need to post my recent straw acquisition from Brent.
I also want to get my feet wet with a Gus style hat. Felt in SB. Fairly nice one so that if I like it I'll keep it, but not too pricey because its my trial hat. Any suggestions? Not alot on Ebay right now.
I was looking for something similar and went with a Riley by Northwest:
No worries Jack, it looks like it wound up in a good home and is being given the attention it deserves. Definitely look forward to seeing more.
Thoroughbred 10X Hand Finish:
That's a good looking hat, Brent. The subtle forward rake of the crown really gives it a great profile.
That’s a nice tall one. Sharp hat, Brent!
You're picking up a bunch of nice one's Brent. Looking good.
