Any ideas on that hat origin? I researched it like mad but found it tough to trace.
Cav 100 I've been dry creasing into something other than the cattleman, just for fun.
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.
Bet your fingers had a nice day!
Happy birthday, Justin.
I do that with one of my Steson 100s. I think that particular hat looks better that way.
Mallory XV, first wear of the year.
Hot damn! now that’s a Open Road. Looking sharp. Makes me want one.
Wear it in good health.
That’s a looker!

Michael, Thank you! Great look from you yesterday with the Jonathon Richard Irish Tweed Newsboy!
Great pic in the soft lighting.

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.
ANNOUNCEMENT: By my count, next Wednesday, April 10, is the 100th day of the year. So, based on the power vested in me by the [insert a reputable organization name here], I hereby decree next Wednesday as Wear Your One Hundred Day, 2019. Of course, I hope you will show off your One Hundreds here on the Lounge too, so mark your calendars!!!
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."
Best, Eric -
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.
