  5. Great Portis, and much better than the 3X you missed...I was the seller. If you ever see any hat that I’m selling that you’re interested in shoot me a PM before there are any bids and we can make a deal.

    Bill, Your hat is outstanding and your shirt is pretty cool. I’m guessing that the latter is a custom?

    Such an odd summer... I'm afraid not enough time or occasion to get all my straws out for the wearing they deserve. For those of you who enjoyed the NY Times article on the making of Montecristi hats (it must have made the news on the FL?), here is a lovely example that was woven in Ecuador and sold from a shop in Havana, likely in the 1940s or before.

    Modern Stratoliner was my hat of choice for today.

    Akubra Bushman got it's maiden voyage. Our power was finally restored so I could fire up the tea kettle and give it a shape.

  11. I like it. You have it shaped like an oversized fedora and it came out nice.

    Why put in all the effort to learn, when I can just ask Bowen, Alan, Steven, Anthony, and Daniel?

  16. ^^^^^ 7" brim width would be Joao-worthy! Maybe the measurement above should be called brim spacing. :D

    Picking up lunch from my favorite Chinese joint in my first Dalton. Best egg foo on planet Earth.

    Oh, and I finally found a mask I can "get behind," so to speak.

    Since it’s rather warm this time of year, I thought I needed something to keep me “cool”. So I decided on the VS “Glacier” that some of us were lucky enough to get from Art late last year before his retirement. This pic is about the fifth one I took today, and still doesn’t represent the color of the hat. So I will just say, it’s a very nice grey to very light blue tone felt. It wears so very good. I barely feel it when wearing because the fit is so good. Didn’t mean for this to sound like a review, but can’t help myself. This is such a nice hat.
    I tried to get mostly the hat in the pic, as it’s shortly after lunch and decided it would be best if I didn’t show up much in the pic!!
