Modern Open Road Royal Deluxe in Sage
Nothing so far today, sitting here playing on the computer, waiting for it to warm up to milder, supposed to be mid to upper 50's today. Yesterday the wife and I went shopping and I wore the Akubra Kentucky Rancher in lignt sand, got a few nice comments.
Off to get foster kittens their shots. A cheap - but good looking stingy. It may be wool but it has a great shape.
Stay safe and do what you can. A little love goes a long way.
On the Sixth Day of StingyMas....
Borsalino Colombo - Mogano
Velvety Velour like Texture
5 inch Crown with corded band
1 3/4 brim with double stitched over welt
A bit cooler weather here today called out for the Borsalino Columbia. What this little hat lacks in brim at 1 3/4 it makes up for in pet-ably soft velvety velour like texture in a beautiful dark chocolate brown. The crown checks in at 5 inches as shaped.
Keeping safe on my balcony with an Optimo bleached Silver Belly today
What do ya get when you take a Stetson Rancher & give it a pencil curl with a brim reshape? A better western. In my opinion! Gents I have a ton of catching up to do on here. So forgive me if I haven’t given you a proper thank you for the likes and comments. I have a couple pages of your top-notch-ness to go through!
Love it. Looks great Jesse.
72 last night, had to break out extra blankets for the bed. Brrrrrr.
Fantastic array, Mike. I'm a sucker for a back bow, too. Those Pork Pies are truly iconic.
Not by default, but those things can be added to taste.
Dark blue homburgs? Count me in! Wonderful hat, Randall.
With the Christmas season upon us, everyone seems to be in the mood for green hats. Let's not overdo it here, people!
A heather felt and great form; those are a lot of redeeming qualities, Daniele.
Those vintage Canadian hats are a sight to see, Eric. Truly wonderful hats and a dream find.
Nice one, Michael. In all its simplicity that liner really stands out.
Looks like a fantastic felt, Randall.
That is a beauty, Bill.
Whoa! That's quite the hat, Steve. There's a lot to pet there.
Keep them coming, Joe!
That velour looks great, just needs to be petted. It's the season for petting hats as well it seems.
Now there's a task for the holidays! Cool parade of hats, Mike.
It's usually Norwegian Blues that make the escape, Johnny; they tend to pine for the fjords
Well, it gives you the chance to wear felt and leather jackets, David. Not so bad I'd say!
Another petting hat! Nice! The peacoat is a great find, Michael.
It might be green (we can't all be perfect), but that form is is classic Borsalino.
I actually never these Colombo hats over here. Makes me wonder what market they were for. Mogano is a great colour, Joe.
A hat you may need gloves for, Max. Beautiful.
Cool! The curve works very well for that hat.
Finally cool enough for some of the long hairs. Borsalino Serikon
I’ve got a thing for these slightly odd hats.
I like it a lot. That cured brim edge really makes the hat, and you did a great job getting it even and smooth.
When is a stingy not really a stingy? During the later 1950s, brims started to slim down, a 2" size became quite popular. We now consider them a "stingy", but looking at the hat, it still has Fedora lines and construction. I consider a stingy one of those 1965 1 1/2 plaid "Tom Landry" hats. A prime example is this lat 1950s Dobbs Twenty. Great felt, classic lines and a Guild Edge (Cavanagh edge). Does not look like a stingy on the head, IMHO.
Bright, sunny and crispy afternoon on the SF Bay. GB Borsalino stingy
I like it!! Good job on the hat.

Wonderful Twenty Mike. Looks fantastic. Merry StingyMas
