    Stefan, Thank you! I have 3 more to go including today. I think they are probably the finest.

    Another fine entry in your second round of German Hats. I commented on your post.

    This week I will feature the C. G. Wilke Guben, Germany Hat Factory. Founded by Carl Gottlob Wilke in 1822 Guben, Germany. He invented the weather-proof wool hat and was a major contributor in the mechanization of hat making. C. G. Wilke manufactured both Wool and Fur (including Velour) Soft and Stiff Felt Hats. C. G. Wilke Factory was severely damaged during WWII. Guben was the largest hat making center in Germany up to WWII but was heavily damaged during the war. What remained of the Guben Hat Industry infrastructure after WWII was nationalized as VEB United Hutwerke Guben (Guben was located in the GDR).

    C. G. Wilke "Helios", 186 grams, possibly early to mid 1930s. This Wool Stiff Felt is in near mint condition. The Form is fantastic along with the Brim work. The Wool Felt has a fantastic finish which exhibits high gloss. The liner really shines especially at the center so probably the reason for calling it "Helios". The sweatband has a reed on the outer edge which is fairly common with old German and Austrian Stiff Felts.

    Everyone looking great with their fine hat selections.

    I went with two today. The Stefeno “Milan” straw to watch the Blue Angels fly over our house today.

    Followed up with the Super Borsalino to lay down some sod in front of the house.

    Blare you’ve got it going on today. Great hat, shirt and the Blue Angles. A perfect combination. My brothers sent me video clips of the Blue Angles flying over Homestead and Coral Gables.
