    I just looked at the past couple of days of posts. Wow. What a bunch of fine looking hats. ChiTown, that is one nice VS. Art's work is amazing.

    Wearing the Borsalino Alessandria as our heat wave subsides.

    Perry, JAVIER, Harv, Jlee, Thanks guys. I appreciate your comments on my Imperial Stetson.

    Jlee, I think you're right. There's just not too many of these hats that come around too often. I've seen the Stetson Tijuana type hats in Royal Deluxes and in 3xs, (even those are getting hard to come by), but I haven't seen a Tijuana type quite like the one I have, and especially for it to be an Imperial in the suede finish.

    Panadora, Your Habock is a real nice one. Looks like you might have something there.

    bond, Your lady friend sure brings out the best in your Winchester.

    g.durand, Nice classic style on the Borso.

    Unfortunately no company mark on the paper label. It's definitely German or Austrian.

    I think it might be this company out of Berlin.

    This is from the 1925 edition of Kelly's Directory Of Merchants, Manufacturers And Shippers, German Hat Manufacturers.

    My guess is this hat is from around WWII or earlier. Where did you find it?

    Also please post in the German - Austrian thread.

    Yesterday almost had no time but for work, work and more work.

    Thank you all.

    Yesterday a Stagecoach and today another Stagecoach. I do like the felt and crown height of those Stagecoaches.
    The day is hot like a (not very hot) summer day (30º C), but next week they predict rain.

    No opportunity for a selfie, but a lovelier than expected day so took myself to Worthing beach. Too hot to wear a felt, so:

    Hey guys, So I finally got around to finishing my apprentice piece after some time on and off working on it. This is my first (mostly) unaided hat. As most of you know this week Art Fawcett was visiting our shop. I asked him if he would be so kind as to do the ribbon work on my hat as a memento of his visit. So without further ado:

    Thank you, G. I'm probably more proud of it than I should be. But I worked very hard on it. With Art's patience and tutelage it turned out better than I could have hoped.
