    Mac, you'll have to walk me through a couple of hat purchases. Admire all of yours!

    My first visit to Australia was for the America's Cup in '87. Our hosts were very gracious but I had a little trouble following their conversations, and that was before the alcohol started flowing. After a few rounds of pints it might just as well been Sanskrit . :crazy:

    Still, a great country with lovely people. :)

    Magill high crown, raw brim fedora. I picked it up for $4 at Value Village in March, looking like this:

    I steamed it and reshaped it using two bowls, a ladle, an ovoid casserole dish, and a pyrex measuring cup as forms. I hated that band so I took it off, and I've just now, finally, gotten around to replacing it. I made the new band myself, not half an hour ago. :cool:

    You did a good job on that refurb, ITG. The lid suits you.
