    Which Akubra straw model is this? I've seen them before and coveted it greatly. It is good to start thinking about straws in January to ward off the winter blues. Very nice.

    I like it, bring a few back for the rest of us. Yes, the Ortega back room would be heaven, or hell for your wallet!

    Thanks, Charlie. I'm not much of a cap guy, but that one looks soft and comfy.

    Thanks, Mike. It certainly was a big get for me. Of course, I want another one.

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

    C.G. Wilke "Flamand" possibly late 1920s. A high degree brim flange on this one.

    Love the shape of this historic Wilke. Freiburg is a wonderful place I am told. We have family that lives there. The wife's aunt and uncle visit frequently.

    So crazy soft looking Brent. The crown taper works with this one, gives it a period look that is classic.

    We received a delivery of 6000 pounds of new flooring last night. Had to try out a few boards to see the future. Out for a couple of errands in my Royal Deluxe Stetson from the late 1950s today. A little too light of a hat on a breezy day! 7Jan19 Flooring Load In 550x.jpg 8Jan19 Test floor planks 450x.jpg 8Jan19 Stetson front 450x.jpg 8Jan19 Stetson crease side 450x.jpg

    Stetson One Hundred today. You can still see the breakline from when I had it downsized from 7 1/2 to 58.5. The mark is only about 1/8th of an inch wide.
    I asked Ignacio to add a little more to the brim width on purpose.
    No such mark exists on the others I downsized, because I didn't ask him to add to the brim.
    The yellow measuring tape is before the downsizing.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I've sold 5 hats over the last few days so had to make a trip to the Post Office. Used that for an excuse for the wife and I to go out to dinner. Stetson Royal DeLuxe from the 40s got the nod today. Love this camel color felt and copper ribbon.

    I like the parallel crown lines and the crown height, too. Man, my tastes have changed since I started with my addiction.
    I hope I don't start liking derbys and westerns. It will get a whole lot more expensive.

    If you're worried about derbys and westerns then how about this New Years resolution --> 2019, year of the leather jacket(s)? Bowen can help you out there too. Highly recommended. He did a bang up job helping me. ;)
