We don't offer much of a recovery program, either.
You know what they say, you are what you is.
Stephen Temkin is ready to trim a Londoner that I've been eagerly awaiting for a while to wear on weekends and off hours in cooler months as a 'town hat'. He sent me several choices for a ribbon; I ultimately chose a 20 ligne dusk one, which is what I expected to from the start, but I found seeing alternatives helpful.
I have two of Stephen's creations, one of them a Londoner in Natural. He makes an amazing hat. The last time I checked the wait was over 12 months. He was a student of Art Fawcett's in his beginnings.
A St. Regis, a Mallory, and a Dobbs.
Also, finally got my hat stretcher restored and it was shipped back to me. Now my workshop is finally complete.
This will be my fifth hat by him... of six or perhaps seven planned. They've run from a big black homburg in his Venetian finish that I've only worn half a dozen times to a grey stroller in his Angora finish that I've worn on every winter or fall trip and weekend since I got it. I find him most interesting for his brim treatments and sense of style that feels distinct, but not merely contemporary. He's also very pleasant to deal with in correspondence while developing a hat.
Wow you are all waiting for some rather nice hats...myself...oh I am still waiting for that hat....the one with a winning lotto ticket behind the sweatband! Haha!
Unlike some of my recent mystery purchases, I know this hat won’t fit me. The sweat looks to need replacing too. I just couldn’t leave it and the seller offered free shipping so I caved.
My next hat is going to be a navy Phoenix it is currently being constructed by Rick.
I am going tone on tone on this one. I am always drawn to hats that are matching ribbon and felt but I have so far wound up ordering ones with at least some contrast.
The nice part is there isn’t a bad choice there. Looking forward to seeing the completed hat!

Waiting on two Akubra Fed IV’s, one in Moonstone and the other in Tawny Fawn.

Been looking to add an Adam hats piece for some time. Got lucky and this late 1960’s Adam Premier Quality fell into my lap. Looking forward to its arrival.
Nice get. Can you do some negotiating for me too?
