    Your collection of green toned hats is impressive. It is a super color for your nature activities. I need more green hats...

    Steve, I see your request with some late
    In my opinion the word, wrote in an ancient Italian cursive, is Cocimosti
    Needless to say the Echter Borsalino serie is fantastic!

  5. Seems like it’s rained every day for two weeks and is forecast to rain all next week. But not today! Wearing a Scala “Panama” ‘cause I can.

    I couldn’t decide which of those two hats I like the best. The bucket might be more functional at the lake. But the MacLachlan sings to me. The sweet sound of music finally triumphed over smells of a fishy smelling head.

    Stefan, Thank you! I like the lower profile. I hadn't worn it in a while.

    Your German series has been fantastic! I had forgotten about the Valetini "Superior" so great to see it again. I really like the thin ribbon bow treatment. Also nice color contrast between the ribbon and felt.

    I took a walkabout just after the rain showers this morning.

    A Gannon Wanderer (granite felt hue) was my hat choice.

    Thanks, gentlemen. These off-brand German hats are almost always very well made. Hard to resist.

    Niiiice! Cool hat, Jim.

  16. Thank you! I do need to hit it with some steam to get the dents to hold, but it's the blocking for a nice Western fedora.

    That reminds me a lot of my Dobbs Fifth Avenue that I refurbished. Same brim edge, same color combo. The felt on mine is very nice and soft too. This Dobbs came to me two sizes too small and was in pretty rough shape. I was able to reblock it to a 7 1/4. The original ribbon was too small to reuse after the reblocking and it was pretty faded and stained anyway. I found another ribbon and bow from a Stratton uniform hat that matched the color of my Dobbs perfectly. I had to rework the bow and I gave it a slight upswoop...

    Before:

    After: completely restyled with new ribbon work
