Nice Fed! What's the car behind you? Mustang?
I am really enjoying the lines of this Lee Black Label “Commentator” and it has definitely gotten some head time the past few days. It shares a bit of block styling with my Lee Bronze label. The felt is a rich chocolate brown with a matching grosgrain mid ribbon. The brim is 2 1/2 underwelt edge with a neat stitching pattern. The generous 2 inch sweatband is nice and Soft.. the seam bow at the rear or the sweat has come unattached so I need to reattach that. The cool Lee liner is loose... though I may take it out and set it aside. Those little details aside the felt is in real nice shape and I really love the look and feel of this hat.

That’s just mean Terry! It’s obviously a ‘67 Cougar. And the OP’s name had nothing to do with my guess.
Ha! Oops! And I was thinking that it was a black '67 Mustang coupe, from what I saw of the picture. Obviously, the OP's name had nothing to do with my guess either!
I'm changing my name to "2014RAMHEMI5.7"!
Thanks Terry. It’s a ‘67 Cougar.
From what I saw of it, it looks pretty sweet...and it ought to run pretty strong with a 390. I always liked that engine.
In the garage, working on the kids bike.
Thanks, Michael. This one came without a Carmen or a Karmen.
Fantastic homburg, Jonathan.
I like the styling of that one, Max. Very cool.
Good that you didn't give up, Terry. Looks great.
Classic panama from almost forgotten panama Bob. Looks good on you, Perry.
Nice panama with a very cool pug, Brent (you'll see why later).
First pic I spotted right away that it was the Lee; I wonder why. Must be something that catches your eye at once, but I can't name what that would be exactly. Lovely hat, Joe.
Looks like you mean business! Hat band and brim up look great.
A selection from this week.
Genuine Panama (hey, that pug looks familiar)
I wore my Fed IV and got caught in a downpour. I got soaked, but my trusty hat kept my head and neck dry.
Thank you steur!
My last couple days: Texas Hatters derby, Greeley hat works low topper (with telling expression for the day), and a new Atwood palm straw I picked up on the road.
Thank you Stefan. I agree Stefan there is something about their profile... especially these wider brim ones that screams Lee. I think it has something to do with the blocking.
Great selections Stefan. Finally able to get into a straw here and there I see
Great hat band Chris!
Yesterday I took the Whippet out for morning coffee.

Today I had the Amish style straw out hunting mushrooms.

No great mushroom finds, but while I was out taking my photos I did catch this in the yard.
