    Nice shape on that hat, Dave.

    Great look all the way, Michael. Hat, suit and coat.

    Super looking black hat, Perry. Black hats deserve more love here.

    Superb, Bob. Not the kind of felt I'd expect from Cavanagh.

    American hat week is nearing the finish line (won't be making it to election day). The blue theme was inspiring the last couple of days. Must have gotten the memo somehow:
    Gimbel (seen on archive footage)

    Knox 25 (also archive footage)

    Champ

    Cavanagh homburg in Midnite (to keep the blue theme going)

    And to finish with some blue again (and some Brent:))

    Brent in blue (thanks to @BobHufford )

    I'm working forward a bit it seems with two from the archive, but they are sitting on the bench at my hatter's.

    Thanks Stefan. I could use some balmy these days.

    Thanks Stefan. I'm very keen on the whole outfit, too. I think the suit is from the early 50s. The coat may match that age. And the hat is a 40s model.

    The ribbon/binding/felt combos on that Champ and the Brent are so top notch i am at a loss for superlatives.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Thank you, Michael.

    Thanks, Steve. Fun to do these because it gives you the chance of handling all of them again. Just wait until Italian "week" begins; I can keep that one going for quite a while;)

    Morning walk, before the sun rises from the hills, in the place where I was born
    Amiata Pelo 6.jpg
    A Borsalino from the 80s in gray very common in the hats production in Alessandria: Amiata
    Amiata Pelo 1.jpg
    The finish is very nice, a short fur on soft felt

    The brims are overwelted with two seams
    Amiata Pelo 9.jpg The sun came while I was walking along this road between two walls which was, in ancient times, the way to get to Verona passing through the cultivated fields

    The health situation leads me to take long walks in the open air and some paths are forced by memory.
    Thank you for your kind words yesterday and congratulations on your magnificent hats.

    All great hats, as always, but that Brent is absolutely fantastic, and the blue liner in the Gimbel is gorgeous

    Thanks, Alan. There's something about those blue hats that's very appealing.

    Have to repost this today Hornskov Rabbit - very decent felt and softer than some beavers I’ve had. Happy a Halloween

    I am becoming convinced this Dobbs Hanover Square is a chameleon. I’ve always seen this hat as a silver grey felt with a silver ribbon. However today when wearing a green shirt... all I see are green tones in the felt and ribbon. I can’t however really capture it in photos.

    Absolutely. In fact, as I scrolled down, I thought it was a green hat. Maybe it’s hazel. It’s a beauty whatever color it is Joe.

    Vintage Borsalino that I don’t wear often. Love the color. The sweatband had been replaced and now the brim is wider on one side. I also think the ribbon is not original. I need to get the sweatband fixed.
