I was inspired by Gary and wore my stingy Knox Premier today, 2" overwelt brim.

As a young man, I remember getting a made to measure suit from Dunn & Co, back in those days dumbed down was unheard of. There's a photo on my desk of the grandfather who died before I was born, the hat he has on is the image of your Cavanagh. Have to say, it's a tough choice, but the Cavanagh just edges it.

Had my Grandfather been alive today I would probably have been given a lesson in monetary value. He would not approve of a bespoke hat, but he would have liked the finished result, so do I.

Day four of pre-Stingymas sees me in Crosby & Co bowler for a visit to the fish market.

OK, a bowler isn’t technically a stingy brim, especially when it’s 6cm front and back, but I figure the 5.5cm side allows it to sneak in. I have to cheat a bit in order to extend my pre-Stingymas!

The kites were out in force.

Etsuko went for the same hat as yesterday.

Thank you, Robert. Your hat looks well worth the money. As they say: it's a lot of money but it's not expensive.

A black Barbisio during the pipesmoking session! Have a great weekend y'all! View attachment 469961 View attachment 469962 View attachment 469963
Gorgeous Barbisio, Marcel. Still a favourite brand.

No matter how good Etsuko looks in her hat, I have to give it to the bowler this time. I expect the food pictures as soon as the fish and seafood is prepared :)

Oops! I accidentally deleted the food photos. I do have this, though.

You definitely pull off that bowler quite well, Gary!

This morning has been cold and I can wear a hat only when I pull my collar up. Early morning walkabout in a Royal DeLuxe Stetson OR.

A warm-up inside and I headed back outside for a check of the property. I changed to a VS fedora (inspired by the Stetson Stratoliner in dove grey beaver felt).

A bit later I headed out to fill bird feeders and to clear the boathouse of ice buildup. A Royal DeLuxe Setson Stratoliner was my hat choice.

I started the grill for some brunch and was under the brim of a Gannon Wanderer (silvermist beaver felt with charcoal trimmings).
