Headed uptown for some groceries and a PO stop. A Wormser I’ll also be selling to that guy who’ll fit it better than me. 7 1/8 hats make me ill. :) too small, but only by a little.

C. G. Wilke "Flamand", blind stitch over welt, possibly late 1920s early 1930s. Has all the original parts including the tip patch. Really fantastic / unique felt with a lot of Brim flange. "Flamand" is in unshorn Velour. It's actually light in weight. I found this "Flamand" back in 2014.

The hat shop (Reinhold Mette Freiberg) was established in 1926 and is still owned by the family today (Barbara Mette Freiberg). I assume the shop is still in business. Prior to opening the hat shop they manufactured fur felt ware (established 1825).

Gonna be another HOT one here today so I decided to break out one of my summer hats. Knox Excellent Quality woven weave in Brown with a puggaree hatband. Not quite the silhouette I usually like to wear but this guy's gotta have a little diversity every now and then.lol.
