    A simple Czech with a fuzzy finish.

    That's a very nice colour, Dennis. I like the simple bow design too; very understated.

    I like that better than the Calvino color. An even lighter color!

    Thanks Dennis... the modest dimensions create a shape that reminds me of the style you have worn for years.

    That's a nice one, Daniele. I really favor the thin ribbons.

    Alan, you've got me figured out. I do like modest moderate hats and furnishings. It amazes me that you remember my posts. My memory seems to be fading. I do remember you as having lots of style and pizzazz. I have been away for several years as I acclimated toward the Florida climate.......... Hey, did I see you on TV the other day? I could have sworn it was you wearing a hat.

    Alan, I know this one. :) BilCal (Bill & Caldwell) were well known importers so not sure if there was a store. My guess is the branding was for America but the hats were redirected to the Czech market.
