    Thanks a whole lot, Steve and @Dlaniger and @Blare .
    I still view myself as a student.
    No doubt a student who has learned a lot over the last year.
    I’m now learning a lot about dyeing vintage grosgrain.
    Mixing dye colors on vintage ribbon that already has a light hue of some color you’re trying to change is like voodoo alchemy!
    Wish I could find a source for good new ribbon having the same workable properties as the vintage stuff.
    I’ve visited Hufvud’s hat site and was impressed with the look of quality work and the use of artistic flair.
    It’s satisfying to find out that while in hand their quality is just as good.
    Thanks, Reggie.

    Wow, Reggie. That is one supremely nice hat. And I'm liking that jacket a lot as well.

    Thanks Alan. My eye sees some green in the hat and a bit of bronze in the ribbon, but I can't make the camera see it that way. But it is a nice dark tone, whatever the color.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    It's a puzzling wrinkle. When I view my post in Google Chrome I see the same reference for the URL - the image does not display in the post. If I click on the icon and select open in a new tab or in a new window, the image displays fine. And it all works as normal in Safari. I'm guessing it's an incompatibility of the Lounge software with Google Chrome on Mac... but who knows. Just another excuse to make the day a little harder than it should be. 8^(

    Thanks, Michael. The jacket is a goat suede number from Orvis. They opened a store two doors down from my office, so it's always tempting to walk through when they have a sale or when the seasons change. My buddies go there for their flyfishing stuff. I go there for clothes. :)

    Sharp, Ross! You look correct under that fine old western. Self perception tells me I wouldn’t be able to pull off those prodigious proportions.

    Orvis next door would probably end badly for me. They have/had some very nice items in a clothing way. i have a few of them.

  11. Thanks, Dave. I can’t stop playing with the felt on this hat: it’s addicting.

    Thanks, Steve. I'm being a bit unjust towards it, just because it's green:D It is a fine hat hat though.

    You wouldn't expect a black hat to brighten up a dark day, but it does. Looking fine, Steve.

    Niiiice! Great looking hat, Reggie.

    Very nice, Steve. The ribbon treatment is fantastic on that one.

    The wonderful workings of software...:rolleyes:
    Not something I could wear, but, man, what a hat!

    Great colours and proportions, Brent.

    Excellent conversion, Randall. Here are a couple of "before" pics.

    Thanks, guys. I wasn’t sure I could pull this one off either. Still not 100% sure I can now, but damn if I just don’t feel right the moment I throw it on!
