    The shape is wonderful, but it’s the color that took my breath away. Wowsers!

    I just dislike the waiting around, the lines, the showing of documents and the attitude of some of the people who check them.
    The flight itself I still marvel at.

    Yes, and it's too bad it appears those open crowns have been discontinued.

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

    A day late, so "what was I wearing yesterday"; the first in my nine-hat-haul from last week. A new-to-me medium gray 50's Dobbs with a slate/purple ribbon. This hat looks much darker inside. The fit and finish are very nice; like I've been wearing this my whole life. Brent @deadlyhandsome let me keep this one for it's next story in life.

    It does breathe well and I don’t feel compelled to be careful with it.

    A two-hat day. My special hat; it is very smooth and firm but I've always had trouble getting it to look like a fedora. It is a vintage lid, however, as you'll notice the '57 Chevy fins on the back.

    I’m suprised this is your first long hair hat Eric.
    Most excellent! It looks like a long haired Railbird to me!

    Oh my Alan!
    Now this is a hat, a hat of distinction.
    Disney made such fine hats. And a Forty Class! Magnificent in all categories.
    Thanks

    Thanks. The hat wears well. I still at the glancing at the reflection stage of acceptance with this hat.

    Yes, first long hair here. (Now before talk begins, in my youth I did have hair and even on occasion long hair on my head. No more. I do not fear hair.) I have not seen long haired hats in my estate sales, antique shop, vintage shop or surplus shops of any size in my neck of the woods. For some time I have been appreciating the longer felted hats shown on the comparison thread and on this thread. I am pleased to have this hat at home and have the opportunity to experience it. More of them.....we will see. You can never have too many hats.
