    A bit of work in the garden today. Or yard work to most of you here, I'd imagine.

  3. Amazing, Fabio! It also shows how style endures a lot longer than fashion.

    Good afternoon on a hot and steamy day here in Minnesota. I took yesterday and today off to enjoy the start of summer. Our start has temps <90'f (<33'c) and with humidity. Not my fav weather.

    I wore a VS semi-calado straw fedora for a morning dog soirre. The ribbon work is a signature VS bow and grand details.

    I got a thumbs up and a comment from a couple walking the path around the lake this morning. It was nice to see faces and be free to speak to folks without standing faraway and raising my voice. A pandemic luxury I do appreciate.

    Yard tasks found me switching to a Sunbody fedora. This is an excellent working warm weather hat. While the palm leaf makes a heavy hat that has me sold for wearing during hard efforts. The 2.5" brim is the one that I most frequently reach for. I soaked the hat under the hose and dipped it into the lake to have the cooler water drip over my head when working. It worked grand to keep me cool for the efforts. It dried out quickly in the 90+'f weather. I sipped a local brewed beer after my efforts.

    I went out for a hardware store errand in an Ecuadorian Panama Company Supernatural Milan. While those are a lot of words this is the finest milan I have worn.

    Excellent workmanship and details in this warm weather fedora. I am slowly and gently wearing the sweat to it's demise. In a couple years it will need to be replaced.

    Cheers from my warm neighborhood, Eric -

    I purchased this Optimo Manhatten fedora when I was going through my brown phase of color selection. This hat has a fairly stiff brim which I prefer with a 2 3/4 inch brim. I added the feather today and will contemplate it for a while. I realize that feathers are a highly personal choice and not to the appeal to everyone. I generally switch them around or remove it completely depending on the mood I am in at the moment.

    The desert rose seems to be taking to its new pot quite well. Blooms kicked into high gear! Think there was just two last year.

    Nothing beats a semi calado for an outdoor high school graduation when it’s 90 degrees at 8:30 pm. This is an Art Fawcett with a green puggaree added.

    It's a 44 and on too large side ... looking for a comparable 42 half-belt to swap for ; )

    This is the second day of posting hats from my brown phase of hat selection. An Optimo Manhatten fedora in light brown this time. It is a very light felt hat and can be shaped fairly easily.

    Out for some Tex Mex with a colleague under the Frunoliner. And my Thomas Magnum aloha shirt.

    Thanks, Randall. Men in suits don't build or fix things and the world needs men who can do that! That Cavanagh looks great btw.

    Thanks, Alan. This was one I saved from oblivion, but I like my hats to stay in as good a shape as possible. Hate to see such wonderful craftsmanship damaged because of my thoughtless bumbling. Looks like it's still perfectly wearable though.

    Gorgeous hat. As long as you can still wear a velour, you should!

    Good looking straws, Jeff. The ultrafino wins for me.

    Very nice, Bill.
