  3. I never knew anyone on their deathbed say, "I wish I hadn't spent all that money & had such a good time."

    I rather like what Augustus McRae said in Lonesome Dove, when it came to mind most recently, "By God, Woodrow, it's been quite a party, ain't it?"

    Indeed it is. And thank you for the heads up on it. It does have a “pillowy” crown, much the difference to the 50 but every bit well finished. Impressed the heck-outta-me.

    Looks almost like my new one, Brent. I'm sending mine to Rick for some upgrades.

    Is the hand rough, or are they smooth to hold?
    I've been sour on wool, but then been very impressed by some merino western "cowboy" hats.

    Hey all!
    Been a while. Thought I'd drop in and say hi. :)
    All the nice Panamas and other straws on parade in the last few days reminded me that I have this Optimo Superfino. And that I should wear it and share it!

    And if I photograph it just right you can't see the big crack in the brim...
    Have a great day!

    Absolutely gorgeous hat, John. The weave is incredible; a repaired tear wouldn’t deter me from wearing it either.

    Posted in the modern Stratoliner thread too. Not sure why it says "The Temple" on sweat instead of having saying "Stratoliner" and having the jet logo like my other one. Not sure how old this one is, might be an outlet hat but no hole punched in sweat. I has a 2.5" brim like modern strats do (my other Sand colored hemp strat has more like a 2 3/4" or 2 7/8" brim.)

    The change of weather has finally arrived over the weekend
    Patron 2.jpg
    The temperatures stabilized on the Italian summer values between 30 and 31 Celsius degrees (around 86 fahrenheit)
    during the central hours of the day

    Today, early in the morning, I walked to take advantage of the fresh air and watch the world wake up with a PHD on the head

    My best compliments for all the hats I saw in these weeks and I haven't commented.
    Thanks a lot for you likes and kind words on my rare appearances on the FL

    Great to see@moehawk on the board. Hi, John!

    Temps have cooled off a bit. This unlined Playboy is perfect for the day.

    Should you ever consider putting in a liner ...

    The "Gloria" has a soft hand and the "Bellona" has some roughness. Both Hats are 1930s or older and in this time men's Wool Soft and Stiff Felt Hats dominated the German market (same with other European countries) unlike America where Fur Felt dominated the men's market.

    Thanks!

    Starting to catch up on hundreds and hundreds of posts I’ve missed, and they are all amazing, and have an inspiring variety! Incredible contributions, everyone.
    And the shirts too! From cats to Hawaiian, to Rush... great way to spend a Tuesday morning.
