Another bargain bin rescue from Goodwill, I'm afraid -- a mass-produced cheapie trilby. Made to look like linen but it's actually cotton. Black, high crown, stingy brim. Thinking of offering it to my daughter, another hat person. Like its look, though. And loved the price.
Received a hat Friday from the Village Hat Company but had to send it back, too large even though I am a 7 3/8 (long oval). Ordered a medium for its replacement. Looks like James Spader could wear it on the Blacklist. Chocolate brown to match a suede jacket I own. Hope to get it back soon.
I couldn't pass up the opportunity to show these initials
gear-guy, Richard (the Christys cap is still a winner), Mystic, Thanks guys. I really appreciate the feedback on my Black Resistol conversion.
Here's another conversion I'm working on. I took this 3X Open Road apart and reblocked it with my handy paint can and bubble wrap. I'll be putting a new sweat and a contrasting mid-ribbon on it. I also pounced it to where it's really nice and soft. This is going to be one of my favorites when it's finished...Here it is with a dry crease, center dent...I'm still not sure what kind of crease I'll go with yet.
Why remember how it was. You cannot enjoy it again with that wide brim since you can't put it back.
This Dobbs West looks like a Resistol Stagecoach rebranded. Was Dobbs bought by Resistol (or hat co)? Must google on this.
Is that a Winchester? Akubra have nice felts.
Thanks. With it had more brim.
Yes it does. Thank you again for it since this hat had no hatband.
Pendleton straw today but could have gone felt as the temp. was starting to drop.

I know several people who might claim ownership of that hat [huh]
Yes Model 64. Photo over in the "show us your guns" thread
This last weekend:
I wish I could have one... Didn't know a thread like that existed on TFL!
Nice hats Case, love the brim on that straw!
Great stuff, Garrett. A real stare at the sun kind of hat.
We took another round trip to central Ohio to bring our freshman back home. She returned a sophomore. :eeek:
Wow man. Trippy. :eusa_clap
Alan, she looks a tiny bit smarter already. Must be a good school. Pardon the sophomoric humor.
BEAUTIFUL picture, Alan!!! :eusa_clap:eusa_clap
Congrats to the new Sophomore!! :eusa_clap
Garrett - perfect hat for taking a trip
Terry - impressive re-block with a paintcan.
Gear-guy - nice straw and the spring woods make a great background.
Sam - I think Garrets hat needs that Pug that Carmack always makes me envious.
Alan - great photo, your pride shines out.
Alan - you have much to be proud of.
This Thursday Nancy and I head to Southeast Ohio for Hannah's induction into Phi Beta Kappa. It's an honor society for the arts and sciences which is very difficult for seniors to be admitted into. Hannah was asked to join as a junior (an uncommon occurrence as a junior). We are extremely proud of the kid. Even more important, she's a good person. And it's always nice to see the next generation growing up to be a good person - and perhaps someone who will change the world for the better.

Sweet Black Cherry Dave!
