People, I believe I asked before, but I never received a satisfactory answer.

Please recommend had racks that work for fedoras. (Most hat racks don’t have enough space between the page to allow for full brims.)

Thanks in advance!

Cross post from another thread, my Akubra Homburg. I definitely love it and, even with the greedy customs' fee, still much cheaper than an equivalent European one (except Christy's maybe - about which later ...)

A fabulous hat, Luigi. With every good wish, Munky
A nice old Christy’s from 1980’s. Still going strong.View attachment 1509502
I have 8 Christy's hats and one is very similar to yours. A bit disappointed though that I got caught in a recent rain storm and the brim has completely lost it's shape. It is a fur and not a woollen one. Has anyone got experience of using steam to reshape hats? With best wishes, Munky

I realize that, in a try to emulate your wit, I became pompous.
You won again!

I take my hat off to you, sir! Seriously, Luigi, that is a beautiful hat and you wear it well. Regards, M.

Here is one of my very pleasant Christy's fedoras. It worries me that Christy's seem to put the apostrophe in the wrong place: Christys'. Life is so complicated, sometimes. With best wishes, Munky.

I like that color a lot. Maybe because the place is the possession of multiple Christies that are partial to the "y" spelling, rather than a singular Christy? I mean, we can't have them being Christys's.

Thanks, Madhat. It is a nice colour but I have to be feeling fairly extrovert to wear it. The Christiey's's issue is still a worry. Regards, Munky.
