Did my first test run of a ribbon edge binding today but I love the stitched brims. Ive got a little Akubra Metropolitan that has a triple stitching that I love. Ive got a couple of raw edge fleabay hats that I may try it on myself

My morning shenanigans on a Whippet Wednesday started early. A Stetson Whippet in a blue felt was my soirée fedora.

I enjoyed coffee wearing "The Brock." This 30-40's hat was made by the Wolthausen Hat Corp, Canadian factory in Brockville, Ontario, Canada. (When Stetson bought out the Wolthausen Hat Corp. in Ontario in 1935, the newspapers announced their plans to make 4 lines of hats at the Canadian factory: Stetson, Brock, Kensington and Horton.)

The blueish felt brim has a terrific treatment.

I completed some yard work while under the brim of a Gannon Playboy in bluemist (an Art Fawcet, VS hat, special felt acquired via Winchester).

Straw Hat Day - Panama Hats Direct

This hat… As I was made aware by a member of another group… was designed to replicate the Optimo styled Panama worn by The Fifth Doctor in the Dr Who? Series.

I am enjoying a VS (Vintage Silhouette) fedora morning. It rained last night and when I brush against the evergreens or trees I get wet and "pollen" rains down on my hat.

A walkabout in a VS fedora in green moss. This hat was inspired by a Stetson Whippet. The felt is as luscious as can be.

A VS in silvermist was my fedora for morning coffee. This hat was inspired by the Stetson Westin. The Westin was a Whippet with a different edge treatment. The felt is an Artlite silvermist felt.

I did a couple yard chores in a different VS fedora. The rain yesterday has greened up my grass. This dove (gray) felted hat was inspired by a Stetson Stratoliner. The contrast ribbon is a charcoal hue that is sharp against the light dove felt.
