I have been watching your posts and sumise your hat rack is getting crowded. Grand hat and outfit today.

Ack-shully yesterday's hat (I haven't been out of the house all day).

Off for my one day at the office in a Moss Green Gannon.

I do really enoy the green moss felt and Michael's knot on that ribbon. Excellent.

Gloomy or not, great fedora. Marathons are an under rated hat, IMO.

My nicest montecristi (1800 WPI) for work tonight.

Bill your straw hat rack is one I envy. This one is particularly fine.

Cheers to all posters, Eric -

I don’t often comment on your hats because they are all grand, but that Vita-Felt Playboy is on another level. Thank you for sharing, Eric.

Good morning from Minnesota, USA.

This morning I wore a Adam Pacesetter (Executive Quality) on my walkabout.

Home I cooled down sipping some cold brewed coffee. A VS Executive (silverbelly felt with gilled ribbon treatment) fedora.

I headed out on a quick errand under the brim of an Adam fedora.

Fun ribbon treatment on this hat.

The tip liner is solid while the sides of the liner is mesh. Great design.

Two hat day.

Off this morning for a pup walk in a Mallory Coast to Coast.

And out to replenish the coffee larder this afternoon in a Stetson Musketeer.

I am struck that the Mallory is such a "tidy" hat. Neat in its ribbon and binding treatment. Ah the infamous Stetson Muskateer! I am so pleased it has found an appreciating hat rack to reside. Love the creasable felt, fancy stitching and binding / ribbon treatment. Thanks for sharing your hats of late. I do not pass along enough comments.

Cheers to all posters! While I do not often comment on posts, do know that I view and appreciate all posts to this thread.

Best wishes, Eric -

Thank you, Eric. I am lax in complimenting you, as well.

The thing about the Mallory that you can't see is the hand. This C2C has a very velvety feel to it.

The Musketeer has a cousin in one owned by @Blare. His is in better shape, I think.

We are off to an afternoon BBQ come garden party this afternoon. It's a charity event to raise both money and awareness for a very good cause. I text the lady organising it and asked her: "What's the dress code."
She text back: "Wear a hat."
Who am I to argue? I hope that she approves.

I do tend to baby my Musketeer a bit. But I do try to get it out and about on occasion.

something about Mallory of this era… I just knew it was a Mallory just from the outside View. Mine do not have a cool model name on the sweat… but they are among my favorite and always on my hat rack.

I really like that Jonathan! I need to find a vintage bowler/derby in a color other than black. The '60s Resistol I have just doesn't cut it.
Thanks, Bob! I think this one will about round out my derby/bowler collection since I now have black, grey, dark brown, and this light brown.

Jonathan, I'm so happy it finally arrived and so glad that it fits.

Your wife has excellent taste :). It really does suit you very nicely.

I'm so satisfied with the two hats I got from you in the swop. I'll definitely be posting those once it's felt weather for me here in Denmark.

You're a gent, and it's always a pleasure to hear from you.
Well she did pick me, so her taste may be a little suspect. But she is right about this hat. Can't thank you enough for it.

That looks great on you. Will work fantastic with all your jackets
Thanks, Joe, and quite right about pairing it with my jackets as I tend to gravitate more towards natural earth tones. This hat is going to get a lot of head time.

If the wife's happy, everybody's happy ;)
And she's right, it does look good on you. Glad it all worked out.
Thanks again, Stefan, for finding it. I think I now have six or seven hats where you directly had a hand involved and each one is much appreciated and enjoyed.
