TONAK "Lestand" probably mid to later 1950s. Really like the color combo and the form. This Soft Felt is from my May 2016 NOS Czech Find.

My May, 2016 NOS Stock Find. There were 20 hats (Brüder Böhm, J. Hückel´s Söhne, TONAK, Janyška) and 4 hat holders (Anton Peschel Neutitschein, Brüder Böhm, Janyška). All of the hats were NOS open crown and range from the later 1930s to late 1950s. Including a couple rare Brüder Böhm Soft Felt Wool hats and a Brüder Böhm hat holder.

Janyška & Cie. was started in the 1920s in Valašské Meziříčí – Krásno about 25 km from Nový Jičín / Neutitschein where J. Hückel´s Söhne, Brüder Böhm, and A. Peschel Neutitschein were located.

We had visitors from Australia staying with us on Sunday night. I took Monday off also to spend time with these great friends.
On Sunday, I went for my Silverbelly Campdraft

Apologies to Stefan for failing to get yakitori pictures.
On Monday, we went to a restaurant at a fish market. I got one last wear from my Stetson Custom V.

Back to work today, and for my first straw day of the year, I went with my Stratoliner PB.

Looks like a great time and we really should forget pictures when having fun.

The Penumbra panama. It's so right for the weather and it tops of your perfect 'Sunday Best' appearance with style, I love it.

So sorry about that eye infection Stefan, it's always so difficult not to touch or rub it, I do hope that it clears up quickly.

We are off to church shortly, I will show you which hat I have chosen for today's service when we get home later.
