It's finished! This is the 3X Resistol Pendleton Navy Blue again. I cleaned up the hat band and it's now sewn on. The red liner and the red sweat bow have also been cleaned up like new and are now in the hat. Also the size tag and the manufacturer's label have been re-attached. I have those pictures to post in the Conversion Corral but I'll do that Thursday when I'm off work and more rested. Meanwhile, here's a couple more head shots of the hat....

Thanks again, Michael R!
Holy cow, that thing is a work of art!!! You are an artist with all these conversions! Your work is fantastic and that is one hell of a hat!

Thanks Philo. I'm sure this hat will see a lot of head time, though it may be a bit lightweight for full on winter wear. After seeing the color that Matt's mirtillo nutria was showing this morning I had to take a few more photos and see if I could find any hint of that.

That was about the best I could see in the purple area.

And that on the blue end.

It's apparent color seems to be strongly affected by the lighting and what other colors are around it.

A very sharp looking Chameleon Homburg Michael! It looks better and better in every different light setting :)

In keeping with my policy of wearing a different hat to each day of my class at PSU, today's choice is my older Mallory Derby. It is probably pre-war, with the 1823 date and beautiful liner. There are a few "older" students in the class (senior auditors) that have appreciated by hats this term. I wear the hats for them, not the kids who could care less.

Phenomenal Derby Mike!!! Seeing this hat of yours only reminds me why I pulled the trigger on my early Mallory Derby! I must humbly admit that you wear yours better than I do. This one truly suits you my friend! Top notch :)
