Ha! Her special power is a super-speed mouth!
Spectacular! The felt and finish look top notch!
Panos, Thank you! My first time wearing it. It's an early Rockel. The company started in 1925.
Next in the black pre-war series, another European.
French again but in long hair finish this time. Unknown maker but similar size tag Fletchet used
Wool or wool mixture, so not real velour nice sheen, though quite rough hand. Double bow, old style wind-cord
Textured and laced sweatband
I hope you enjoy it
Yet another wonderful pre-war black hat, Panos. Surely English though rather than French.
Steve & Panos: I enjoyed both of your magnificent pre war hats!
Absolut fantastic Velour and Bow on the Rockel and
the "English" is a great example how wonderful black hats can be...
Thanks Steve, I appreciate it! Initially I thought as such too, but there are some elements that might suggest otherwise... There were a couple of comments on that in the French makers thread, just recently.
Man, that’s a pretty hat, Panos. I like the portions of 1940s hat best, but there is something so compelling about these older hats.
Stetson Extra Light Weight which was gifted to me by Daniel @Just Daniel:
Brent, I think this one literally nominates you for the best pre-war black hat shown and worn during this autumn (or more)! Wow!
I carried this old friend on my head today, the brief time I was outdoors. Black cherry VS. 2010 or 11.
Thank you, Panos. I never thought I’d have such a hat in my care.
Always a beauty
Very nice, Alan. I’m bummed that I missed out on the old version black Cherry.
Hats from last couple days…
G.B. Borsalino Fu Lazzaro & C.
Enjoyed some cool air this afternoon under the Stetson Flagship after a fairly positive job interview.
Yeah, that’s a shame. For many reasons this is about my favorite fedora. The color catches different light in different ways, it’s pretty unique. It doesn’t usually look this red so I figured it needed a closeup.
Good luck for the job.
Thank you Gary… I will take that!
