Hats

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

All of them are new [my previous collection was given in church for charities] and in my schedule is to buy another Panama in Ivory colour.

Those are cool hats! Are they the kind that collapse? I used to to want one of those but never bought one.

My prodigal hat returned. It was a wool fiddler cap. I had one before and lost it. Ordered a new one and have it had for 3 years. Lost it a few weeks ago. Wasn't going to replace it and was thinking maybe God didn't care for that particular style since I have other hats from high school. Yesterday, I happened to go out to my wife's car. There it was above the back seat! Here is a pic of the hat.

These are hats from wicker, the cheap ones are from paper-wicker and the expensive are from wicker from Ecuador etc. They don't collapse and they evaporate the sweat from the forehead easily but the secret is: Not get wet and be careful with the storage at Winter [must not be pressed by weight or don't push them to fit in a narrow space] so they will not lose their original shape. They are light weight, beautiful, useful and give you a touch of ''old time era'' Gentleman.

As always, I recommend Sunbody Hats
I'd get the Guatemalan fine palm with a 2.5" or 3" brim for summer. I have a 2.5" one. It's my summer go to. Bulletproof.

Add some large vent eyelets and a leather band and yer good to go. They are waterproof and conform to your head very well. In fact, you should water your palm hat occasionally if you live in a dry environment. Just wet it down, shape it how you want it, and let it dry on your head.

Here's my SunBody Sam Houston that I picked up here on The Moonbase for doing yardwork.

I have too many hats. Here are a few that I am going to unload. I hope to post them up for sale soon. Most of them are high crown with at least a 2.5" brim. Love the vintage felt. It dents and conforms like clay.

I wore a sleeping hat until I was 20 and it got ruined in the wash. Been looking all week and think I have found a good one online that I will order tomorrow.

I didn't even know sleeping hats were a thing anymore. Your post caused me to google them and I stumbled on this. Sounds legit to me and they're on sale! (batteries not included)

Very cool. Each hat has real character.

I like it. If it comes with the wig you might not need it though.

Looks better than most beanie hats I see.
