If you've got a quick hat question and don't see a thread for it, just post it here. Whether the question is about cleaning, anatomy of a hat, brands, etc., this is the place.

Here's one to break the ice....

1900s Stetson expo medal fedora 7 1/4 Sun, 20 Jan 2019 22:20:45 +0000 /threads/1900s-stetson-expo-medal-fedora-7-1-4.96274/ /threads/1900s-stetson-expo-medal-fedora-7-1-4.96274/ invalid@example.com (splintercellsz) splintercellsz
Beautiful early example in a hard to find color. The felt is tan with a brown hatband. The finish is a semi-longhair finish. This hat dry creases with ease.

inside, we find the 1900s exposition logo on the liner. Sadly, the sweatband looks to have been replaced sometime during it's life, but it has many years left. No popped stitching at all.

The only issue I can find are two moth tracks on the underside of the brim, which I photographed.

Comes with the 1930s...

Whatever, it does not have the "glove like" fit that my previous G-1 had.
Note the collar is a different shade also, this one being more of a reddish hue.
Note how the jacket hangs, with the new one being a bit wider overall, front and back (same hanger).

It looks like Disney is going to reboot the Indiana Jones franchise.

Where do you stand? The 2 basic camps seem to be (A) only Harrison Ford can play Indy, or (B) It is time to treat Indiana Jones like James Bond, using new actors as necessary. Personally, I'd buy a ticket either way.

Although it will never happen, I'd kind of like to see a third option happen: That Harrison Ford play the role in 1 or 2 more movies but he plays it in an age appropriate...

Crumple or Hang? Sun, 20 Jan 2019 20:40:27 +0000 /threads/crumple-or-hang.96257/ /threads/crumple-or-hang.96257/ invalid@example.com (Striver) Striver I have 11 leather jackets - all of which I consider valuable to me (though some were cheap to buy and none were very expensive). Some of them I hang in the wardrobe on suitable hangers (taking some care that the hem/ bottom zip parts are lined up!).... whilst some I crumple up and fling onto the bottom of the wardrobe.
Are you a "hanger upper" or a "crumpler"? Or maybe, like me, some are hung and others crumpled!
