Thank you Eric. When I pulled it out of the box I thought this looks like a special one.

Your Playboy today caught my eye.. you can really recognize them at first glance.
Agreed, the Stetson Playboy has a distinctive appearance. Today's example is distinctive in other ways. I grabbed a pic of me wearing the hat and then took it off to grab a shot of the exterior and interior and noticed the distinctive crease. My crease had been significantly altered when I was unsuccessful at ducking some branches during my walkabout. Bumps and creases were acquired "naturally." Good thing I was wearing my hat.

Funny, I grabbed a Playboy for this morning, as well. This one is the first I ever bought. Perfect for the cool fall temps.

Two days ago it was in the 90s here; this morning it was 41. Fall has landed with a thud.

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.

I love that one. I'll bet it's stunning in person.

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, Eric.
My feijoas suffered a little. Other than that, we’re all fine.
I know we're in the hat forum, but wanted to say I really love that shirt, especially the "ink splatter" pattern. :D
Thanks, Jeff.
It’s the Spanish brand, Desigual.

J.C. Penney Co - Marathon Hats
Seafoam green/grey unlined felt
Approx 4 inch crown as shaped
Maroon/Navy pug style band
2 1/2 brim with triple stitched overwelt

The travel partner of yesterday’s Marathon.. another Marathon but quite a bit different in styling. Stepping into a bit more of 1940s styling with its wider brim and less substantial crown. A beautiful seafoam green/grey unlined felt and features a very cool duo-tone maroon and navy pug style hat band. And it still has its basting stitches tacking the band in place.. which is very neat. The 2 1/2 brim is finished in what may have been Marathon’s take on Stetson’s wafer edge. A triple stitched dual layer overwelt. It appears as if the welt was sewn and then trimmed as if you look directly at the edge you can see the two layers. If I decide I need to, I may see if I can eek out a bit more height in the crown but for now I will keep as is.
