That is just about the perfect hat. The proportions are large without being clownish. I really like everything about this hat, Steve. I’ve even saved some screen shots for a possible custom...hope that’s alright.
Brent, Thank you! It would be great to see it replicated. Here are more details. This hat survived some very tough times.

Got this 1950s Adam Executive ready for its first trip out and our first visit back to the beach this evening.

This one arrived about a week ago a bit worse the wear from It’s travels. Most notably the front of the brim appeared to be folded and creased. The felt a bit weakened in that area.

After a serious brushing I got a big pot of water boiling and set to work. After a combination of a good amount of steam and more brushing. It really came back to life. Smoothed out some sloppy areas of the brim and crown. And then focused my attention on the tweaked front of the brim. More stream and more brushing and some of its structure recovered. Not one hundred percent. But very happy with the results.

as it arrived...

Wegener, Paper Label missing, possibly mid 1920s to later 1920s. Fantastic Felt with a very soft hand. Over Welt Brim with Hidden Stitch, Tall Crown with Wide Band, Crown Tip Patch survived. Found this hat back in September 2014.

Overwelt curled brim with a hidden stitch....tall crown ....wow is the only thing I can say. What a wonderful hat. Would you classify it as a Lords vs. Homburg? Hybrid?

I have had this hat for two years.

The straw cone arrived two years ago from Catacaos - Peru. Home of the straw hats in Peru, it is very beautiful.

It was finished by Penumbra hat with my specifications, but I have never worn it. Maybe it's too massive for my taste
Aguero 3.jpg

Today I took some pictures to see it worn, but I'm not convinced :rolleyes:

Many thanks to all those who in recent months have allowed me to see hats of all kinds and styles, have helped me to look at the world with a positive spirit

Hey Daniele I love it! :) Reminds me a lot of my Dobbs San Juan only you have a much cooler ribbon than I do. Think I'm gonna change to something more festive.

That is a fantastic looking hat. Even if you just wear it in the garden it was well worth it.
Wear it in good health
