    If your hat maker of choice wants some specs from this one, lemme know and I'll send measurements. Although, note that I wear a 7 - so if you are a wildly different size, the proportions may need to differ.

    Best,

    AnA, love that 20! Such great lines on it.

    Jeff, both of those are great looking hats. I love the architecture of that hallway, too.

    Gene, you're looking sharp there. You're not older--you're just closer to vintage. :)

    jeff, the first hat is amazingly beautiful, i like the second one as well. I really like the way the brim is on the first hat, and the color is stunning.

    +1 for the hat and the welcome back. And thanks for the connection to The Natural. Fine book and a great memory of the filming done here in Buffalo.

    Thanks Jacob, and all. I tell ya, I have messed with this brim so much in terms of swoop, angle of the "roll" dipping the front and/or back, raising the sides, etc... and I have never been able to get that pencil roll to look even-- it's always kinda rumpled, and it has no flange. I'm thinking about either sending it to a western hatter to get a real pencil curl and a flange, or taking the curl out altogether and doing some kind of welt. I wonder if there's a perfect matching ribbon binding out there somewhere for that Black Cherry beaver felt.

    Okay, for instance here's a Wormser lord's hat. Granted, the crown is lower, and has a bit more taper, but I think that's what an unbound pencil curl should look like, and was originally what I had in mind for the black cherry hat.

    Lotsahats-- thanks! The house was built in 1941 and we've lived in it for 3 years. If you came inside you'd think we've been here for thirty...

    Pilot Field, right? My godfather was the usher in the closing scenes when Iris asked him to bring a note to Roy.

    Very nice hats today!

    Today I just went with a modern cap & 1931 Overcoat. I have. Not the greatest of photos (my Girlfriend's cameraphone is horrible)

    I'm in Barichada which is a 6 hour drive outside of Bogota, Colombia and pretty much in the middle of nowhere. It's very hot so I ditched my felt fedora and bought this very cheap panama from a tiny shop here which I proceeded to reshape. Really surprised how it took to reshaping.

    THAT, right there, is "ROCKIN' A HAT"!

    Careful, lil' bro'. They weren't into warning labels much back in the day, as they say, but if they had been they'd cautioned you not to tread down the path I've wandered. It's great when the girls swoon. Not so much when you catch hell from the one at home.

    3X is not enough to get that kind of weather. My first 4X Stetson took days to dry and it bleed ink in the process.
