Absolutely wonderful Randall.
That is one heck of a cool lookng Stetson, Randall. Love everything about it. Looks good on you too, my friend.
She is a hairy beaut!
What one would call a petting hat. Love those
30s/40s Midnight Blue Dunderry from Montgomery Ward
What a spectacular shade of blue, at least on my end. Really like that now too.
That is one wonderful blue, Joe. Great ribbon and bow treatment, too. Love the liner logo colours.
I would compare it to Resistols Kitten finish felts but stronger very lite and EZ to mound and shape
That's a real good hat you have a Trophy & excellent shape
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.
Thanks Alan! Light cooperated today and the colors really picked up
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
Thank you much Steve. Always happy when this one comes up for its turn
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.
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.
Checking on winter damage to landscaping while wearing a 40's Canadian made Stetson Premiere.
Cheers from Minnesota, Eric -
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.
