Happy to see the transformation of the Cervo-Tenisci.
I worked many years ago for Corneliani in a fantastic location, it was at the start of my life as photographer

Well this beauty arrived yesterday. And here she is right outta the box with no cleaning up at all. Been wearing it all day. Don’t want to take it off. Think I am in love!![emoji7]

Penny’s Marathon

2a8aa0102f0b4828afe854c4fad64973.plist


Color light tan

Size 7 fits perfectly [emoji108]

Brim 2 5/8

About 4 1/2 crown as creased

1 1/16 matching ribbon with very cool shark gills pattern

Matching trim on brim

The beautiful tan felt is thin soft and moldable. While not the same... this is about as close as I’ve come across to the felt of my Dobbs gay prince.

Great get, Joe!! I have a mint one just like it in 7 1/4 size. Easily my favorite hat, which to me is saying plenty for the makers of Penny’s hats. Can’t remember which hat co. made Marathons. Mallory...Lee? Idk. But they made some fine styles for the big box store. Wish I could find another one just like it, in a different color, of course.

Man, very nice Joe !! And Shark Gills to boot.
I haven't received a vintage yet that I haven't had to work on, although I do have something on the way that should fit that category.....

Thanks Tim... loving the Gills. The seller had this as an afterthought in his auction... it was what caught my eye. It prob could use a good brushing... probably some stream.. but I’m digging it’s character like it is.

Look forward to seeing your next acquisition!


Best,
Joe

Come on, you know you have one! We all do! Probably not the best felt, the brim might be wonky, may be too heavy, a few stains or moth bites, but who cares! Somewhere in your stack you have a hat that is just plain fun!!!

My hat today is my fun hat. A Beaver Brand OR clone in Adobe. Medium-stiff felt, not very pliable, smooth but not the greatest hand, and boy is it fun to wear! Looks great, fits great, and I don't have to baby it too much. I wear this hat around the house while I try to decide what other hat to wear on any given day. And for days out shopping or picking up parts for the car, truck, or bike, this is the one. Rainy weather, no problem, just plop it on my head and move on!

My pleasure, Steve. Good to see it worn with such a great outfit.

Very nice, Joe. I should wear mine more often (but that goes for a lot of them...)

Thanks Stefan.. I came across yours looking through the Marathon mile... could be it’s brother.

Now I just need a cool brick wall and a glass hat base... oooh and some awesome coats and scarves... oh and some cold weather... <sigh>


Best,
Joe

Thank you, Steve.

They're the best of hats, Randy. Like dressing down at the weekend in flip-flops and scruffy jeans. Not that I know what that's like [emoji4]

Your lid looks much better than your description btw.

Thanks Randall...

My understanding was Lee made most of the Penny’s Marathon. And it definitely does share some lines with the Lee I own. Though as with any private label item... there could be other manufacturers.


Best,
Joe
