A Champ stingy today. While researching the store it was sold from a ran across a little pocketknife on ebay with their name on it. Had to have it. It seems back in the day Belk would partner with local merchants to open stores, hence the Belk-Broome name:

Great little Champ Tim. Love it. Looks very similar in style to the one I have. Mine may be a little too snug for me though .. unless it stretches out some from wear. Thought it might be good for my son who still has a smaller head than me... he said it made his brain hurt. LOL

Janyška "Parga" possibly late 1930s early 1940s. I really like the shade of blue. The felt has a Chamois like finish and is very pliable. This hat also has a narrow sweatband.

This week I will highlight Janyška & Cie. from Czechoslovakia. Janyška & Cie. was started in the 1920s in Valašské Meziříčí – Krásno about 25 km from Nový Jičín (location of JHS, BB, AP). Janyška & Cie. was a Czech company based on Austrian hat tradition. Janyška & Cie. became Tonak Factory 2 post WWII and the factory was closed 1961.

I've been trying to pick some hats that don't get much head time lately for my daily masked Corona crawl down the coastal path, Ke Ala Hele Makålae, but the days are starting to run together and I think this 60s Playboy has been out for a walk recently. However, I did break out one of the wonderful masks that I received today from West Virginia and the daughter of @AbbaDatDeHat. I'm stylin! Thank you to my friends in West Virginia!
My thanks also to the Hawai'i National Guard I met today on my walk, for their help in encouraging everyone to stay safe and follow our Stay at Home Order, and social distance while exercising.

Took the new to me Resistol out for a spin today - a walk around the neighborhood with my wife.
Just for fun, when we got home I tried it with my poncho. I can't remember where the poncho is from - somewhere in South America - maybe Peru. I got it back home in New Zealand about 20 years ago. I used to wear it quite a bit, but not for a long time now. I figured it might work with this hat, though.
