    Happy Birthday!

    Any ideas on that hat origin? I researched it like mad but found it tough to trace.

    Thanks Stefan. It has a few bug chews, but it did clean up pretty nicely.

    Dang, I like that hat. Very unique look there.

    That is a really beautiful velour on that one, Steve. A great shape to it, too. Great hat.

    Thanks, B. It is fun playing with the ones you don't have to steam to get them to move.

    Thank you, Michael. I wish my Stetson 100 could be manipulated this way but it's one of the stiffer ones. I'm gonna leave this one as is for awhile.

    Thank you, Eric. It's all a direct result of the treatments on your charcoal Gannon. I shamelessly copied it.

    Thanks, Stefan. This hat was made exactly to my specs as a 2 3/4 X 5 3/4 snap brim with a fairly deep flange. I put a diamond crease in it but was never quite satisfied with the shape of the hat and the brim was quite floppy and I stopped wearing it. I finally opened the crown up and ironed the brim flat. With the help of steam, my spritz bottle and the edge of a 5 gal. Home Depot bucket, using my fingers I put a slight curl in the brim, which gave it more stability and the resulting shape. It cost me a little in brim width, down to 2 5/8 but with the center crease I put in it, it's much more wearable to me now.

    Many years ago I bought a Stetson Whippet. It was inexpensive and made in Australia. I was very excited to have a venerable Whippet on my hat rack. Weeks later it finally arrived in a flat pack. Squished flat into the envelope I found the brown hat pictured below. A licensed Stetson Whippet trilby made in Australia. Not my fav look, but certainly a one of a kind!

    Out later moving leaves in a vtg. Stetson Stratoliner. I appreciate the 2 7/8" brim for wind and blowing leaf protection. This "yard hat" sees hard work and it continues to be ready to go to "town."

    Nice hats, Eric. My SB Strat sees a lot of head time as well. I've also seen a few Whippet trilby's on eBay recently. Maybe there is a trend.
