for the gent
Stumbled upon this sweet Etsy shop featuring great, no fabulous!, vintage style handmade hats. Must start saving my pennies now if I want my favorite pick for each season...
(or maybe I will just settle with one, sigh...which shall it be?)

This is what she has to say on her shop:
"I collect vintage wool fabric and buckles and use them to create the hats you see. The fabulous quality of vintage fabrics really inspires me. I hope you are as impressed with that quality as I am.
For spring and summer hats I use high quality linens and cottons - many I import from Japan.
I've been a Costume Properties Artisan and made accessories for the stage for over ten years. I've worked with a variety of designers from around the world and have created everything from foul-mouthed puppets to leather gorgets to spats, crowns and sword belts. I enjoy it all but I absolutely LOVE making hats and hope you enjoy them too!

What do you think....aren't they lovely?
