Picked up a Borsalino Fedora a couple of days ago for a super price. Completely unexpectedly, it was spot on in fit. I might have to tell the girls at the shop to make sure the "sweet little lady" who brought it in knows that if she brings in more, they won't just get worn by a hipster and abandoned in a couple of years when they aren't hip anymore. Anyway, there are plenty of cheap wool hats for those guys to wear! Here it is after a little love from my local hatter (The Brass Rooster, for those of you near Milwaukee who didn't know that we had an honest to goodness hat shop, not just a retailer!)
On an unrelated note - and not directed at any specific post, just at a tendency I've been noticing lately:
I'd like to recommend to anyone who has found SF through this thread that you branch out and read some of the rest of the forum as well. There is a ton of information (and gibberish - you have to sift), and if you care about clothes, you can learn a lot from reading some of it. I've pointed out before that this thread is becoming a subculture, and I'm fine with that. I don't think it should become so parochial that folks here don't venture outside of this thread to find answers and information. I'm not trying to defend the "purity of the thread." I'm just pointing out that some of the discussion simply duplicates what is already on the forum, thus, it simply triples the number of posts we all have to wade through.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
