    "What is the next hat you are saving up for?" sounds like a great thread. May I suggest you start it?

    This is why The Lounge is so addictive. Steve points out a trivial nicety, worded so that it's not possible to think one is being corrected. You would think that someone who grew up knowing that the name Cholmondeley is pronounced Chumley, would know that the name Coke is pronounced Cook. Trouble is, Coca Cola, or as it's better known, Coke, has a lot to answer for.

    I will. I just wanted to check in to make certain I wasn't duplicating somewhat an existing thread.

    My reply was not in any way, shape, or form an attempt to correct you, dear sir. It was more an attempt at adding to the enjoyment of the addictive trivia for the edification of our fellow Loungers. Not to mention communicating with a fellow Brit in our own idiosyncratic way :)

    Adam Executive - The E-VENT
    Light Pecan Colored Ultra Light Felt
    4 3/4 crown as shaped - about 5 1/2 open
    Unlined and vented
    2 5/8 brim with very short underwelt
    Two rows of brim stitching
    3/4 inch matching grosgrain ribbon
    Box pleat/gills treatment

    The latest arrival, which came off a hot tip from Brent @deadlyhandsome, is the Adam Executive - E-Vent. It was without a doubt the unusual ribbon styling with a decorative wind trolley button sewn on for good measure along with the cool vent pattern that caught my eye. But upon arrival there is so much more to love. This unlined felt is super soft and ultra thin. That sort of “blow a crease in it” kind of felt… but somehow incredibly obedient. The brim is 2 5/8 with a narrow underwelt and two rows of brim stitching. I couldn’t tell if the E-Vent sweat cooling system really worked… but it did FEEL like it was cooler.. may have been my imagination. It really is an Exquisite hat that fits absolutely perfectly. Thank you again Brent for thinking of me on this one.

    I believe this one will be getting some wear in the main rotation here is sunny South Florida.

    I’m so jealous of that’n, Joe! That’s one ventilator we could all want to be attached to! Love the color and the vented sweatband and the decorative side vents and the bow and the proportions and and airythang!

    That’s one Knoxious fedora, Bill.
    In this case, the play on words carries a super positive connotation.

    Thank you so much Randall. Really happy with it.
     

  16. Great proportions! I also love the colors: I wouldn’t have thought I would, but they really work well together.

    Excellent grey, Mike, and a striking interior!
    I'm a sucker for those earth tones, Danielle.
