    Here is one of the first hats produced by my hat company Engel & Co. Hatters. It is a lightweight regal Blue-Grey colour Fedora made from 100% Beaver Fur, produced from just the belly fur of the beaver. It is 110 Grams in weight. The dimensions are 6 inches in an Open Crown, and is 5 1/4 when creased into a teardrop crown with reverse taper (Flared Crown). The brim is 2 5/8 in a raw edge. The black ribbon is 2 inches tall.

    I have plans to. It might take me up to a decade from now to make the idea a reality.

    Great looking lid, Tibor. Good luck with the biz. We can never have enough good hatters.

    Out of interest uncle:

    1. How many hats do you have?

    2. What is your profession?

    Very nice tree you have there, DW. A lid for every day of the week. Gotta fill those empty branches.;)
