    You have me drooling, Eric. And the difference between the two is night and day even to the most casual observer :)

    Thanks, Steve.

    Nice to see them side by side. For some reason the narrower ribbon is more fitting for a bowler to my eye.

    Very nice!

    My bowler arrived this morning from @steur. Out of the box and on to my head, where it stayed the whole day.

    Being my first bowler, I was concerned that I might look comical. Pleased to say I don’t think I looked any more comical than usual.
    Etsuko wore a Maxim.

    Good score, Jonathan. Wonderful homburg.

    Nice!

    Beautiful hat, Bill.

    Thanks, Ken. Not as fine a hand as other Barbisio hats, but suits the style well.

    Your friend is all smiles with his Champ! Nice!

    Can't be too certain: it's a very big country. Nice hat though (I'll skip the fact that it's green:)).

    :D

    Super!

    Looks perfect, Gary. Glad you like it and have this itch scratched (for now). Etsuko looking great in her Maxim as well. And the food pics are killing me!

    Bowlers are very versatile hats, formal or casual, and yours looks great, Gary.

    Yesterday early evening I wore a Gannon Wanderer (silverbelly beaver felt with charcoal trimmings).

    Early morning dog soirre in a VS Westin (inspired by the Stetson hat (similar Whippet characteristics/dimensions with an under welt brim treatment).

    The silvermist felt is one of the ArtLite felts. Light weight felt with a liner tip. Excellent hat.

    Home, change of hat/jacket and a stroll around the property. I changed to a Gannon Wanderer (silvermist beaver felt with charcoal trimmings).

    My efforts before sunrise did not capture the details of the hats. Here are some comparison pics of the two Winchester silvermist beaver felt hats.

    Playing a little catch-up...

    Thursday was a day for a Gannon in Granite and a dog walk.

    One of the first days in a while with sunshine. Thangs had been looking more like this.

    I don't know what happened to Friday, but as Halloween approched on Saturday, I of course let the Demon out to play.

    Yesterday had me under a modern RD Stetson Racine.

    Wearing my favorite hat,1980s Resistol 7x, while waiting on my fiance's final plasma exchange treatment for guillain barre ( pronounced like beret) syndrome. Long story,but expected to make a full recovery with physical therapy. Not trying to be political, but was told that the covid vaccine has been known to cause guillain barre, which has no cure. Just want people to know, do your research and make informed decisions. If you've had the vaccine and start to experience numbness and tingling in the feet and increasing weakness please be checked. My fiance's wasn't caused by the vaccine but just wanted to share the information.

    Congrats Gary, looks great on you. Can see why you didn't want to take it off.
    You and Etsuko certainly know how to carry off a hat. And boy, do you eat well :)

    Recent Borso addition. 2-3/4" brim / 5-1/2" crown. Not sure of age but appears as unworn. Johnny Carson fedora tie.

    Just so nobody is overly worried, it's specifically the J&J vaccine that has an approximate 0.0008% risk of GB, i.e. 100 cases out of 12.5 mil doses in the US. An individual is still much more likely to develop GB after a viral or bacterial infection (an estimated 3k-6k Americans per year). GB has also been associated with COVID infection (and the flu, and bacteria from undercooked poultry, etc).

    best wishes to your fiance for a speedy recovery. My dad also had GB several years back, thankfully he recovered and has no long term issues.

    back on topic!
