Thrilled that this one fits. The split on the taped seam worked to my benefit, my first No. 1 quality, unlined and 1920’s lid.

Hard to tell but this is with the brim snapped down

Ohhh. Love em both. Looking great Stefan.
I sent her those pics. She said “Looks good! That makes me happy!!”.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.

Always stellar hats Eric.I have been taking advantage of the warmer weather today. I began with a dog soiree while wearing a Gannon (bone beaver felt). The sun feels good.
Back home doing outside chores I was chilled and put on a warmer vest and changed hats. A stetson unlined Playboy was my hat choice.
Breakfast outside in a Monsavais cap.
Pre-lunch jaunt in a vintage Stetson Buccaneer. (Not exactly the same as the hat in the advertisement as it has only half of the brim spiral stitched. Until I can see an example of an entire stitched brim, I claim Buccaneer.)
After lunch I was hanging out by the dock in a Lee Desert Tones. The waterfowl are very busy today.
I headed out to do a "welfare check" on my wife's elderly Aunt. She is doing well and appreciated the groceries I dropped on the doorstep. We held a conversation thru the front window and shared a beverage. She sipped tea and I sipped a mug of coffee. I wore a Homburg. She commented that I needed to wear a less dressy hat. The homburg was to dressy. Right she is! Our discussion was easily started as she spoke about how her late husband wore a hat daily. His favorite hats were the "New York hats" -Mallory's. When their family was doing well, post depression, he had as many as 3 hats in the hall closet.
On with the balance of Saturday evening. Be safe, be strong and see you on the street soon, Eric -
