In 2004 this thread started with “waiting for an Optimo.” So am I:
This is the third Optimo I’ve bought from this seller so I’m sure it will be fine, I just hope it fits…might be the perfect excuse for a Mexico vacation to meet Ignacio and Max @drmaxtejeda My wife might start encouraging me to buy more hats if there’s a trip to Mexico included.
"Tienda Vector One Fur Felt Pork Pie Hat - Cordova":
As seen on the Tienda Hat website, in a listing that's something of a mess. Some places it says "100% fur felt", others it says "100% wool felt"; no mention of it being made by Stetson, but the photo clearly shows a Stetson pin on the ribbon. I'm expecting a basic wool Pork Pie of a vaguely brown-ish color with no Stetson pin and, I'm hoping, the brim snapped UP all around. No idea when I'll receive it; tracking shows it's been bouncing around the Guangdong province of China for the last four days; maybe the good people of ShaTian are breaking it in for me.
