"Tienda Vector One Fur Felt Pork Pie Hat - Cordova":

YvSdsrZ.jpg


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.
Good luck with that one. Hope it turns out better than your fears.

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. ;)
Congrats—I saw that and wondered if you would be interested.

Sticking with the obscure and seldom seen, this one is a Triumph by Champ. Seller says it was in a box with a model name of "Penthouse" and labeled "Roman Green" - however seller also says he sees the color as a chocolate brown, so... box doesn't match, or another color-shifter. I already have one Champ with an undefinable color. This one doesn't say "feel the felt" but (continued below)

"felted with Genuine Beaver." Does that mean they kept a beaver in the room while they made the hat out of gerbil fur?
Super Sonic Edge? I'll be busting the sound barrier everywhere I go!
