    I love a good bowler/derby, but that Playboy is fantastic! Glad to hear that you were able to see your folks.

    Thanks Terry. It runs strong and the torque of the 390 sits you back in the seat quite well.

    Looking good, David. Mike sure makes a nice Panama for a fair price.

    I’m curious: which hats have held up the best in the tropics? Hemp, toquilla, Milan, etc? I’m assuming the polypropylene Akubra looks like new, but which of the natural straw hats have held up the best? Thanks.

    I am thoroughly impressed T. You're right, the hat does appear different throughout the movie. Often times it has a very distinct cowboy curl to it, but I really like this version of it. The subtlety of it really works. Tremendous work.

    A two hat day today.

    Bailey paper for grocery shopping in the morning. My wife wore her summer Christmas present Panama hat - sorry, no photo.

    Thanks Brent. the Vanuatu pandanus holds up very well, the Akubra hemp holds up nicely, but my stetson hemps faded pretty quickly in comparison. The Toquilla went limp the fastest. The Milan dualist Art made is a nice mix, and seems to be doing just fine. I am thinking of going with a toquilla crown and felt brim next. I have shellacked the Stetson hemps, and my Panamas and they are good to go again.

    Yup. That Cougar is definitely nice! My first car way back in the day was a '66 Ford Custom 2 door that had a 390, and like you said, it was a torquey engine that could sit you back in your seat. Once I tromped into it, that car was gone. Your Cougar paired with a 390 is a good combo. If I remember correctly Steve McQueen's Bullitt Mustang had a 390. That was a good engine.

    Yesterday evening was all about the Stetson Startoliner (sage green).

    [​IMG]

    Early morning dog soirree found me sport'n a Stetson De Luxe Stratoliner.

    [​IMG]

    A change of hats for an outside breakfast. I wore a Gannon Wanderer (beaver steel gray).

    [​IMG]

    I visited with the neighbors speaking with them from our dock. A VS Wanderer (Artlite silverbelly felt) was my lid.

    After a run and a cool down walk I am sipping a beer listening and watching the loons on the lake. A VS Wanderer (Artlite Granite) hat is my go to at the moment.

    I do not want to go inside on this cool Minnesota summer day.

    Cheers. Be safe, be strong and see you on the street soon, Eric -

    Eric... your hats remind me of that old US Army recruitment commercial. Like they are saying “We do more before 9AM then most people do all day”.

    you and your hats are an inspiration sir.

    Well said! I get exhausted just reading Eric’s posts. The hats and caps are always exceptional and Eric just has this aura of an old-school gentleman...back when that title had more meaning.
