    Early morning found me heading off on essential errands. Irish wool and a Gannon Wanderer (charcoal beaver felt) were my companions.

    Back home and a Stetson homburg took the call for a dog soirée.

    Grilling some breakfast had me outside in a vintage spiral stiched felt.

    Wormser Western Straw
    4 1/2 crown
    3/4 grosgrain ribbon
    3 1/2 brim

    A new addition to the lawn maintenance stable. The stiff leather sweat was a bit snug out of the box. But wearing for a bit it softened up enough to shape to my head.

    If anyone ever did say that, they were a fool, Janina. Two nice Akubra Fed IVs you and Erewhon are wearing in the forrest today.
    I love my Fed IV. Every hat lover should have one

    Nothing says late 1950s like a pork pie back bow Stetson! This old Royal DeLuxe (high end model) Stetson has all the bells and whistles of a fine men's hat that was in style from about 1955 through 1959. I am putting away the summer straws and getting out my winter felts, the first box I opened had all my back bow hats, so I had to give them a spin this weekend. Yesterday, the Saturday Farmer's Market saw a Lee Hats version of this style. Could not resist a photo with a huge pumpkin in an old VW Bus!

    I ain’t gonna lie. Today’s hat was worn to Church this morning.
    My long hair restyled Stetdobbson.
    But y’all done seen it, so I’m gonna wear this’n for tonight’s service.

    It’s my second Resistol find. Also reblocked, restyled and refurbished.
    Late 50s is my guess. The liner was missing, so I added this 60s liner I’ve had laying around.
    This is the 3rd hat I’ve gassed with little to show for it. It did get out the oily spots, but left all the dirty spots, so guess it done some good. Dish detergent and elbow grease got the other stains out, and it was a dirty boy.
    This gray 6 ply ribbon was a band stolen from a stingy Borsa, but looks right on this 2 3/4” silver bound brimmed fedora.
    Crazy, but most of these hats I buy from eBay are supposed to be refurbed and resold, but after I do all the hard work to make ‘em look good I end up wanting to keep most of ‘em! Didn’t help that this one was a Resistol. I have a soft-er spot for the brand.

    Hopefully, it is enough diamond for you guys. Was my first try on a diamond crease.

    I just love a back bow Mike, especially on a Pork Pie. There's only one thing better and that's to see you back on the FL. Hope you're as well as you look.

    Looks good Erehwon, though the lighting probably doesn't do it justice.
    The diamond crease is a hard one to do depending on the felt. I'm no expert, but your first try pasts the muster for me :)
