Cold and windy as hell. The public debut of the Knox Westlite I found last Friday.

This one sports some unfortunate moth bites at the crown just beneath the bow, but hey, I don't care.

Knox Westlite and the Unfortunate Moth Bites is the name of my Echo & the Bunnymen cover band.

Sent directly from my mind to yours.
Very nice, Jim. Knox Westlites are great hats.

I took one of the last chances to wear one of the hairy hats I had forgotten in the cold.
Accomplice a windy day, sometimes cold, the Borsalino has also made its appearance
View attachment 156455
Borsalino Qualità Extra Superiore size 6 1/2 or 60 cm. / 1/2 US
View attachment 156456
The color is "Argento", no mention of the type
View attachment 156458
The felt of the hat is extraordinary, soft, malleable and with a fantastic touch. The color is in the tradition of Borsalino: ice white with a slight gray tone, the ribbon is blue
View attachment 156459
The interior is in blue satin with gold lettering

For this winter, except for unforeseen events, hats with long or medium hair will return to sleep in their lodgings.
Happy Thursday!
An immense thank you for your appreciation
There's longhair and there's longhair! Another beauty, Daniele. I love Borsalino's argento colour.

Straight outta the box today.
Hornskov from Copenhagen.
A little bit Charles Russell,
A little bit boss of the Plains,
A lot of weird and wonderful, and I know it’s unusual but I’m pretty delighted at this one so far. 50% beaver body, sorta sugarloaf crown and nicely executed raw pencil curl.

That is a cool hat. Nice work on the brim curl indeed; a rarity on a modern hat.

No not really, though I do have a shelf where all the hats (mostly derbies) are black. I have no clear system of organization. The time it takes to look for something is usually rewarded by finding something I'd forgotten that I had.
Hey, that sounds exactly like my own "non-system". Very satisfying looking for a hat and experiencing several "ah, yes" moments.
