    Many thanks my friend. Yes, the sweatband is as hard as rock. A shame but at least the felt is in decent shape ;)

  9. Thank you guys! Like BB's pic above, the 7XCB is a fine hat regardless of its original price point, case or no case, era, etc. And when you find one it is usually in pretty good shape because they weren't everyday hats. When I got this one the hat & case had a bit of a basement musty smell but nothing some fresh Red Cedar chips couldn't handle.

    Thank you, Jesse. Just noticed the spelling of your first name. The boots were made by Jesse Bogle. His AZ shop was Boots by Jesse.

    Thank you, B. Two of my favorites as well.

  13. Putting away summer hats and pulling out more felt when I came across one of my favorite hats. It’s a vintage Walden (no “Worth”) that Rick @humanshoes made for me. There’s a great deal to like about the hat, but for me it’s the friendship and kindness of Rick that makes it a favorite. Rick salvaged the original center of the liner and sewed in into the new liner and he reproduced the leather sweatband markings right down to the original font. The hat is very nice, but it’s people that matter and I’m blown away by Rick’s kindness. It’s incredible to count such friends among folks I’ve never met in person. Thank you again, Rick.

    That big old hat was a pure joy to handle and work on Brent and the pleasure was all mine. So much beautiful real estate and you wear that one like you own it my friend.
    As much as I enjoy making and working on hats, nothing compares to the human relationships formed in the process. It is amazing that we've known each other so many years and never exchanged a handshake, but I don't think that takes away from our friendship one little bit and I'll always be grateful for it.

    Hey Joe. I wanted to mention that I've been watching your evolution as a procurer of vintage hats and they just keep getting better and better.
