A French made black beret.
No worries. It raised my English lit antenna.
Now, back to hats
Another favorite out of its summer slumber. I lucked into this one about a year ago and couldn't believe my good fortune. Exclusive Hats of Chicago. Soft, pettable, malleable, and a nice color combo.
40s Dobbs long hair refurb.
Had a few moth divots, but I covered them by pulling up new hair with a wire brush. An idea that worked!
Also, it was a size seven with a ripped and cracked sweat and replaced it with a vintage sweat that I was going to use in a different refurb. Looks best in this hat, though I wish I had an old Dobbs sweat. Got this one tacked in just in case one comes along.
This was another blocked hat that magically made the stretch to 7 1/4 without losing any height or brim width. Getting more successful at that. Takes a lot of careful effort.
The now two tone green ribbon came from a 50s brown porkpie that had a back bow. I turned the back bow into a shark bow. Didn’t have enough material to make 7 pleats, so it has 6.
Seems most pleated bows have an odd number of pleats. 5,7,9,11. I don’t know why.
I made the shark gills having to use the unfaded side of the back bow and in a last second decision used the sun faded side of the ribbon giving an added flair, in my opinion.
Not usually a fan of long hairs, I’m pretty sure this hat will stay one of my favorites for a long time.
Thanks, Doctor Max!
A great colour combo indeed, Jim. Nice bash, too.
Great re-mix, Randall
The hat is fantastic but dude, the jacket. Beeyootiful
I’m really digging that one Jim
Looks great man, perfect match for that shirt too
With little moisture the Fall colors are getting spectacular here right now. Trees are beautiful. Bunch grass as well.
Just down the road it's the last cut of alfalfa for the year
After getting home I went on a walkabout in a vintage Stetson Whippet.
Cheers, Eric -

Forgot to sew on the matching wind trolley till a moment ago.
