Found a two-for-one deal that I couldn’t pass up:

Found a two-for-one deal that I couldn’t pass up:

Wow -- I think you did a whole lot better than I did Brent! Congrats!

I'm waiting for a three-for-one and a two-for-one.

I went deeper than I should have for one of the three, but at that point it was essentially free shipping for the third one.

Number 1 (in sequence ... it's a XXXX)

This one at least helps to date a Stetson 4X with embroidered Last Drop.

Number 2 (hold on, this reference may come into play shortly).

Number 3. I think people were bidding on this one like it was Stetson's Centennial and not Wyoming's.

Which brings us to the 2-fer.

I probably paid too much for this, but it appears old, so I hope that liner truly goes with it. Wish the sweatband was still the original one though. We'll see what's behind it soon.

It comes with the world's dirtiest Portis.

I sure hope it cleans up nicely, but it was still worth it just to reference @alanfgag 's Dad joke.

Some potential diamonds in the rough, Bob. I was watching some of them too, but the shipping fees have killed me on the last couple of auctions.

Even used, the two Optimos were not cheap, but they are 7 5/8…the curled brim western had to come home with me.

Bob, you may be aware but Fahey-Brockman was a department store that originated in Seattle, I believe. All or most of their items were sold under their own name or particular branding but they did no mfg. I owned one of their fedoras and they show up from time to time under the Fabroc-Zenith name. Yours looks to be an early one.

Thanks Greg! I think I ran across yours when digging through some threads.

Yahoody triangulating the exact location of his hat with USPS ;)

PS…. I know the feeling. Had some similar issues with hat shipments. And more recently a package shipped to me fRom the new company I’m working for. After more than a month the home office received back just a small piece of cardboard from the box they shipped me. When they took it to the post office to see about at least refunding the over $50 they paid to ship it…. NOPE.. “we don’t do that” :oops::rolleyes:o_O

Summer is rapidly approaching the southwest corner of the continental U.S., and I realized I don't have many summer hats. I found this the other day while I was milling about in the 'Bay:

A model dubbed "Mannes" by Bailey Hats; used, but half the price of a new one. The image on the left is from Bailey's website, on the right is one of the photos in the eBay listing. The brim will need a little work, and I'm hoping the hat will, in person, have more of the "pizzazz" of the image on the right. No real reason other than because I find the overall shape with the stingy brim appealing.
