    No worries. It raised my English lit antenna.

    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.

    1C3E6C1C-FA53-41A4-80F4-D2937DFA0863.jpeg 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. 1CC960F3-0E34-4D2E-9087-36892AE85823.jpeg E0E82D4B-AD17-4412-84AC-3374CBA0D1AC.jpeg E72A9941-5858-4D01-907A-C5E59C27BA1F.jpeg 8849BBAC-A0CA-48D2-9CC4-088F4BA58403.jpeg 8ABC3A60-5789-4B63-A0BE-C84191764987.jpeg

    With little moisture the Fall colors are getting spectacular here right now. Trees are beautiful. Bunch grass as well.
