Snap a pic with your phone, tells you the color. Currently madly in love with it.

I don't understand how all the swd dudes afford all their shit most of them look like they are 19 and they are wearing like 2000 worth of gear. I probably shouldn't be talking but at least most my shit is thrifted I doubt they found their Rick dunks at goodwill... I love swd but shit is too exclusive for me I only have 2 pairs of selvage a pair of common projects and a few drapery knits and bomber jackets I don't want to post in that thread unless I am wearing head to toe black gauze and a gold chain so I can look like some sort of demented a$ap fanboy. Anyway I dress way too preppy most of the time to he cool, like right now I am wearing a baracuta g9 a v neck sweater some apcs and Clark's *sigh* if only I could stunt as hard as the swd cats

Nothing for me today, just one vintage hat. I know some of you guys dig this stuff so maybe you can help me gauge if it was money wasted? I can't seem to tell what it's made of but it seems in great shape to my uninitiated eyes.

Cavanagh made nice hats, but that thing is fugly. Won't be much of a market for it, IMO. Longhair finishes were never very many people's cup of tea, and that's a later '60s/'70s one when they were essentially novelty items.

Aww bugger, that shows my knowledge! I figured the longhair might be more exotic as I never see them around, clearly I don't see them for the opposite reason. Oh well, I can make the pin into a lapel decoration I suppose when I really need to peacock.

As a bald guy, I'd rock the shit out of it if it was a size 8....just to feel like I had hair again.

Sorry, but unless you paid nothing--and even then--you wasted your money. There is a reason why it appears that no one ever wore that hat.

Found these same ones in a slightly different shade about a month ago that were 1/2 size too small for me (10D) in much worse shape. So tempted but I'm trying to clear out some shoes right now instead of buying more.

With GMMcL otherwise engaged, there's been an absence of thrift fit pics...what's happened to Org and easye?

Anyway, it's a bright day today, if not truly spring-like, so I did this. As Greg would say, I regret nothing, except that the temperature required socks.
