    Thanks, I think I might make myself a hardwood open block to my size and redo it with less taper and a different bash. Be fun and a proper open block say a #52 maybe in my size would be very handy I imagine. I got a couple of old hats I could use to learn and practice on more, bugger think I found another rabbit hole! lol, well I have a lathe and massive bandsaw and not much excuse to not have a go.

    As to weight loss, yeah was difficult for sure but life gave me no other choice so it's done. Last time I was this weight I was almost 12 years old, lost 61kg and am truely half the man I used to be. 4XL down to a 32/34 inch waist.
    Gorgeous colour, love the lid and it looks stunning. My only gripe is the small ribbon, no idea what it is about thin ribbon with me but I'm not a huge fan.

    Thanks, gents. I had an idea the Caxton would get the seal of approval:)

    Thanks Joe. I think Portis specialized in unique ribbon treatments.

    Thanks Dave. I think I may have seen one other example of that embroidered logo. I believe the hat dates to the early to mid 40s

    It has to come out and play once and awhile.

    That Caxton is a gem, Stefan. Can't help liking that Stetson an awful lot, too.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    And for those who don’t like Akubra, (which I’ll never get), Here’s a Gannon.

    Stetson 7X clear beaver sold in Phoenix, Ariz. c.1950. One of the first vintage hats I purchased... it arrived smaller than sized and crispy dry from the Arizona heat. My first attempts at restoring the size were not without hardship.

  18. Yeah ... me neither (on my Dell laptop using Chrome). I can see them on my iPhone. I toss a "like" out there regardless as I know they're going to be good when I do get around to viewing.
