Gorgeous looking hat
Wow, that's a stunner Steve. I love those Maysers
Looking good, cowboy. That is one seriously great looking Western, Ken.
Thank you, Ken. Luckily, they're ubiquitous here in Europe. I have our favourite Dutchman to thank for this one.
Looks fantastic . I have an older Wormser and absolutely adore the felt and quality.
Yes, he did!
Thanks very much fellas. I believe this is the only example I have of a beaver fur hat from those heady years prior to the great depression. They were a special luxury back then.
Mined from the deep recesses of the Fruno hat storage area, a 150th Anniversary Deckard design.
Mining is a dirty business, Jim. Best sell your hat mine to me
Sweet fedora. Great color combo.
LOL, I noticed that too. Oh well, it just adds to the mystique.......
Tonak "Gazela" possibly mid 1950s.
Back in January 2015 I received this book "170th (1799 - 1969) Anniversary of TONAK" (actually 24 Years). No mention of Hückel (146 Years, 1799 - 1945) on the cover.
Very cool history there, and great hat.
The Racine! I remember that hat. That's a good one.
That is one beautiful shade of blue, Steve. Is it a heather felt? Looks like it on the photos. I
Thanks, Ken. And everyone else, too. This is a great hat in every way, to definitely include the felt.
A sneak peak today. I’m waiting on an accompanying piece to show up hopefully tomorrow, before posting on the New Hats thread. Just pulled it out of the freezer last night and steamed and shaped it, so had to wear it today, but I will have a very cool presentation tomorrow.....
Here’s another $60 hat I got this week from Goodwill.
It’s very similar in age and look to the Open Road (type) hat that was given to me from @Rmccamey . I call that one my MacKamie, as Randy says that’s how his name was spelled back in the ancient times...when he was born?
This one is designated as an actual Open Road and couldn’t be but a year, or two, or so, between each other.
Which begs the age old question:
is an Open Road an Open Road even if it’s not designated as an Open Road on the sweat?
Notice, too, the small differences between the two.
My new one has a 2” sweat and the MacKamie has a 1 1/2”
The liner tip logos are real similar, but subtly different.
The sweat logos are completely different. I shaped them both differently, intentionally.
They’re alike in dimensions, felt color, hand and feel. They also have a few moth bites, but not annoyingly so.
Maybe these hats shared the same
Mother or father.
Also, the reason the wind trolly is placed backwards on my newest to me hat is because the moth larvae ate a hole in the string so I sewed it back together and hid the repair just under the ribbon in the back instead of seeing it plainly in front.
Anyone have a comment on these two hats?
