Mmmm... Whiskey. :eusa_clap
Thanks for the welcome.
I wanna drink that hat.
Ordinary Guy...It's funny when you throw on a hat like that and a nice leather. The sharp dressed man returns! Beautiful lid. Nice fit. Looks natural to me.
I wore the Stratton and a tweed jacket (again) to visit my sister the nurse for lunch.
Casechopper that's a really nice hat especially looking at this last shot ,the felt on that hat looks very luxurious and I was also curious as to whether the hat is soft or stiff overall ?
Cheers and All the Best ,Fashion Frank
The hat is soft to the touch but is not in any way floppy. Or, in other words, it's soft & silky on the outside but does have a reasonably stiff core so it's not as flexible as a dress hat would be. It is made from Winchester's western weight beaver felt. I really like this weight of felt for a daily, hard wearing hat that can be abused without worrying too much.
Carmack (the custom maker) doesn't appear to have pounced the hat too finely but the shaggier look doesn't bother me. One thing he did that I really like is he rounded the brim edge. I didn't ask for this but it really gives a raw edge a more finished look then a straight 90 degree angle cut does.
I actually think the "shaggy" look compliments the hat's overall style. Cool ribbon too!
Plus plus plus! The color, finish, dimensions, and ribbon are perfect for both the hat and its unshaven wearer. I think thAt why it always calls to me. The proportions seem similar to my Nutria. Sam, is that beaver or blend?
I might add that if this had been the first hat I ever purchased I might not have begun the collection. Oh well, too late for that now!
A proper hommie for me today, the presumably 30s Belamey. It has a very high and untapered crown, similar to the 52 block. I seem to change the crease a lot, though the felt must be mostly hare.
Dobbs Homburg Lords hat today getting ready to do some jammin! Enjoying the ostrich sweatband by Black Sheep. Just can't take it off!
I just found this old picture. 18 years ago. I'm wearing one of many old fishing hats.
From today. Wore the Beaver Brand Cowboy Hat. I bashed/blocked it myself with the aid of a tea pot. Good hat. I bet I've had it for 15 years.
Last weekend in swim meet ¡¡¡

Knox Twenty Homburg
Not normally given to follow convention, I nonetheless wore a Homburg last evening out of deference to my esteemed friends here paying homage to International Homburg Week.
Arriving for supper with Ryan and Lydia. Knox Twenty Homburg.
Leaving for home after a satisfying meal.
I love seeing Tony's lids David. Looks awesome. I wish I would have started in the world of customs with Tony but now I have seen the light
Well done, AL... an unpinched homburg is a thing of beauty.
Tom, your new CD looks great - I like the long side crease you've added.
David, one can't have too many bows for Valentines Day. I am hunting for a red fedora but can't find one... there must be one in the hat room somewhere???
