    SPECTACULAR parade of lids of late, lads!! Truly special.

    Today was vaccine day here in our town. For this special (?) occasion I grabbed my VS granite porker, garnering great commentary at every checkpoint in the lines.

    I had always wondered why the sleeves of this Sean Jean parka were removable or unzippable.

    Wow Terry! Another great job. You'd never guess that was the same hat. Awesome look!

    amazing job Terry.... I want to say they all ended up under the Hatco umbrella though I’m not sure.

    Thank you Blare! They sure did, eventually. I was wondering, though, if Beyer / Rolnick bought out Dobbs and Knox back in the day before hatco bought out Resistol and Stetson, etc. Hopefully somebody can weigh in. Where's Brad Bowers when you need him?

    Glad to hear you got your first jab today, Charlie. Great hat to wear for it. More than a touch of ol' blue eyes about that one.

    I think it was Wyatt Earp who said “You can tell how much trouble a cowboy is going to be by the size of his hat” you look like all kinds of trouble in that hat. :p
    Not your normal look but it looks good on you.
    Wear it in good health.

    Stetson St. Regis to greet an old friend, Mr. Sun, today.

    Today is not the initial wearing, as I forgot to post a photo from yesterday’s trip to the local winery with Mrs. Snowman.

    Nice looking St.Regis. Hopefully, from today on, you'll be Sunman :)

    Last couple of days out and about in post-Siberian weather.
    Yesterday it was an Akubra Fedora in Burnt Oak in some bright sun.

    Today a Premier Stratoliner in Mink. A Nording freehand along for the ride.

    Huber Velvet on a warmish, sunny day. Spring was finally in the air.

    Spring has come to Central California and the almonds are in bloom.

    My in-laws planted 5 acres of eucalyptus trees 40 years ago for firewood and now they realize that 1/2 an acre would have sufficed.
     
  20. Looks like 1972 (by Koracorp -- after they had already bought Byer-Rolnick back in 1967):

    Great conversion BTW!
