Here's a black Borsalino that I refurbished and blocked a couple sizes bigger. A fellow Lounger gifted this one to to me a couple or so years ago...

Before:

On the block, and a before and after open crown comparison:

After: I reused the original ribbon and bow...

Very nice Terry. Giving off Stetson Playboy vibes in its new blocking

You know with a name like Jones you've got to have Welsh ancestry. If the itch to trace your British/Welsh ancestary is in your DNA do let me know. You can stay at my place, just as long as you bring along your hat blocks et al! What an artiste you are!

Ha! Thank you buddy! I'm definitely of Welsh and British stock, as well as Norman ancestry. I was actually born in Ruiclip. I've always wanted to visit Isles someday. When I do, I'll be sure to look you up, and I'll bring along my hat blocks!

Well I might just hold you to that, further more, your carriage will definitely be worthy of both your talent and your birthright. Ruislip? Who would have guessed?

I took a tour on 19th, 18th, and 16th century vessels today. Then went to smoke a cigar at a Pipe Musuem in Old Town, and a drink at the pub. I wore my Bicorne I made from 50% Beaver and 50% Nutria, felted by Winchester Hat Corp. I will make a 100% beaver bicorne next with a taller "Fan" from Fepsa felts.

It's still early, but I'm calling it. Hat of the day!
