    The brim of the hat folds in and the hat appears like a slightly open clam shell. I keep this hat in the box as the felt is malleable and will flatten out when out of the box. I do like the brim snap and fedora swoop to my Strats. We only have to look to Alan for inspiration for wearing a hat with curved side brim.

    I was reading thru the Stratoliner threads this morning to see if I could identify when the "clamshell" boxes were stopped being distributed by Stetson and could not find info. I am not sure if 50's and 60's Stratoliners came in a like box.

    Thank you, Michael. It's a bit heavy on the shellac, but still works.

    I'm in the north Austin area and was in Wimberly the other day where that shot was taken. Yes, loved the cool mornings these last few days. ;)

I’d been debating having it touched up with a new ribbon...but I think I rather like it as is. Haven’t fully decided.

    Thanks Eric. Yes, it's muggy here and was already over 70 when I got up at 6. Sounds like this week is going to get back to the cool mornings after tonight. That will be nice. I like felt hat mornings and straw hat afternoons. Ha ha.

    Thanks for the info Eric. I was very sad when I opened up that box at the thrift store and there was no hat in it. Because the first box I opened there that day did have a hat in it. Oh well. I pretty much couldn't resist the box in any case. Now if a Stratoliner would just show up I'd be prepared.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Could not resist showcasing a pic of Alan with his notable curved brim style. I tip the brim of my hat in his direction this morning for style.

    Thanks for the link to the box thread, Eric. And the photo of Alan's hat with fenders. That is quite a swoop. I might have to try storing a different hat of the same dimensions in the box, just to see the effect.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    We took our MG along to a classic car show today. Given the glorious weather it was shirt sleeve order, so how could I not wear my MG shirt?

    What you can't see very clearly are the MG buttons that my missus made from lapel pins.

    As always, I need to digress a little. For a long time I've been after a Stratoliner, but whether it's a felt or straw, I do want the Strat pin on the hatband. They are easily available in the US, but shipping charges and added import duty make that an expensive option. So I'm just keeping an eye out at festivals and elsewhere. It's the pin that I want, Esther made a fabulous Strat clone.
    I was think about that this morning, when my wife said, "Penny for your thoughts." I told her about the pin. As we were leaving she handed me my Biltmore. Stratoliner, who needs a Stratoliner?

    I'm heading to the Mile High Flea Market to evaluate the prospects of a weekend hat store. I cant seem to choose between the Stratoliner and stingy Borsalino for the morning, but the Stetson straw is going for the afternoon.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have one of these Mayser Panama hats with a blue ribbon, and like it very much. The adhesive reinforced crown at the pinch makes it a bit more sturdy, so I sometimes wear it to the beach.

    They're sturdy straws. A blue ribbon sounds nice.
    I think I have too many clothes on for the beaches you frequent, Jonesy [emoji4]

    The Adam is killer. Are the ribbons original?

    Yes. Below is a pic I took long ago of a stack of light hued Adam hats. (Edit: I believe their is a Lee hat in the stack if my memory is not failing.) I have dark hues but need a family shot. :eek:

    As always Eric, some super hats there of various hues and eye catching ribbons.

    Another object that caught my eye is that fantastic print in the background. Bing Crosby promoting Stetson Whippets. Wow! Where did you pick that up?
