So, I have been looking for a bowler hat for the last couple of years. Long before my SF days and knowing what quality stuff was, I purchased one off ebay only to have it arrive as a cheap throw away party hat. Fast forward to last week when thriftydood posted that amazing hat haul. Low and behold, what did I see? Just what I had been looking for, a vintage bowler made by a great company in fantastic condition. There were some back and forth between us when I realized I didn't have anything to trade Mr. thriftydood at the moment (he is a rather difficult size for finding in the thrifts). So he said he would send me the hat for future consideration. Awesome I thought, this guy is pretty cool. Then he says he noticed that I like knit ties and would I like him to send a few with the hat, as he bought some awhile ago but realized he doesn't like knit ties that much. Sure, I says, send them on over. Well, the package arrived last night and I was blown away to say the least. Not only was the hat impeccable, but he sent me, not 1
But this many.
Some whose styles I have never seen before. Amazing!!!!
And here's the bowler.
Seriously thriftydood, you are the man!
