What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

We habe a very unique type of thrift store here called Good Will Outlet World. It's a massive warehouse and everything is in wheeled carts/tubs that are about 5'x0'. There are 8 or nine rows of them, about 10 tubs long. Everything is just piled in them, and you go dig around. Picture dumpster diving!
Most things you pay $1.29/# for, but glass is cheaper and heavy items top out at $8 or $5.
Every once in a while they roll two rows of the carts out and bring in replacements. An official yells at everyone to stay back, then allows them to line up along the carts, then shouts "shop!"
Picture one of those scenes from a third world dump.

You never know what you'll find there. I have found a couple of decent Westerns.
Today I happened to find a Red Army hat.
Note that it seems to be size 59. It fits like a 57.
I've heard they used to send extra large condoms to the West marked S. This propaganda is puzzling.

I like the hat a lot. It piques my curiosity to source one sized for myself, a short bald fellow. Of course the bar pics are more accurate - when are not pics and opinions not better or more accurate than at a bar with a fav beverage. Thanks for sharing the hat.
Eric, I think you would look good with an original crease on an OR, or one of the blocked 3x6's.

And remember, you judge the true worth & character of a man by the way he swirls the whiskey in his glass.

Your silvermist pics always look good against the blue spruce trees.

Jack; How about this 7X in a cattleman's crease? I wear the hat around my wife's horse friends. Glad you enjoy the silvermist pics.
