Today....inspired to the Max, i’m slummin with Max’s half brother.
The Beaver 50. As fine a felt as one could ask.
This one has a crease that is probably my overall favorite. Not my doing, it just does itself.
Churchill days are good for the soul.
Still good here in Almost Heaven country.
Be well and safe.
Bowen
Ps: i noticed that’s another Churchill over my shoulder. It owns the four dent!

The felt on these Churchills sure looks special.

This morning I put on one of my no name thrift store straws. This one has a nice, vented weave but a super cheap fabric sweatband with a zig-zag stitch along the bottom to create a real sweatband look. This is one of my collection destined for remodelling, improved inside and outside trim. This spring was planned as my H&RH business opening, first at a flea market then at street fairs,festivals and the like. COVID threw me a curve.
Is anyone else getting Security Alert when they try to upload images? I'm going to have to try adding them from another device.

Got that earlier today. After I cropped the photo, it posted. Not sure if that's what did it.

Is the Whippet oxblood? I'm never sure about colors. They look a bit different between my phone, laptop and the bigger monitor connected to my docking station. Excellent look, Michael, with the color palette head to toe. Great, soft overcoat too.
I think it's more of a chocolate brown. Different monitors and devices do display different colors for sure. Thanks.

Way to end the week, Stefan. Love that binding on the Latest Style.

Excellent Michael
Thanks Joe.

Thank you, Eric. The Knox and Gannon look stunning.


Excellent, Michael. Lovely colour on that one.


Thanks, Joe.
Thanks Stefan. It is a sort of unusual color for a vintage OR.

Thanks all,
Michael

Penny’s Marathon

A37FCDFD-861F-4DF5-B8DF-9E1DD24E823B.jpeg


1950s Penny’s Marathon
Soft thin tan felt
4 1/2 crown as bashed
1 inch matching grosgrain ribbon with shark gills bow
2 5/8 brim with matching grosgrain binding

On to another favorite.. The Penny’s Marathon. The shark gills ribbon is always an attention grabber. Love the thin moldable felt. Though it does have a small weak spot under the front of the pinch which can make it slouch a bit in the front.. but definitely gives it character

Out early afternoon for a long walkabout wearing a Stetson Stratoliner.

Evening, post dinner salad, walk in a Stetson Stratoliner in a camel hued felt. Betwenn the time I put the hat on and got home the crown took a bang. This was not a deliberate opportunity to channel Pharrel Williams.

Hats get worn, even with crazy creases.

Be safe, be strong and see you on the street soon, Eric -

Another el-cheapo I have plans for.2020-04-19 18.21.26.jpg Inside of that grey sock is a splinter left hand. Trying to keep the splint clean and pretty.
I believe I have a fracture in a wrist bone but because of a severe wrist shatter close to 40 years ago the x-rays were inconclusive. Setting an appt. with a hand surgeon tomorrow. If those small bones die it's goodbye to the use of my hand.

Besides excellent hats, Eric, your posts always make me feel like I'm strolling along beside you conversing with you on our walk.
Except when there's too much snow. Then I'm thinking, that's Minnesota and he's crazy.

Kevin of YouTube infamy has a good means of perking up that flange with a little steam and finger pressure. You should try it. I've restored snap that way more than once.

The slouch I was referring to is in the front of the crown... gives it a kinda mule kick. Steam might help there too.
