    I'm moving to Hawaii. For the scenery of course. Just look at that beach and that ocean!

    That Silverbelly OR is definitely a good look for you. I gotta say, I think it suits you better than any you've ever worn. You're a natural for that style! Have you tried other Western styles?

  15. You do wear this style very well, but like Alan, and a select few that I’m not a part of, you wear everything well. You look natural under bowlers, Homburgs, fedoras, etc. We can help you out when you want to try out a “10 gallon” western! :)

    Borsalino Debrosan - SFINGE (Light Tan)
    5 1/2 crown 4 3/4 as shaped
    1/2 inch tri cord ribbon
    2 1/2 brim with 1/8 binding on underside

    I got around to steaming this one into shape today. It could probably use a bit more work. But this one cleaned up nicely So far from the shape it arrived in. I haven’t attempted to do anything to the small reddish stain on the back of the brim (maybe red wine?) but it is not too obtrusive.

    Taking a stab at the manufacturing label this is a Borsalino Debrosan in the color SFINGE which is a light tan that in certain lights can lean more to yellowish. I think this type of label points to mid to late 1950s. I’m sure Stefan can correct me if I missed on any of that. I think the original store is Calliada in Livorno, Italy. This is a very thin light weight unlined felt with a decent 5 1/2 open crown and a 2 1/2 brim. Very unusual to me is the very thin grosgrain binding only on the underside of the brim.

    Now on to the much appreciated care package that arrived from @jlee562!

    Stetson with mid ribbon. Finally cool enough for felt and a Muwat Kentucky dry fired cigar.

    He definitely has that ability. It is one of his super powers. (Or was it villain powers)

    Out and about getting all the stuff for the kids going back to school. Including masks... at least doing it in style with my green VS by Art Fawcett.
