  2. Stetson Swift Kick, the color is acorn (looks like pecan to me).

  4. Haha! It’s not enough for me. The brim is fine, but I wish it had more crown.

  6. 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.

    Wow Jack, can’t wait to see more developments of that beauty! Awesome to see larger sized vintage westerns still being found too.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.
