    Thanks Brent. The brim does make me feel like I'm channelling a young Jon Voight though.
    It's a well made hat, dating from the 50s I believe due to the tip protector and vapor barrier behind the sweat. Thin felt for a Western. Apparently a rarity, so I'll probably leave it in present form other than cleaning it up and getting it crisper with some steam.

Fairly new purchase from the bay. Not really knowledgeable about Panamas, but I'm happy that they seem a light lighter than the straw hats I've worn. This one is originally from Olé in Puerto Rico.

    Yeah, I saw where the model they used was nowhere near what the actual numbers are in the State. Nevertheless, the actual numbers are concerning enough. But, yup. Like you said, it looks like we're beginning to flatten out.

    Now that’s doing yard work in style. I’m always afraid to wear any good hats while doing yard work, I always get so filthy.......

    I alternate between the fed and a cattleman for yard work. Both of them have held up very well over the years. Nothing wrong with Akubras.

    Thanks Bowen, appreciate the kind words especially from someone with such a fine collection. It sure has been a lot of fun learning, being a part of this community and collecting these antiquated pieces we wear on our heads.

    Thanks Tim, the CC is lightweight so it is a great spring and fall hat.


    You dress up pretty nice, Mr. Jones!

    No students at school these days, so I get home at a reasonable hour. Went for a walk with my wife to see all the flowers in bloom. I wore my new to me Christys.

    I purchased my first Panama from Ole many years ago in Old Town San Juan. Great little shop. I still have the hat, but it really does need reshaping.
