Obviously not a hat I wear these days, but thought it would be interesting to share. My mom brought it when they came to visit last week. From my first visit to Walt Disney World in early 1983 (she thinks, could be late ‘82). Pretty neat to see the chain stitch embroidered name on the back! They don’t make em like they used to.

New in - received another Well Dressed Head creation from Keith Lo Bue this week

Fabric is Thai straw indigo stripe which is awesome – light and super breathable

The model is the Clover , a 1920's style four-panel newsboy cap – newsboys are usually eight panel so four-panel is quite unusual 

It’s the same model as @oomslokop picked earlier in this thread - thanks mate for creating an irresistible urge for another!

Took a couple of months as they’re made to order but worth the wait – as ever, great construction from Keith

We just now need some more summer here ;)

With pics against type 1 for indigo comparisons

No photos with it yet, but since this thread hasn't been getting much activity…

Grabbed one of the linen Blluemade bucket caps from S&S Santa Fe last week & it's been treating me great! Brim's on the small side, but overall I'd def. recommend

thank you dear sir; an old-ish bleu de travail ... seen out on so many backs of the media class in London these days I mostly keep it in reserve for another time... these peeps seem to have a good few nice examples

this is a proper good example...

My new HW Dog hat came in.  It was hard finding the navy color because it’s sold out almost everywhere except Canvas.
