    Yesss Max, now you are cooking! Such a rich color. Great period bow work.

    The finish on that one is super. Love the light weight mesh liner.

    Another stunner Max. I think you are on the right track to be a true collector.


    It looks like a completely different hat!

    I like the sage color, I have a Excellent (now premier) Stratoliner. Don't wear it enough. Love the lines on this Whippet. About the only way to get a Stetson worth wearing today is to pop for the top drawer level constructions.

    Nice Grade 12 Doug. How about a detail shot of Art's ribbon work. Love it.

    Steven, what are those "buttons" with letters on the inside of the sweatband? I have seen them before, but with different letters. Are they the previous owners initials? Or the restorer's?

    Nice as always, Eric. I have a Playboy on my Bucket List. Too bad I'll probably kick the bucket before I can ever get one.

    Thanks! I hope you find some.

    Mike, Thank you!

    Max, They are the initials of a previous owner. Normally they would be applied by the hat store. You also see them on some pre WWII American Hats. In Germany they are still occasionally used today. Hat stores in Germany usually have old stock. Stetson Europe also makes a modern version. They have a nice appearance but cut into the sweatband.

    Richard, Thanks!
