    Everybody is looking fantastic in these truly amazing hats! It’s always nice to see.
    My last few days included the dark moss Baron bowler, derbynator style, my Greeley western homburg on a nice hike, and my powder blue Stetson mode edge.

    I tuned in for hats and thanks for bringing a strong game sir.

    I love the Smartlee. I have seen pics only rarely of this model on the Lee thread. Excellent hat sir. It looks smart.

    Excellent Imperial. I have a brown Imperial and do not see many showcased on the forum, nor in the thread history. Later this morning I will have to do some digging into Imperials. Glorious hat in a rare color.

    You and Kennedy share similar tastes!

    Oh boy does your neighborhood have some views!

    This pic certainly illustrates how well you clean up sir.

    Great pics and thanks for sharing. I like the dimensions of your wife's Bailey fedora.

    I tune in for hats and you bring them - thanks!

    Love the dimensions of the Dallas!

    Jeff; A homburg on a hike is exactly what one would expect you to be sport'n. Be safe and best to the family.

    This morning a dog soirre in my Gannon Playboy inspired fedora. The blue mist beaver felted hat I steamed last night to give it a bit more "swoop." I got home from an essential grocery store run and have been continuing to wear it about. Totally comfy.

    Week dedicated to hats formed by machines.
    In the tours with Steve in the Italian headwear we have seen several of these machines, some from before the Second World War and curiously it is difficult to find in good condition hats, already shaped, from that era
    President 8.jpg They were medium and low priced hats, used and worn until exhaustion.
    President 3.jpg Today I show you a hat belonging to that category. Panizza Royal size 60 cm. made after the closure of the historic hat factory in Ghiffa on Lago Maggiore
    President 2.jpg It was probably made by the Cappellificio Falcus in Tuscany.
    The hat has two interesting features: the finished, soft short-haired felt and its color, magnificent in my opinion, everything else is average.
    President 4.jpg
    Thanks for your appreciation and likes.
    Let's keep informed and live in this difficult time.

    Stetson 1X Nutria... the store in Walla Walla took was sold and took on the Gardiner's name in 1910 (store photo below is 1926). I would estimate this hat somewhere between 1910 and 1920. Vintage horsehair band is my addition.

    One of the best licensed hats I've seen, Steve. A real find.

    Good to see it recovered from its salt water bath, Joe.

    Perfect!

    4AA7120E-9A8F-43C6-B11B-4099C2F6C010.jpeg C0EB9702-3E9E-4893-A79B-7A63AA2F325A.jpeg Late 50s RD Stetson with a Selv-Edge and a netted liner. I’ve never seen a net liner in a felt hat and wonder just how much cooler it could make the wearer, but it’s certainly a cool feature!
    Also curious is the absence of a sweatband embossment indicating that this is a Selv-Edge.
    Love that this ribbon is a dark navy blue and not the typical black—It’s lignes also untypical.
    Great hats by everyone on the FL today! FD73DF81-8BD1-4935-A26B-B3B0FC0E08BF.jpeg 05EFB0DE-17CF-48FD-9D4E-6E4E029174EA.jpeg 6E64B2E6-9FE5-4999-8F68-A684AE815809.jpeg

    Thank you Eric. A super soft and light weight felt and in this color is a perfect match for South Florida weather

    Thanks, Stefan. This one is a real win, win, win. Stetson made under license in Manchester (Failsworth), sold at Petitgas in Copenhagen :)

    Nice combos on the Fed IV, Dave.
    Hope all went well with the trip to the doctor.
