    On stiff thick felted brims, water, not steam, is your best friend. Get the brim just wet enough to where you can easily shape it. When you get the shape you want, set your hat aside and let it dry.

    They do take some work, water and steam. I was looking through my westerns and I can’t remember one that I didn’t eventually iron the brim flat and start from scratch with the exception of a 4x6 OC one I bought that came with a flat brim. Once flat, with the exceptions of the ones with a curl, all you need are your thumbs, thigh and chest. No shovel front brims, please.

  5. Very cool, Steve. That’s a lot of hat to work with and I really like the crease. I’m not at all surprised that you can pull off this style.

    Bob H. graciously passed this, what I believe to be a 30s Arminto, along to me. This is Arminto #2 (other one is black) in as many weeks, crazy huh? Sun was setting over the err .. parking lot .. so I had to crank brights. Hats gonna get a bath hopefully tomorrow.

  11. A favorite Brent!

    You wear it well Mike! Can't wait to see how it cleans up.

    Love the wide ribbon and thin binding on this one Greg. Great looking hat!

    Bob did you solid with that one. That's a great looking hat and it looks right at home on your head.

    Thanks, Bob. It’s one of the few WAR’s I have and the only western. The ribbon’s not original but I’m not sure I would change it back if I could. It’s a favorite.
