    Santana Essential in Dark Steel. This is not the best quality hat/felt but still, you can't deny the style. AND that leather sweat. IIRC, i believe that Bowen @AbbaDatDeHat has a Santana similar to this.

    You are the King of Cool, Rick. The style, ribbon & bow, plus that hatliner and sweatband make me want one

    I know this about you, Rick!
    I've been having fun .. err .. porking/telescoping taller crowns than normally associated with that style .. sometimes combined with wider (flat) brims than you usually see. You see old pictures of guys doing kinda' the same so it's nothing new. I really dig how an Open Road looks done this way.

    Dobbs Guild Edge
    Brownish Grey with Lavender undertones
    4 1/4 crown as shaped
    2 inch pewter grosgrain ribbon
    1 3/4 brim with guild edge

    I love the color of this Dobbs Guild edge. It is a brownish grey that in some lights throws off some lavender or plum undertones. It has a cool little look to it. The oilskin liner says maybe 50s but the manufacturing tag says maybe 60s... so I’d guess late 50s early 60s

    Some good weather for a few days and it feels like spring. So it BBQ time. Unfortunately it’s only February and there is still almost three months of winter to go.
    Akubra Federation III for this Weenie roast.

    Thanks, Jeff. I scored the plaid peacoat on eBay this past Fall for $40. I was looking for something for the oncoming cooler temps though not so cold that would warrant a full length winter overcoat. This has fit the bill nicely and almost is too warm. Wool body, sewn in vented faux fur liner, and the sleeves have thick quilted lining. I was extremely surprised by the overall weight when I received it.

    Fox Knapp was the company, based out of Pennsylvania:

    There is a union tag but I haven't poked around enough to try to date it based on that tag. Can't say I've seen a plaid peacoat like this one before. As you said, usually navy/black/grey. I dig it that it's different. :)

    So, same here. So we have to fight for it! It would be so cool, if akubra had some of these pictures of the graphic on their timeline. Maybe they react. Even, if it is in a funny way.
