Seeking input on quality of beaver hats


Recommended Posts

It  has taken almost six weeks for a package (prescription glasses) to be shipped from Mississippi to Italy through USPS/military postal system.

My Crappy Cowboy Hat has arrived yesterday :) Took a while to make through customs...

 

I am VERY pleased with it! And the small flaw is much less visible in reality than on the pictures on the webshop. Looking forward to wear it on my next match (which ain't soon as we currently in lock down again over here :( )

Yep! We've got a Son and DIL in Okinawa since Sep. My wife sends all their packages 2-3 months early. DIL's birthday was at the end of Feb. My wife was shopping for her gift while we were Christmas shopping. :)

When I was on active duty a package from Spain to Missouri took a week or less. Missouri to Spain took 3 to 4 weeks.

One can always don a rain cover for their hat. These were very popular during the infamous Winter "Rain" match.

Great hat, Eq Phil! And great pic...

 

Non-cowboy, but I just got a Stetson Pinnacle fedora, black. 100% beaver, from Delmonico Hatters in NYC. My first 100% beaver; I've had other fur felt blends. Love that hat!

 

$325 list, 10% off, so about $290. Which I thought good for a Stetson 100% beaver.

A hat is a "rain cover". The better the hat, the better they will shed rain.
