    It's a sport coat (with jeans).

    I'm really into this and seeing how it plays out. I've been waiting for somebody to experiment with dressier western hats.

    Great hat, but I'd like the details on the jacket, please!

    100% Wool, there are no marks of fabric maker, feels like tweed.

    I may happen to have a length of just this cloth or something very similar at least:

    Does this come anywhere close?

    Ah yes. Different shades and structure. Thank you for taking the extra picture.
    Still, I might use your pictures as inspiration for when the time comes to fund mine. :)

    Now back to hats ...

    Great pic.
    I used to have a mental block about brown but it’s creeping into my wardrobe more and more. Paired up with blue, as you’ve done here, makes for a great combination. Hat looks spot on!

    That is a nice hat. The wrinkled sweatband likely will go back in shape if the stuff they put behind to size it is gone and it is dampened and put on a hat stretcher. Not a full blown metal thing but one of those plastic ones used to keep shape against that tendency for leather to shrink when you wear one and get it sweat dampened.

    Keep in mind that a new 100% beaver with some style/design choices of your own is available from Northwest hats (https://www.northwesthats.com/) or Gannon Hat company (https://gannonhatcompany.com/) for under $400. That is a near stingy width brim and looks like a shorter tapered crown. You might think you look better in something less towards a Trilby and more like a mid century larger fedora.

    Its listed at 175, I read something back from 06 about Borsalino hats not being as good as they used to be. But 13 years is plenty of time to improve quality. Wasnt sure if they have gotten better. Also wasnt sure if is indeed pure beaver as listed.
