    Hey all!
    This Stetson 3XBQ Mode Edge c. 1950 has a replacement sweatband and ribbon, but the joy of wearing it is not at all diminished by the repairs.

    Have a great day!
     
  2. Nice, John. I love a Cavanagh edge no matter what they called it. The new ribbon color looks great!

    I haven’t pretended to know a whole lot about fedoras compared to most FL guys.
    I’ve learned a few things on my own while blindly going about the simple side of hatting over a period of thirty some years, but have learned much more from threads written by members of the FL in just three months.
    I am very happy to have found this forum and the folks who frequent it.
    I was a lonely fedora bum before coming here. Now I’m a fedora bum...with friends, and access to loads of hat information.
    Wish I could learn how to find it all on here. Still haven’t completely figured this
    e-place out.

    Thanks Brent!
    The ribbon has been on it for a couple years now, the original was brown. I wasn't a fan of the brown on grey when I found the hat years before, so it went through a few ribbons before I made this one. Now, even though I love the blue on grey combo, I wish I still had the original...

    You know a serious collector when they have Beaver Brand in their repertoire. Very nice![emoji106][emoji106]

    Some sad news... though I think there are many among us would be just fine with these words describing our last moments...

    Hats off to this gentleman.

    I wore my Resistol kitten finish with my kitten, Salome, and my Borsalino marque grand luxe yesterday, and am beginning this morning with my Falcon Park Virtuoso.
    Thanks, everyone, for the recent comments

    There’ll be more about this hat in the conversion corral.

    Looking sharp Jeff. Looks like you have weathered the first family storm well. Stay well and warm.

    Thanks for the color on a Tuesday sir! Great sweater, shirt, tie and hat combos of late.

    Wow! Your renovations are very cool. Congrats on being a learning adult and working on hats.

    Single digits in air temp this morning has me hunkering down in my double Mackinaw and wearing a VS lightweight (silverbelly) down low.

    This mid ribbon is inspired by the venerable vintage Stetson Wanderer. I have yet to spot one in real life. I keep the dream with this and other mid ribbons.

    Thanks! I think the light conditions made it look darker.
