    Thanks Perry. And right back attcha. The way the binding and ribbon stands out against the felt in the Huckel is just brilliant. And great sweater too.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Good morning folks. Terrific hat/cap/beret parade the last few days.

    End of last week I flew to Chicago, IL for work. I made time to be able to spend several hours at the Art Institute. Glorious opportunity that I heartily recommend.

    I traveled with a couple of caps as my schedule and the windy cold weather dictated.

    For our many Forum members who are avid western history buffs I am confident that you too will appreciate the bronze statue called Bronco Buster, by Remington.

    Duck Dim Song was on the menu for lunch one of the days.

    Arriving home yesterday found me hiking in the snow for some coffee in yet another cap (Monsavais).

    This morning I took the dog for a snowshoe walk wearing a vintage Stetson Vita Felt. The model is still unknown to me. The Vita Felt is glorious clay like when you need to put a crease in the open crown hat. The unique ribbon feature, binding, blocking and flange are unlike other hats I have.

    Shortly ago I was removing more snow in a Gannon fedora.

    I have been enjoying the head gear parade.

    All of our snow melted away with the rain last night. So much for my (in)AccuWeather App.

    Royal Stetson today.

    It is gorgeous, Max. These old craftsmen could probably turn a pinguin into an incredible hat.

    Eric, nice hats and caps and artwork, as well. I was antiquing this past Friday and came across these beauties.

    These were the largest ones I'd ever seen outside of a museum. It's common to see the desktop models, but these came up to my mid chest. I'm 6' tall.

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

    Dang, Jim those are something. I'd would have been in trouble when I came home with one of those. I can hear HER now. Too big for the boots and hats room.

    @Short Balding Guy, thanks for the Remington pic.
