Akubra Federation Deluxe
Fritz Hückel Hutmacher "Zephyr Seal Velour" probably mid 1950s. This hat was made for the American Market. Hückel Weilheim probably couldn't use just Hückel because Tonak had the rights to the trademark.
That’s one fantastic Velour Steve. (No seals harmed in the marking of Steve’s post)
Joe, Thank you! Only some Wild Hare. Great looking Borsalino "Marque Grand Luxe" from you today.
Some nice Borsa's above! This hat looks great on you, Joe!
I'm a fan of the snapped up brim: open hands, nothing to hide.
Wow, what a hat.
You, sir, are under dressed ; )

Wow, lots of great hats this week. Today Magill's Imperial 100X Pure Beaver.
Ouch! Without going into great detail, let's just say I sympathize.
Super Stetson Special, BTW.
This Optimo is simply an unassuming comfy hat with a nice hand
Eric, you always post wonderful hats, and sometimes it is hard for me to keep up and comment on them, but I had to chime in on this, Brock. What a unique and cool-looking hat!
Thanks, Stefan. Yes, the Madrid JJ Hat Center house brand is one of those Spanish-made hats. A pretty well constructed modern production hat with a decent quality felt.
Your current hat barrage, as usual, is great. My favorites are the Mossant, Echter, and the Borsalinos; also, I have to say you do look the part in those American westerns.
Hey Michael. You were wearing several favorites this week: The Golden Pheasant Homburg, The Hanover Square, and this Borsalino. I always enjoy seeing them. Golden Pheasant Homies are hard to find. I also had to call out the leather trench! That's a boss coat. I take it that it is of 1970's vintage?
What a fantastic looking go-to hat, Dave.
Did the dogs finally come home? That 30's Stetson is fabulous and indeed special! Is it black or Blue? I also really liked that Portis you were sporting the other day. Nice lines and a very stylish ribbon.
Steve! That Zephyr Seal Velour is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. The hat's shape, luscious finish, opulent ribbon with fancy pleats add up to one fantastic fedora. You can certainly find them.
Thank you Mike! Yours looks fantastic!
That's a nice looking hat, Reggie. Great color and a fine looking felt.
Thanks Reggie. Some of my favorites for sure. I found the Golden Pheasant at the local Goodwill a few years back, right before they went to selling all the hats online. The day after I got it they had two Biltmore milan homburgs. Might have been the last hats I found there, except for the Halloween specials. I do think the leather coat is from the 70s. It's a Bert Paley. I think he may have lived in your neck of the woods and commuted to New York for his business.
Thanks gents! The Stetson Special is dark blue and the dogs are safe and sound. The toe feels better (but looks worse). Hope everyone has a great hat-wearin' weekend!
Reggie, Thank you! I hadn't worn this one in a long while. Superb color, finish and form with your Magill's Imperial 100X Pure Beaver!
That one is spectacular indeed!
That's a pretty sweet Borsalino too! It looks just right.
I like that Chocolate V.S. a lot, Scooter. It has a commanding but relaxed presence.
Jonesy, I am totally digging the felts and the leather jackets. You need to come east and catch a cool breeze in those garments as I need to go west and catch a few waves!

Have a good Saturday,
That is one classic looking Stetson Homburg, Bob.
Sorry to hear about the toe. Hope it heals up soon.
