    What these very modern light weight felt Borsalinos lack in terms of the Borsalino quality of yore, they make up in terms of funky fun to wear. Had me some fun wearing it today.

    Thanks again to Brent for sending this one my way.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Tonak "Triumf" possibly late 1940s. I believe this hat is made of Wool. It's from my NOS Czech find of June 2015. I am not sure the source because all hat companies were combined as Tonak and my guess is that stock (hoods, capelines, semi finished hats, finished hats) was moved from closed companies and branded as Tonak.

    It also has a canvas sweatband. This was somewhat common in the wartime era.

    Tonak / Janyška & Cie from right after WWII. This is an example of a bulk shipping container that was common in Europe going back to late 19th Century. Janyška & Cie is using the nationalized name Tonak. This box is from the same June 2015 Czech NOS find and it's possible the above hat was sent in this box from Tonak / Janyška & Cie in the late 1940s.

    First time wearing this Carlton Club loose weave straw. It arrived crumpled but was easily rectified with steam. It needs a cleaning but overall pretty nice. The open weave on the brim put me off a bit. The sun shines right through. I may end up putting this in the classifieds. I’ll have to give it a couple of wears to see if it’s a keeper.

    Hey all!
    It was this Homero Ortega Cuenca, my first Panama, that started me down the path to finer and nicer straws. Still a good hat for humid, hot days with it's cloth sweat and not-so-tight weave. Seen here after the marine layer has (thankfully) come in to cool us off.

    Yesterday it was the John Batterson. Much greener in person than these early evening pics would have you believe.

    Have a great day!

    Well, guys, gals and platter pals, it seems we made it to Thursday. Thin Ribbon Thursday, even.

    Venturing out in the morning rain under a hat from an independent. This is the Glenburnie.

    I'm about to be wearing a new Boss of the Plains. Went to the Stetson Factory outlet store yesterday to have some blocking done on one of my O'Farrell's and found a Pecan colored BOTP in my size, perfect fit.
    So I laid it on a stack of hat boxes near the steaming station and when it came time to leave I totally forgot about it and left it laying there.

    Going back today to bring it home. They had two of them so hopefully there wasn't a 'run' on BOTP's in my size yesterday! :)
