    Thanks, Che!
    This is the ONLY place I can get away with saying that I ONLY own 50+ vintage hats. :)
    And have continuously culled the 50 until left with hats that I consider trophies. I’ve tried bringing the number back down to 30/40 but it can’t be done...at this time.
    I feel humbly blessed. Not as blessed as some on the FL, but definitely satisfied with the effort and money spent. Can’t say that about past hobbies or other collections. :)
    I’m sure most everyone here can make, or has made similar comments.

    Your Welcome Randall
    I completely understand & personally experience as winner hats are hard to move on.
    I counted today over 130 fedoras left in my hoard and recently had some heavy hitter local collectors go through my collection just this week I sold over 25 fedoras some of these were exceptionally rare some were my Favorites, i had them Safely sort through everything & i purposely did not touch or get close to any of their Picks to distance my personal attachment I pulled 6 hats for myself prior to their arrival and set fair prices with minimal haggling instead i used my knowledge to push & sell the hats of interest. One of the buyers was a major collector with a last count of 700 + hats in his personal collection
    & he is a major vintage seller as well that many here in the past purchased from him 'Vintage City Clothing' in San Francisco/Daly City
    The other 2 are younger daily fedora wearers & 1 is a long time FL member here & they are vintage enthusiasts
    plus they bought other non fedora items. I needed the space as my home was a mess and I've only started to scratch the surface
    though i have sold many hats in the last 25 years. Its a passion and I'm glad to see they are going to Real Hat Folk.
    whew I also need to move 140 pairs of cowboy boots etc.
    I have been away from here over 5 years due to this great place sure can sure enable a man
    Thank you for sharing your fine hats

    Whew! 130! Got to be hard letting go of the favorites, but imagine you’re doing well with profit margins.
    Good luck on the boots and jackets! Took a long time for me to sell one very nice pair of black Justins on the Bay. Black cow hide doesn’t seem to bring much enthusiasm.

    Lots of sun this morning, I was considering wearing a straw, but decided on this Portis OR clone. Got down to the beach just as the sun disappeared and the rains began. No wind, calm ocean with long waves and easy swim. IMG_0805.JPG IMG_0871.jpeg IMG_0868.jpeg IMG_0870.jpeg IMG_0786.jpeg

    I was wearing a 30's Canadian made Brock fedora during my early morning dog soirée.

    Upbrime was my styl'n choice. The back bow is growing on me.

    I wore my navy Borsalino Anello to work today as I have been fairly regularly these days. It wasn’t my plan when I bought it, but I’ve had trouble matching it with my regular wardrobe. @daizawaguy told me it went well with a suit and as usual, he was right. Anyhow, I’m enjoying wearing this one regularly.
