    Not true, Fred. I care. You looked very nice. I've been meaning also to compliment your single-button suits. Should I ever ascend to the fruited plains of bespoke, I plan to employ that same configuration.

    We care. But we want more office angles, more lampshade-on-head shots, more outtakes.
    In fact, you can feel free to turn this thread into your own personal tumblr if you like; it will raise the bar significantly.
    Three cheers for Fred [​IMG]

    I understand everyones thoughts as this one is quite larger than all my other fedoras and the crown much much fuller. Usually my hats are a 2 1/2-2 5/8 brim. This is 2 3/4 and almost 6 inches in an open crown. I usually wear a 5 3/4 max open crown. The people have a good eye to notice this hat is considerbly larger than my other hats. I just have to say I like this one by far the best! I just got it 5 days ago, and I feel like like a king in it. I have never found hat I felt so comfortable and happy in. The hat is from the 30's or 40's and it is in Mint immaculate condition. Not a single flaw. The felt is beaver and it has a mode edge "cav edge" folded over with no stitching (a lost art). This hat is about as nice as they come and was a very high end hat even for its time. I appriceate the meticulous eyes on this forum to notice this is the first time I posted a picture of this hat. This is my dream hat and will be my life long daily hat.

    I saw it. Very nice. But the shoulders look awfully wide on that coat. Is it the pose?


    No comments = not bad, but not good enough. Try better pictures.

    Not everyone can generate the murmuration of responses which Achillus' pic has inspired.

    No the thing is, you are a failure who still wear diapers. That might be the reason for your obsession. I outreach you on everything. But even when you are pretending for having me on your blocklist, you still answer. Speaking about irony. I feel your pain silly lass.

    Wow, that really means a lot to me. Thank you so much! That is very kind and open minded of you. :) Men my size or even slightly smaller wore hats like this commonly. I think the perception of aesthetics constantly changes and will continue to. Generally speaking, hats before the War were much more pronounced in there boldness than after the War.

    Stetson. The logo is very small and in black and white. It says Stetson and above that it says "The Sovereign."

    Should you ever find yourself in DFW, I would highly recommend you make a trip to Peter's Bros. in Fort Worth.
