Wellalrightythen, trying to maintain the momentum, here’s my wide-ribbon Wednesday submission; a Dobbs from the later 1960s. View attachment 452612 View attachment 452613 View attachment 452614

Jaunty angle to your wide ribbon Charlie. Good to see you in better health. Old Guys Rule!


Glorious felt hue on this fedora. You really have some real doozie's on your hat rack.

Wow the color on that Stetson is outstanding! You've got some very cool hats.

Thanks Gary for the hat compliment. I remind myself that I need to wear more of my hats - spread the wearing time out.

The nickel hued Barrister is darn sharp! Dynamite pics! Thanks for sharing this special hat of yours.

Cheers to all posters, Eric -

Last night I was enjoing the cool temps in a Lee Commentator. This under welt hat is a well made hat that was moderately priced in its day (50's).

Good morning. Morning temp is finally Fall brisk. I wore a cap for a morning sojourn around the neighborhood.

Home I got some coffee and tools to spread some mulch. An Adam thin ribbon fedora was my hat for the task. Dust and dtrius can be seen on the hat brim and underside. It brushed off easily on the deck.

J.C. Penney Co - Marathon Hats
Midnight Blue-Black/Grey Heather
4 5/8 crown as a shaped (Approx 6 open)
1 3/4 grosgrain ribbon
2 1/8 brim with raw edge

Here is the first of two J.C. Penney Co Marathon Hats. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from the seller photos on this one. Wasn’t sure if it was black and very dusty or a heather felt. Turns out it is a beautiful deep dark midnight blue/black heather. Very hard to get a true representation of the color in photos. Maybe the under brim inside hat shot might be closest to true color. The felt is super soft and will shape any way you want even in the brim which really seems to prefer this little curl but looks great down as well. I do not know the age of this hat. I would say it is at least as old as 1940s.. but it does have a bit more of 1930s styling with its shorter brim and big boxy crown.

Great shade of green, you wear it well. Green is my choice today too. Given my oversized cranium I tend to go for bespoke, that's hat language for, made to measure. The green in my hat is more prominent than pictured, I really should use the camera instead of the phone.
My wife made the shirt and trousers, the ladies at Gamble & Gunn made the hat, whilst Colin, of Colin Johnston Shoes, made the spectators.
Like the hat, the colour green on the shoes is lost to the phone's camera.

Green hat, pants and shirt 003.JPG

Going back over some previous posts I saw the "green" outfit and thought, I'm going to wear that to work today. The reaction has been amazing, from surprise to complimentary, but when one of the ladies said: "I can't believe that a green hat could have such a great appearance." I just had to say: "Well thank you kind lady."

But I must admit the trousers and shirt that Tina made garnered more than a few compliments, to which she replied, when told: "Aw shucks!" You probably know that the hat is bespoke, as is the rest of my attire.

Sharp coat and hat combo.


+1 to cool weather. The Batsakes felt and ribbon combo make it a classy hat.

Persistent Covid fain brog keeps me from remembering the color name of this Art-Lite felt favorite. It’s a regular in the rotation, and the patina is showing. Recently, the finishing touches to the bash were put in by my dog napping on it for several hours while we drove home.

Fog or not you pull the Charlie look off well. ;) Good to hear you are improving sir. Cheers!

Joe the Marathon's heathered felt is something I have not seen before. Congrat's sir. Grand hat.

Green attire matters! I say sharp.


Flat brim or cap you are "well heeled "in your pics. Thanks for sharing.


Perry; I see the differences in the hats and that it must be "casual Friday." Cheers Perry.

First signs of felt here in Japan.

Akubra Snowy River.

Good to see and hear you personally have weathered the terrible weather of late. The Akubra brim adds and really frams your pic. Cheers.

Thanks to all posters. Best wishes, Eric -
