Campdraft on a dark dreary rainy New England day.
Today...been feeling silly self-imaging under hats for awhile. Felt the old Stetson deserved a day of glory so it’s sharing a day with you all. It’s hard not to want to share such a wonderful old example of history and character and some very fine Stetson work from the early 20th century. Imo
Lot#1558 places it during those times we all love to see. I’m fortunate to have one i can wear, or more aptly, it wears me.
Stetson Boss Raw Edge Fray
Be well and safe.
The clerk said I'm exempt for another two years, so I guess that means I'll be back in two years and a day.
Sure, this was made by @belfastboy as part of a trade. The dimensions are 2-3/4" brim x 5-1/2" open crown. The ribbon is 1-5/8" with a frayed trailing edge on the bow. Weight is 115g.
Here's a post with a few more pics and info.
Thanks, Eric. I'm always inspired by your wonderful hat collection, daily escapades, and fine attire. I may have said to myself, "What would Eric do?" The summons said business casual so I figured a sport coat sans tie would suffice, though I suspect you probably would have been in suit and tie nonetheless.
It didn't occur to me until after I had changed that perhaps you may have been interested in the shoes too, so here you go (with hat to stay relevant):
If I had a hat with that presence that would have accompanied me yesterday, B.
I think it is like they say about some baseball trades....."They were good for both teams"....The Boegels Milan as been my go to hat this summer...most head time of any of my straws.
I'm glad to hear that hat is getting the head time it deserves.
There's a Boegels felt on the Bay but it's a smaller size, 6-3/4 or 7 if memory serves me correctly.
That’s spectacular, B. Thanks for giving me a look.
One amazing hat Bowen. Deserves it’s time in the spotlight. Looks fantastic on you.
Took the little girl for a walk at the park yesterday. Wearing my Resistol Ridgetop refurb...
Before reblocking and refurb:
After: Blocked and sized to fit me, and restyled: this is the actual color of the hat...
Yesterday evening my escapades had me wearing a Knox Vagabond.
I have shared many pics as the felt and insides are just soooo clean and well done. The ribbon is simple and neat. Well done Knox.
Morning dog soirre was taken wearing an over-welted Brock fedora.
The overwelt is tidy and evenly sewn around the hat brim. Clean.
The clean de-bossed Brock logo, definitely intact on this pristine hat, is a classy touch.
The lightweight felt is a very pale blue color. The Canadian manufacturer of this 30's hat did an excellent job in felt prep and trimming choices. While the ribbon thickness is thin, it in no way reflects poorly on the hat. The unlined nature of the hat implies it is meant as a warmer weather hat. The lighter weight sweat, certainly not super durable is comfy and works well in this non-reeded situation.
Good morning to all, Eric -
Borsalino Qualita Extra Superiore
At 2 1/4", not a very wide brim; however, the proportions on this one seem to fit well. I'm not certain of the age of this Knapp-Felt, but this near-pristine hat may be one of my oldest.
The parade of hats is just terrific. Now so close to Straw Hat Day, I’m starting to panic. To help calm my nerves I grabbed the Borsa Milan for the first time this season! Why did I wait!?! I love this lid!!!
It felt like a black cherry kind of day. So, that’s what I did. Thanks, Art.
That is one great looking Borsa Milan, Charlie. Suits you so well, too. Nice you took it for a spin before the end of the season.
Dave i’ve noticed you’ve def joined the Borsalino Band. Love it when that Band gets together. It’s a Band that once you check it out, you can never leave.
Interested in your thoughts of how they rate compared to your other hats??
That’s a great hat, Jim. Don’t recall you wearing all that many dark hats or seeing this K-F before. New arrival??
Looks so black it’s blue. Love it.
Hey guy good to see you. Hope you and the fam have been safe and well in the City.
When i think of Art’s VS hats, the Black Cherry always comes to mind. Of all his creations i think that’s his pinnacle hat.
Always wonderful to get to see that one Alan. Great to see you as well.
That is a fabulous hat.
