New Blocks On The Way

Ok, I admit it, I'm addicted to Guy Morse Brown Hat Blocks. They have the best workmanship combined with fantastic styles and superb customer service. And, they're experts at making custom shapes, creating beautiful, functional tools out of my crazy notions.

I'm eagerly awaiting my latest order of blocks, which includes more mens styles. Also, GMB just sent photos of a brand new custom block design they made for me, a squashy little fedora crown. It'll go with a stingy snap brim. I can't wait to try it out!

Happy Happy Feedback

A nice bit of feedback I just received on Etsy: "What a beautiful, BEAUTIFUL hat! It is meticulously hand crafted from the delicately pleated ribbonwork to the hand-stitched inner band. Just lovely. I am so happy to have this hat! On a more practical note: I
received the hat in a timely manner and in perfect condition ...right to the tips of its feathers. The hat box presentation is charming. Thank you so much!"

Custom Order: More Minis

Here are some quickie photos of a couple of the hats I just sent out toward a big custom order for a lovely customer in Australia.

John Galliano Menswear Spring 2011

Check this fashion collection out, it's all based on the silent film era, especially comedian Buster Keaton. It's funny to see the models walking so seriously while dressed in these deliciously silly clothes & moustaches. And so many hats! Here are a few shots from it:
