    $36 during the Cyber Monday sale. It's this one: http://www.thecorner.com/us/men/hat_cod46226505nn.html

    Maybe a little darker and bluer in person, but it depends on the lighting and your monitor settings, I guess.

    I completely understand, it's a thoroughly male approach to clothing. Men like specifications and beasting on numbers, factoids, etc. That's why we have successful professional sports industries, consumer technology, etc, That it has trickled into high fashion, it's admittedly kind of weird, but yeah understandable at this point.
    As a maker of clothing, I wish it wasn't so hardcore sometimes, I mean, like the zipper discussions - really not as big of a deal as it's made out to be, but I am just as guilty as others sometimes when it comes to this stuff - I love it. I love all kinds of things that require memorized knowledge of trivia and the most inconsequential things, and so I am happy to be doing a job where I can recycle that knowledge and make it useful.

    But in the end, it's still clothes, and they're mostly for wearing and looking good in :eek:

    Isn't that a bit of a personal question?

    Maybe 10" at the base, 8.5" tall when laid flat. Big enough that there's a little bit of extra material at the crown when I wear it, but nothing of Legend of Zelda proportions.

    This is on the one I'm keeping; I never tried the other one on, and it's already boxed up.

    gotcha. I have a giant head so most beanies that fit "loose" are tight as shit. Need a clown sized hat

    Four vintage Danish teak chairs to go with the table.

    Yeah I said that before didn't I? However, nobody said I looked "nice" when wearing the jun leather. Instead the comments appear to be solely about the jacket itself, not my overall outfit-- e.g. people coming up and running their hands over the leather.


    The jacket fits me almost exactly like it does that model! Very slim with just the right amount of looseness. Also, I like how the upper arms are cut looser with extra fabric than is the rest of the jacket (as opposed to being tight in the upper arms like my Julius leather). The Julius makes me look hyper-skinny, whereas the jun looks more balanced on me.

    I really like Danish furniture. My parents have had the same solid teak dining room table for decades and yet it continues to look timelessly stylish.
