Very early 60s Stetson. 2 5/16 brim.
Sewed this silk/cotton wide binding on last night. Works good, but the cotton/rayon is better.

My Father’s Day Whippet

This one arrived a couple weeks ago but I quickly surrendered the box to my wife to hold for today. I finally get to see what the whippet hype is all about. Beautiful hat and a wonderful time tonight with the family at the beach

Happy Father’s Day

Hückel Weilheim "Chamois", possibly later 1950s. The fawn colored felt is lighter weight and easily dry creases.

Hückel Weilheim "Chamois" models most likely came from the factory with color coordinated small feathers.

Hückel Weilheim Hat Boxes, made by Zeitler - Karton, Murnau / Oberbayern possibly early to later 1950s. The company moved to Murnau in 1949 and are still in business today.

Stefan, we have to say thanks to the old Italian hatters who managed to produce consistent and very light felts.
Nobody like them ;)
Thank you for keeping the level of Italian production high
Thanks, Daniele. That's what I find fascinating about them; the amount of skill to pounce it as thin as possible without going through the felt.

Wonderful light weights. Looking good Stefan.
Thank you, Joe!

Gorgeous blue colour, Max. Would have like a bit more flourish on the bow.

Hi friends.

Just checking in to show that I'm still around

Wore my Royal Stetson OR today on this dull day in Denmark.

I have a lot of catching up to do.

Hope all are well.
Great to see you, Steve. Looking good!

Thanks Stefan. I like it so much I went with it again today.

That is one fine collection of lightweight felts. I'm not sure I have even one that goes under 100 g.

Macy's Men's Store again.

Have a good day,

Thanks, Michael. Some of them are so light you hardly notice wearing them. Recommended! Still like the panama.
