This old Resistol Lobo is in rough shape so I won’t feel bad about stripping it and using it as a donor felt for a new hat.

The seller described it thus: “In fair condition. Needs shaping. No moth damage. No stains.” If this is “fair condition”…. :rolleyes:
I think the best way to save that hat is to harvest it, Brent. So good call.

I see nothing wrong with re-working that hat and making it your own. At the very least you'd be giving it new life!

New hats are like Christmas come early. I have one coming. 100% beaver. Left Silverlake Or on Friday. Ended up in Seattle over the weekend and is now in Denver. I'm in Boise. I don't have high hopes of seeing it any time soon.

I usually have great luck and a lot of faith in the post office. Not sure what is happenign here.

Kinda funny really. Silver lake Or is just under 300 miles from my place. Hat has already traveled, 405 + 1331 and it will take at least another 850 to get it here. 2586 miles so far and counting. I should have just driven over and picked it up!

I trust the USPS, just not the guys they have working there ;)
