    First light for a new iPhone. It appears to capture the wrinkles and blemishes even better than the old one. :eeek:

    I hope there is an app for that.

    Seeing the morning light after gymnastics practice. Snow shoveling the entrances and then some much needed coffee.

    Eric, the snow comes return, also in Germany! Snow shoveling is a good training! Sharp VS!

    That homburg is awesome Alan. I might go with that color combo (Sahara with burgundy ribbon?) on a custom some time.


    I stopped home for lunch today and switched to a Resistol San Antonio for the afternoon.

    I had to step out for trip to our hardware store for nuts and bolts for a new womens's gymnastics uneven-bar set. Woo-hoo -- new asset!

    Wearing the just arrived Hempstead. A Fedora Lounge member, Ofcoursemyhorse, was kind enough to offer it for sale to me. This is a hat that I really will get some wear out of. The felt is deliciousely light. Great brim stiching. Six rows of stiching with a raw brim - very cool features. It is a cream brown (like a chocolate milk shack) sporting a COOL three ribbon dressing. When time permits I will post more about the hat.

    Note: Bright light oversaturates the brown color. The outside pic, while in brite light, is closer to the real color.

    If you want a snap-brim there are plenty, you are flattening the side curl out and bending the transition points--just looks distorted and pinches the front edge curl too. Less than a Homburg and less than a Fedora.

    The beauties keep coming, ALL!

    Alan, I don't know what else to say other than that has got to be one of the prettiest hats I have ever seen.

    AWESOME hats today!!! Just terrific!!!


    Thanks, suited-c!!

    The Adam is enjoying the attention, too! :)

    I dig the hat today, Jeff. My FPH is a little lower in the front, too. It gives the front crown profile a little fuller look.

    Kind words, Monte. Thank you for the compliment! :cool:

    Nice one, Tango! Great hat.

    Thanks, scooter. I won't make any more changes to it. I really like your Worth & Worth!! :yo:

    Alan, I feel the same way about my hats. However, I've been searching for a chocolate brown fedora lately, and nothing has turned up that made me jump. The homburg was offered up for a great price and I decided to give it a try. I'm not sure the homburg "look" fits me well at this time, so I may get another down the road and keep it untouched. Until then, I will admire your sweet Stetson 7XCB!! :thumb:

    You are a gentleman of many compliments, Manfred. I am humbled by your kindness. Thank you so much!! And that's a handsome velour you're wearing. I'm sure it didn't look as good in the '50s as you make it look today!! :yo:

    ...still admiring...

    Robert, you keep bringing out (and buying up :boink: ) the finest hats!!

    Awesome hat, case! The Resistol finishes are done really well.

    Eric, the Hempstead is a beautiful hat. :faint: With those features, it can be shown off at least once a day! I'm in awe of the ribbon. Just beautiful.

    Thank you for the comments. I've handled a number of 7X CBs - this is the earliest and the most unusual. It has also been around the block, likely undergoing some renovation prior to its recent visit to Optimo for R&R. Clay-like, very smooth but also quite soft with a finish that recalls ultra-suede. I thought it might pair well with this vintage Lanvin ultra suede sport coat. A better shirt would help.

    No, I get it. I do appreciate hats as they're made, and I do understand that I am making the hat do something it wasn't intended to do. :pout:

    A fellow lounger helped me find this hat, so I hope I didn't offend his efforts by changing it. Since I appreciate authenticity I will consider the nature of a homburg if I ever get another down the road. You and Alan have superb hat collections ranging in many styles, and I value your comments. Cheers. :)

    I'm wearing my free bay "sniper" hat that I sniped for $20.00 S&H included .

    This will become my "dirty chores" hat because at that price I can't go wrong .

    All the Best ,Fashion Frank
