    Happy Birthday Alan! Today I bow to your greatness in my Barbisio Lobbia. Your collection and kindness here on the lounge has been an inspiration to us all. Treat yourself to your best chapeau to celebrate!

  2. Thanks Charlie. As my Dad used to always say (and I'm not sure why) ... "Howdy, howdy!"

    There was about a 3-foot drop after the bridge, so I guess it's down in that hole now. Trying to justify to my wife that I need a new(-ish) tractor with front loader and backhoe. For some reason she can spend that kind of money with little thought, but questions if I spend $10 on an old hat. :rolleyes:

    Thanks so much for the birthday wishes and hat salutes. What could be better?! It is still very wet here too but without more troubles than a damp basement. Be careful out there cleaning up. Donna, who made me a surprise birthday party for my 20th, surprised me with a couple of vintage hat stands for my inverse double chai birthday today. I am a very lucky guy to have such wonderful people in my life. You guys included. My hats are off in appreciation.

  6. Thanks Alan -- I spent Sunday in town running two shop-vacs all day to get the water out of our basement there.

    I hope you have a Very Happy Birthday! Love the hat stands.

    It's really too warm for felt but I wanted to take Blue-riginal #4 out today! A navy blue Czech rabbit mullet-burg with a brown Schiff ribbon (sweat and liner C/O Bond). Sidenote: I really don't think my originals even qualify for the "homburg" category... They're more like kettle-curled, bound-edge dress fedoras. Until there's a name for that, I guess I'll keep calling them homburgs!

  13. well it was exactly a week ago that I got into hats! I recently ordered a rabbit felt fedora, and so whilst buying a shirt online i noticed a paper one of similar colouring for €5, so i thought why not, just to see how it looks. Well, after arrivibg squashed into a shirt box, after half an hour with a kettle, tea pot and iron it looked like this:

    The perfect medium for a hat, especially if, like me, your thatch gets thinner everyday. I'm told that from a distance, rabbits look like hares.

    WOW, this thread is up to 6,700 pages!!! Unbelievable.
    Actually wearing a hat today, I go, all to often, without anymore :( Mostly due to which car I'm driving or simple forgetting to grab. But today, my Robert Webber, Pilé/Montecristi, purchased eleven years ago.
