    I missed a weekend and 10 pages to see :)
    Last week I ended with my beloved Stagecoach hats.

    This week I start with this Mackey custom (not custom made for me but fits like a glove).
    Wore the same hat to vote for the "new" Portuguese President.

    What a velours series Wayne, all fantastic, I particularly like the rolled brim ones!
    A true playboy Joe, love it! ;) Looking forward to seeing your new 9(?)-batch get!

    What to say Steve, breathtaking as all of your hats!

    Thanks, Panos. It doesn't get out much but that's because it sits in the safe!

    Thank you, Steve. It's a team effort so they're all winners!

    Thanks, Daniele. I'm very fond of all my nutria Borsalinos. This one has a little extra touch by Fleur.

    Thank you, Michael. It knows it too!
    O yes! It can brighten up any day with that felt.
    It just could be that I still don't have a velour homburg. Looking at that one that is something to be corrected. Very cool, Michael.

    Truth is that I just needed something warm to get out and throw the trash (-8c)...

    ..but there is a dress code policy around here, I hope Humphrey approves ;) 20210125_200606.jpg Huckel Prima pre-war velour. It can take any crease but it kind of prefers just deep centre crease and upbrim 20210125_204009.jpg 20210125_200329.jpg

    Thanks, Bob. That one gets a lot of likes (and it deserves it).
    Thanks, Randall. Martora is the Italian name for pinemarten. One of the more exotic critters to donate fur for a hat.

    Beauties, both of them, Joe.

    Thanks, Bowen. I have a lot of fun handling all of these hats again.

    Wonderful looking felt, Steve. Amazing that the felt looks so pristine while the liner and sweatband were just gone.
     

  16. Such a wonderful hat. I like the hats were at a glance you can tell they are something special without being able to say exactly why. The shape, style, ribbon/bow, luster of the felt, and so many other things all quietly scream that the hat is extraordinary. I love my custom hats, but they seem to just come up short with this synthesis of perfection; maybe in 80 years they’ll be there too?

    That's some nice velour, Brent.

    Great find, Jim. You picked the right weather for wearing it!

    That's some stellar parade of velour, Wayne. Magnificent!

    Oddly enough the last shipment I received from the US took less than a week!
    Yes, I know it's green, but damn, that's one nice hat.

    By all means bore us with them, Héctor! Great to see you again. Hope you are doing well.

    O wow! I need one of those in my size.

    Great, now I have to add a booby trap;)

    Wonderful hat, Steve. The grey in the felt adds visual interest.

    Intermission au Francais. Italian week is still going, but I had to try these on. For being French they were very easy going and accepted going from 55 to 56 without any protest.

    Laubin for Gérard Sools
