    Good question. As it’s all arbitrary, I think it’s more about how you wear it. As derbys/bowlers and the like we’re common “western” hats too there really can’t be a definitive answer.

    Thanks Stefan. It was a day of many hats and outfits by the end.

    Thanks Moe. The coat is a Zero King. So it was made in West St Paul, Mn. I'm guessing early 50s manufacture. Wool gabardine with alpaca pile lining and mouton collar. Your homburg today was really magnificent. Monster hat.

    Thanks Max. Maybe I'll get around to making a few more this winter. Super looking Leisure Light for you today. Really a nice shape on that one.

    Thanks all,
    Michael

    Thank you Stefan. Knudsen is a custom maker in San Francisco. I believe they make mostly westerns. This one was make in '91 according to a label under the sweat. The felt is amazingly soft but keeps its shape.

    It's easy to see why this is a favorite Doug. It's a beauty.

    Danku wel Stefan. Brim is 5 cm. It is a really nice felt, both in colour and hand. If the brim were a little bigger, I might live in that hat .

    This hat was made in Monza a few years ago by S.C.M. Let's say thirty, maybe more
    [​IMG]
    Marked "Superiore" like others in my collection, it has the following indications in the inside sweatband "Qualità superiore pesco" "Colore :Blu" On the sweatband "Lepre Garantita"
    [​IMG]
    The felt is of a deep blue and the surface has a "peachy" touch
    [​IMG]
    The dimensions are generous with the crown of medium height
    [​IMG]
    Finished in an exemplary manner is a product of the high quality Monza hats
    [​IMG]
    I like blue hats and this one has a very "special shade of blue
    Let's say many thanks for the likes and appreciation on the "Charles Hatters" in Talpa lustee short hair finish

    For whatever reason, I often gravitate towards this Pilgrim when fowl weather is coming.

    Today it joins me as I await tropical storm Michael.

    Happy Thursday.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Mike, the tropical storm, also has me thinking about the odyssey of Mike the headless chicken. Such a grand, hopeful story of transcending a somewhat difficult loss and the indomitable spirit of one Colorado chicken.

    I would say 3.25". But then again I like to cut a 4" cowboy brim down to 2.50"-2.75" and I still call them western hats.:(:(

    Hey, I've read that Pilgrims are a mix of hare and rabbit. I bought a hat with such a mix, and to me the felt was a little rough and did not want to obey instructions.
    How is a Pilgrim's felt? I have been thinking of buying one, just to know I have one. Are they worth it? Wouldn't a hare/rabbit mix felt get wonky if it got wet?

    Here is a Homburg with 2.75" brim and Cattleman Crease. I tried to put a Cattleman Crease in one of my Homburg's but the crown was too short. It has to have a tall crown to start with.

    I hope the aftermath of this traveling storm is not too devastating. You be sure to protect that wonderful hat in those hurricane winds. Yes we all are like Mike most of the time.

    Max you sometimes read a little too much into fur type/blends/mixes. First of all, Pilgrim brand hats are the name of the hat carried by Sears Dept. Stores back in the day. The same as J. C. Penney Marathon hats, these were contract (jobbers) hats. There is some information around the lounge that says Lee was the mfg. of many of the hats carried by Sears and Penneys.

    Fur blends from the day were proprietary and the secrets of the blends were safely guarded. Hare/rabbit, hare, rabbit and beaver hats and the varying blends have been around for some time. There's information about that suggests wild hare, next to beaver is the best material for hat fur. See Akubra, though they now import rabbit fur for their hats. As far as the finish of the hat, regardless of the material used, would depend on the maker and the one finishing the surface of the hat. No well made hat is going to get "wonky" when wet, at least none of mine have. Fully soaked and crumpled in a corner to dry, yeah that'll make one wonky. If I remember correctly Lee was one to really push how effective their hats were at shedding water.
