    Cruise...could be fun. Cruise with teenagers...good call on staying home.

    Unlike some, I have no compunction when it comes to selling hats. Buy, sell, trade, and if you don’t wear them or if they don’t fit, or if there’s just some vague uncertainty with the hat I say move it on. There are lots who would love a vintage Playboy and you could add the proceeds to your future hat fund. I’m about to sell off a few myself. I can’t resist a cheap hat but I’m going to need to learn because I’m swamped (and still buying more ;) ).

    I had a problem early on taking in every stray hat that came around. Problem is, most are still in the hat room!

    Selling is such a bigger pain than buying. Still, I have hats in every room and better to take some preemptive action than to wait until my wife says something. She’s patient, but we all have our limits.

    I keep saying I’m going to pair down my collection but then I don’t want to get rid of any of them. Just now I took a count: 5 vintage in shipping, 7 custom hats commissioned, and another four being refurbished by VS and on its way to Bond. Yikes!

    Bowen recently said he wanted to trim his collection down to 20(ish) hats. I like the sound of that but which ones do you get rid of? What about the hats that don’t make the cut but also aren’t desirable and won’t bring anything at auction? Hmmm.

    If you decide to give them away, send them to my brother-in-law's in Texas. He also is a 7 1/2, and isn't picky. :D

    I can almost feel the clay-like texture of that hat Bowen, sweet.

    Thanks Red. I think the Dallas enjoyed the outing.

    As a general rule, I would agree.

    Man, those both have great finishes. And great shapes.

    Very nice collection. Looks like you have some really hard decisions to pick your hat for the day.

    I opted for a longer than usual bike ride. And eating a pint or so of wild blackberries that I ran across off of the bush.

    It does sit lightly on the head too. A nice little summer hat.

    Thanks Max. The wood fence is still there, but at certain times of day and for certain conditions I would like to be able to use this white background. So I'm trying to figure out the necessary camera settings to get decent photos there.

    Thanks all,
    Michael

    This evening I decided to tweak a really nice vintage Back-bow Stetson Royal De Luxe. I just hated the way it looked because of the wide band. It was very flat looking with no style, tried a pork pie bash but hated that too. Ended up with a raised tear-drop with a small tight pinch at the front, I tried to curl the binding edge as well. 1st photo is before shot.
