    I was thinking of buying a really nice bowler, in a rare size 7 1-2 from @Randall Renshaw, but just couldn't see wearing it with board shorts at the beach. He was nice enough to point me in the direction of this Portis on The Bay which I am very happy with. It says that it is imported felt and a beaver blend. Not sure what I have but it was sold as late 50s, early 60s.The felt is quite soft and dense. I added just a bit of steam to crease it but it takes a shape pretty easily. The wind trolly is a nice touch, although it would not hold up to the brisk trade winds that are blowing this week.
    I took it out for a walk on the coastal trail near my place, and things were pretty quiet. The tourists are mostly gone, and even the locals are starting to heed the stay at home order.
    Peace,
    David

    Hey, it looks great!! Glad it worked out! Looks right on you...unlike that bowler, most likely.
    Not everyone can pull off the late 1800s vibe while wearing shorts and standing on a Tropical beach! :)
    The wind also seems enough to reshape that hat and that fine goatee.

    That is one nice looking Portis, Mr. Jones. Randall sure has his finger on the pulse.

    Go for the Bowler, too. We all need to come out of our comfort zone at some time. I know you'd look good in one and I'd love to see your beautiful home scenery with you in the foreground adorned in one.

    Good the tourists are staying away.

    Keep well and be safe, sir

    I was watching that one too, looks WAY better in your pictures than it did on the bay. Congrats. You should grab the bowler too, it’s very nice and everyone needs ONE. Even if your own kids mock you. Haha. Looks great Jonesy!

    I wish there was a way to do a direct comparison of your Sage and my Peacock, Eric, they look very similar.

    To move a 1/8 to 5/8 would leave you with a trilby...or a fez!
