I'll be waiting not today but in a week for this one. Yes, another Stagecoach.

These trousers, and a new shirt that Tina is making for me, are waiting a new hat by Esther. Today I got my first viewing of said hat, having ordered it with a narrow hat band, I'm now changing my mind and going for the broader band. This waiting is worse than being a child at Christmas.

I'm keenly awaiting the delivery of a new hat from Stephen Temkin at Leon Drexler. It's a modified Stroller, having his welterweight and angora finishes along with a wider brim. I intend it as a warmer weather travel hat; a counterpart to the Stroller that he made for me last fall. I'd be blessed if it came before Friday so that I can give it a 'maiden voyage' on a short trip that I'm leaving for on Friday, but if not, I should still have a lifetime of service to enjoy from it.

I've heard from Mike Miller at NW Hats that my "Slats Gill" Playboy clone is close to going on the block! I hope to have it for a family vacation to Victoria BC at the end of the month. The weather there might be conducive to a light weight unlined creation like this.

I'm still pondering what he has done with the crown, diamond with a simple "crunch" with the front pinch?

Thanks to a "heads up" from Rick Blaine regarding a sale I'm awaiting a Christy's Adventurer/Poet.Roughly $80 delivered.
Thats so good. I checkd them out also. Is that the color? I wanted to get that hat in "Nut" color but couldn't ascertain from their website if the sale price was for all colors and sizes or just limited too certain colors and sizes. I also couldn't find out what shipping would be. Does the purchase price absolutely include shipping cuz that's at least a $20+ charge. I will absolutely buy that hat if they have it in my size and color and shipping is included. What a great bargain.

I have been struggling to find a vintage boater in my size and to scratch the proverbial itch I figured I'd snap this one up because of the price. The great @Bob Roberts helped to confirm/vouche for the overall quality of the straw products from Scala for me so I jumped at it. If anyone else is interested the website is called jet.com and I paid $32 shipped. They do not have numbered sizes and only their size XL is left (7 1/2-7 5/8).

Just ordered a Stetson "Temple".....in light (or dove) grey. Have been unable to find a vintage in this useful color, and not many makers have it........so...........

The Temple is really not such a bad hat............of course I will ditch the feathers ASAP!!

I really like my two Temple hats. I have been eyeballing this color very very hard! I might just have to pull the trigger on one myself. I will have to see if Amazon has anything crazy discount wise on them for "Prime" day. Totally agree with you on the feathers :) Congrats on the new hat sir.

Thx. Flattered. It better be nice. I got a very decent and inexpensive Scala Panama straw so I hope you do as well.
