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).

Now there's a hat I'd like to find in my size! What a thing; spectacular, Steve.

A busy day for internet work (I’ve had an internet job for 15 years). I’ve been hanging out at home with the other JBS 7X - the 70s or 80s non clear beaver one. I really like this hat!

RIP Liam Devlin - I mean Donald Sutherland. I might try to find the extended version of “The Eagle Has Landed” to watch tonight. It’s my birthday so it’s my choice of movies (what am I saying, I live alone! :D ).
