    Post-WWII Borsalino sold in the Motor City. More western than dress western.

    Resistol Stagecoach that I reshaped and added a kettle curl. The original sweatband was in great shape so I didn't block the crown, just reshaped it. I used vintage cotton/rayon ribbon and went with a simple bow since it was my first real attempt at making a bow.

    A sports talk radio show I often listen to has an occasional segment where they get away from sports and one I was listening to a week or so ago is called “Shower Thoughts”. One of the thoughts on this day was ‘No one looks average in a cowboy hat. You can either pull it off or not’. Their thought, not mine. I’ve been wearing cowboy hats since I was about 18 and I don’t think I’ve ever had the thought but as i made my 65TH lap around the sun today, it was one of many thoughts that crossed my mind, including what hat to wear. Decided on a favorite No. 1 that I knew to be near my own vintage as it has a 1958 price tag of $13.98 behind the sweat. It’s two years younger but close enough for SSI.

  11. Hey @Ross Young,
    What is the reflection in the glass of the pic frame I just noticed? Looks like a blindfolded dead guy.

    Not entirely sure, Jack, good eye though! It was a very quick trip, the museum was about a 3 hour detour on a 32 hour road trip. I was lucky to get the 15 minute walk through and hand full of pics, wish I had more time.

    From a museum? Could be a bust they were cleaning or moving and had set it down on a chair or something? Interesting anyway. Good eye HJ.

  15. Probably just stuff in the background behind Ross, compressed in the reflection. I think they call that pareidolia, when your brain makes you see things out of nothing.

    Thanks, Ross. Good eye but you would know. If I’d stop buying RRL shirts I’d have more hat money.

    Thank you, Jared.

    Thanks, HJ.

    Thanks, B. Damn skippy.

    Appreciate it, Joe.

    Very kind, Steve. Thank you.
