You hardly come around for weeks or months and then you post hats like these! :) Love them all, Max, but the Churchill is a dream hat. The Scott & Co. is also one of the best looking homburgs I’ve seen in a long time.
I came to Texas to pick up a bunch. There are 80 hats, but I can only take 36 with me this trip.
Also, I've been busy seeing to my Dad's will. That will take a while, but I will be back in force once that's settled.

Oh! And the Alley Kat is made with Fepsa felt, and it shows! No wonder it feels like an Optimo, Brent. The finishes are way up there, too.

I don't think I could handle any more pictures of that hat! Fantastic, Alan.

So pleased, I really thought that I might miss out on this weeks hats.

A couple of days ago, we were at a rather good function. "Wear your Stetson for me," she suggested. "With what?" I replied, "think of something," she said, grinning. "For you dear............"Tina made the shirt, vest & trousers, I have no idea how much of her outfit she made.

Superb look on both you and Tina, Robert. Splendid!

Now boxed up for the summer. Autumn can’t come soon enough!
Really like that style; just far enough removed from a homburg to be informal.

For some reason, I don't think it would take much for you to want that.

Off to the office for the first time since the aborted attempt back in July last year. I picked a 50s Strat for the occasion.

Good morning. A morning scamper through the neighborhood had me wearing a gorgeous hued Stetson.

The brim treatment and other features, IMO, makes this hat's quality above the marked "Royal. "

Home and enjoying some coffee time on the deck wearing the other Stetson's fedora. This Stephan L. Stetson hat is a bigger brimmed 2 7/8" minty condition hat.

It has a Carter "Detatchable Leather" sweat.

Obvious, to me, that it has "Olympic Quality."

Cheers to all hat folks. Best, Eric -
Beautiful parade of hats again, Eric. I'll never get tired of seeing your wonderful collection.

Happy as a clam, cause the fuzz is faux. Stetson 100

View attachment 425015
Fantastic hat, Ross. Glad that one isn't faux.

Very nice, Joe. I'm still waiting for one to show up at a halfway decent price.:)

Looking smart as usual, Reggie.

Whoa. That has some presence, John. Nice!

I finally picked up this wonderful Montecristi in Texas. What a wonderful weave! I don't know much about Panama hats, but Graham Thompson says it is a fine, tight weave. A little small for me, but Ignacio will take care of that.View attachment 425422View attachment 425423View attachment 425424View attachment 425425View attachment 425431View attachment 425429View attachment 425428View attachment 425427View attachment 425426View attachment 425425
That's a fabulous looking weave, Max. Something to cherish.

Hey all!

Have a great day!
Great shape on that dog, John. I'll disregard that it's green.;)

Very similar in look to yesterday’s Dobbs Homburg.… this 40s Dobbs is a short brimmed Fedora with a 1930s vibe

Very nice, Joe.

Borsalino for today's errands.

It's overcast, windy, and really not that warm for late spring. On the bright side, felt season has been extended.

Felt weather is good weather:)
I wore the VS felt/straw hybrid I bought from Bill Hughes for my nephew's commencement ceremony today.View attachment 425657View attachment 425658View attachment 425659View attachment 425660
Your mood seems to have gradually improved, Max!

And now I am wearing my new Churchill Beaver "100" made with Vicuña. It might be misremembering, but the felt in this one is even better than the one in my white. It is just as obedient, but it feels smoother and velvety to the touch. I don't remember that feeling in any of my other hats. Both came with identical leather cases.View attachment 425668View attachment 425670View attachment 425661View attachment 425662View attachment 425663View attachment 425664View attachment 425665View attachment 425666View attachment 425667
If you think the felt is special it must be quite something, Max. They're looking great for sure.

Just love the look of this one. Awesome.

O my goodness. Are you trying to give me a heartattack, Max? Incredible hat.

Oh yes, oh very much the sin of covet, yes. Tell you what Stefan, all fabulous as ever but what is an absolute scene stealer is that lovely grey jacket with feint white pin stripes in the first two photos. Part of a suit maybe?

@drmaxtejeda and @steur you guys blow me away with your hats!!!
Thanks, Marcel. Patience and perseverance (and maybe a chunck of money) and you'll get there.

Thank you very much, Robert. It is indeed part of a suit. I think you'd like it; double breasted, cuffed trousers.

Well, after Max showed off his big guns, it's my turn with the smaller guns :(;)
Let's see what this week had in store (I need to a change of hats soon).

Sunday wouldn't be Sunday without the omnibus edition of the Archers and Stefan's week in hats. Some very nice shirts and ties too!

Love the Knox. Do I detect a Fleur ribbon and bow on it, Stefan?

An Alley Kat by Tim Mahovich .
Dang, he makes a fine hat. Everything he promised, and more! This one I bought on eBay, and is too large for me, but Ignacio will set it right.
Tim, you're a master hatter. This one is way up there with the Optimo Chicagos.View attachment 425680View attachment 425681View attachment 425682View attachment 425683View attachment 425684View attachment 425685View attachment 425686View attachment 425687View attachment 425688View attachment 425689

Great looking hat! My first custom was from Tim and it is really nice.

One of the longest and wettest little league games I have ever sat through. Photo evidence below. My umbrella fell apart in stages throughout the game and was left in a garbage can in Inwood Park but the Camp Draft got me through. Oh, and my son’s team lost. :(

Enjoy the weekend!
