No Name as we set up my daughter’s small backyard wedding. Postponed from April (and the large [paid for] venue may get used for the first anniversary — COVID willing). I might have to wear this hat for the ceremony what with 35-MPH winds forecast.
You have been killin’ it lately with those fuzzies! Love those.
Not the worst hat to wear, Bob
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
Like that Game Bird!
Nice unique bash!
I am not familiar with the term “coffin hat.” Can you expound?
Darker of the Borsalino pair I got from Daniele.
Sure! Post-war in Europe, Borsalino would provide these wedge shaped hat boxes mostly for tourists to either ship their hat home or to pack in their luggage. The hat would be rolled and placed inside the box presumably to be removed from the box and steamed into shape upon arrival home. The boxes somewhat resemble coffins... so the nickname. Plus the thought that some of these hats have been stowed away in these boxes over a half century adds to the name in my opinion.
Beautiful color on that Dobbs.
Really interesting piece of history. So those cheap “crushable” hats aren’t such a new idea after all...
Wearing a Bradford thin ribbon in this pic from sometime back...
The other one.
