    Beaver fur felt has a tendency to hold its shape in humid climates. My new Northwest Hats "Whippet" is being made from beaver fur felt.

    I want the black beaver fur bowler because the bowler has been my "signature" hat since 1975. It may look out of place in a small town, but the bowler comes across as a bit "dressier" than the fedora hat. I live in a small town 28.75 miles away from a major population center in the Pacific Northwest.

    Ball caps and half-rotted teeth are de rigueur in this little burg. While there are educated people in this community, a well-dressed person stands out like a sore thumb.

    I was online today and purchased a "vintage" Royal Stetson, brown, "V" dent, fedora with a 1.75"(?) brim and a 5-inch tall crown. I paid $14.95 + 9.25 shipping. (Personally, I think that I scored)!

    This is a beautiful old hat of good quality that will enhance my collection.
