    gdc, nice one, you wear it well!

    Alan, a real pity with the brim and sweatband but the crown looks very nice. I think also that a dualist project is the best
    for that Hat. Nice black brim on that is a real eye catcher

    The composition is Misto-like, but much lighter in weight. Here is the inside.

    Thanks. Although Walter Brennan took it to the extreme, I like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYrr1oD8w-wNowhere near as beautiful as the one Cooper is wearing but is kind of works. I've creased this hat a million ways and like this one best.

    Alan, that's a shame. I agree you look better with more brim but I've never seen a pic of you under a hat that I didn't like.

    What a damn shame someone (being kind) hacked the brim. I have a mint dark green JHS Seal Velour that suffered the same fate.

    Just to throw a little salt on the open wound, here is what it looked like before I smoothed the brim edge. I think it might have been cut with a butter knife.

    Oh nuts. Carrara is such a beautiful color. A have a Misto in carrara; mine's a light-medium gray with reddish undertones and a few greenish specks.

    Perry: looking sharp! Dapper combination.

    Alan: shame about the Borso, the felt is really quite magnificent otherwise.

    Love the Sahara VS Eric. I was thinking of wearing mine this morning, but went with this Borsalino instead.

    I'm enjoying the cooler mornings.

    Thank you, SpeedRcrX. Thank you...

    btw, is this the VS you had Art modify? It just looks perfect on you.

    lots of wonderful hats lately.

    Dinerman, you have inspired me as well and I spent half the weekend screwing around with the casual yet pensive B&W shots with various lids. I may or may not post them because it was totally your photo that made me do it!
