I love this hat, everything about it. I would find all sorts of outfits it would go with. Stellar!


Very nice! I do like the color of that felt.


Wow, what a finish on that French example. Impressive.


You have the "god light" (photography term) going on big time in these shots. Very nice form.

Sensational! What a find!


Very nice. Good hat to get.


Excellent hat, Joe.


Wonderful hat, great colour, Reggie.


Cool incarnated. That rocks, Ross.

Thank you, gentlemen. These JJ hats manufactured by Roche in Saville are fun and well put together. The felt feels good in the hand, if not better than most modern-day fabrications. Well worth a look if you are so inclined.

A bit late to the party, but my internet connection decided to call it a day. Crisis! Issue resolved now, so onward to this weeks' harvest.

Looks like your week in Holland was like mine in Denmark, Stefan. Rain, then sunshine. Luckily, we both had some nice hats to make the days even brighter :)
Love the Mossant, that's not to leave the other excellent hats of your week out.

Too right :)
Thank you, Steve. Have to dig out all the velours and heathers to give them their turn in the (hopefully) sunshine!

Thank you, gents!

Daniele I posted a few more photos at the link below. I purchased it through a well known dealer out of Tucson AZ, but it is traced back to being made in Oklahoma area, according to the seller.

Very nice Ross hat, but what fascinates me is the necklace. Where is it from?

J. Hückel´s Söhne Standard "Loden" possibly late 1920s. Felt is a mix of colors with a rougher natural finish and easily dry creases. Wide Band / Bow with a blind stitch Over Welt. This hat is from my May 2016 NOS Czech find.

Your unique collection never ceases to amaze, Steve. Magnificent hat with a presence.

It is with great pleasure that today I wear a hat that is the result of an exchange
View attachment 371778Jonathan (the oldfashioned) kindly agreed to send a homburg Aristocrat made by Mallory to Europe
View attachment 371781In return he got a Panama made by Penumbra Hats.
This is one of the very rare USA made hats I have in my collection, so it is, for me, a "new thing"
View attachment 371783
I was able to closely observe a hat made a few years ago in the United States of which I see countless hats on the screen every day:)
View attachment 371784
Well, I'm very happy and thank Jonathan for his kindness
View attachment 371785
Meanwhile, I enjoy the homburg in these warm autumn days.
Your kind words are much appreciated, Daniele. It is with regret that that Mallory was too large for me, but the Penumbra is indeed a special hat. I consider myself extremely fortunate and am indebted to you for our exchange.

Classy collection as always, Stefan. A split vote for the Cervo and Hückel.

Couldn’t locate the, “What block are you showing off today” thread, so I suppose I’ll have to stick it here.

Though this one turned out fine, don’t believe I’ll be making another one and will be happy to pay full price for the ready mades!
It’ll get another sanding and another coat of sky blue, then straight to work on a good friend’s Schoble.

7 1/8 block.
5 5/8” tall. 8” X 6 5/16” at the base.
Since the block needs to be a bit bigger than the finished hat it should be just right.

Got 3 blocks, now I need to buy at least two more flanges.
