Fabulous collection, there's something extra there too. The 'look.' It's a great assertive pose, just peering out from under the brim. In my managerial days I would strike a similar pose by peering over the rim of my specs at some miscreant, watching him squirm knowing that I don't believe a word of his cock & bull tale.

Tina has been feeling rather low of late, she's suffering from a trapped sciatic nerve, giving her much grief in the derriere. (No pain in the ass jokes please.) We are lucky to have a couple of heritage railways within an hour's drive. One way they keep income coming in out of season is to serve special meals and at this time of year it's a traditional festive fare. We enjoyed such a lunch yesterday and although the weather was cold, the sun shone bright, it made our day.

Had to work today completing a seven work day week - this one was fun, though as I took a bunch of students to the finals of an English speech contest. Seven of the thirteen finalists were from my school. We got second place - our best result to date. I actually thought one of our unplaced students was the best of the lot, but it is what it is. I decided to wear something a little nicer than I usually wear to work. I went with my Hückel.

Good morning folks. It was a cap time early morning in my neighborhood in Minnesota, USA. Dog soirre, snow removal and yard chores in a cap before the sun rose. Gusty winds and a small amount of snow find me able to wear a hat only in the shelter of my property. A Stetson Playboy for a cup of coffee for a morning walkabout.

I dropped my wife at the airport while wearing a Stetson Open Road.

Congrats on the outfit, Hückel, and the silver medal, Gary.

The perfect look for that wonderful steam train, sir. Glad to see the trip cheered the missus up a bit. Hope she's feeling better soon.

Thank you, Robert. The pose came about when I was trying to get a better view of the hats (instead of my face) for the photo. This kind of worked, but my face is still in the shot;)
Wish Tina well from me. I have some experience with a trapped nerve and that radiating pain and numbness is no joke.

And I forgot to mention that you both look splendid as always in that cool train-setting.

some great ones in there Stefan. The Portis New Slant, the brim stitching on the Farotto Malva as well as the Mauser and Barbisio really catch my eye. And the Leica… I imagine takes a great photo ;):cool::D

Love them all, Stefan. I'm particularly drawn to the wide ribbon on the Borsalino for Bubani. The stitching on the brim of the Farroto Malva is also very eye catching. A high quality Barbisio is always one to enjoy, too. The Egeo seems to fit that bracket.
Can't wait for next Sunday :)
