Harris Tweed Flat Cap 8 Piece Newsboy by Failsworth. I'd like to find another with a leather sweatband, but this is a good hat.

Back in civilization from the Texas wilderness.

I was able to sail right through Customs with my 42-hat booty, and am now on my way home from the airport to unfurl my tightly packed hats.

The pics are of Juan Carlos, Ana's brother, Silvia, his girlfriend, and her 4 year-old grandson, Ashten. Cute as a button, that kid is. Half Tibetan, half Mexican. Quite a combo, and a hybrid vigour demo.

Ana is wearing my new to me Churchill 100, I'm in my Knox, and Ashten doesn't know better than wearing a baseball cap yet, but I mean to educate him ASAP.

The next haul may result in the first full hat transport charter flight in aviation history! Work to do, Max! Great pics.

Thanks Doug. Love that blue Disney you are wearing today.

Thanks Stefan. That's me, like to stay in the background.

I really really like that color combo.

Thanks Dm101. I think the vent holes are original. It's a National Park Service uniform hat from the 50s or perhaps early 60s. Not sure exactly when Stetson stopped making Nutria Quality hats. You did a good job on reshaping the brim on your Resistol. Looks good.

Thanks Bowen. I got lucky with this hat. Nobody but me wanted it when it came up for auction. I've been wearing this coat a lot this winter.

Thanks Jeff. Great Optimo for you today. I've been out shoveling twice today. I'm hoping it will quit snowing soon. Fortunately it's light and fluffy. And looks so nice.

Thanks all,
Michael
Thanks, Michael. So do I actually. There's a guy in Mexico who thinks I don't like green hats; silly idea!

I agree. Over time I have drifted to the flatter, broader brimmed fedoras. If this trend continues, soon I will be in the western hat brim arena.



Thanks Perry. Your hat, shirt, tie, sweater combos have been killing it lately.

This morning I was outside stacking wood in a Gannon fedora (granite and charcoal trimmings).

One more day of floor construction, then painting of the bedrooms the rest of the week. We should be able to move back in over the weekend. It has been quite an experience, and we didn't even have to tear down any walls for this remodel. Another large load going to Goodwill this morning, wearing a grab-and-go Resistol 880 from the late 1950s.

Excellent hat, Mike. Hang in there for a little while longer!
