Now my only Indy hat (the one on the left!). I've had a Magnoli HJ and a Henry before but this is the one I've hung on to... Waiting for a Raiders Rabbit from Steve D

Nice hat, djd!! I recall your Henry wasn't your favorite hat, though I still love mine. Has the Uptowner changed at all with age and wear?

(Again the stuff in the background is catching my attention! I'd love to take a long walk through your "museum!")

The Henry was a very comfortable hat to wear but I've always been happier with the general shape of the Uptowner - a shape it's held onto very well I might add. The Henry was easy to sell -on and it went to a good home...

I have so much stuff in my lounge - luckily we have two lounges and my wife has hers the way she wants. Mine is a bit of a nerds paradise 8)

Quite stiff compared to the Henry but not that different from how I remember my HJ. Don't mind a bit of stiffnesss if it holds the shape I want :)

Nice hat! I've got a friend/hatter whose had a variety of hats and he's sold/or is trying to sell all of them off as he's just absolutely tickled pink with his Uptowner. Just another example of how great and superior quality Todd's stuff really is.

For those of you reading this, if anyone's interested, the guy I mentioned above has a reblocked Henry I sold him that he's done in a Raiders style for $275. Let me know if interested and I'll steer you towards a place with pictures of it.

I've always thought your Uptowner was a very nice lookin hat. So you say it's comparable in terms of stiffness to a Mags HJ? I had one of those (it was just a touch too tight) and I remember it as being pretty soft.

You're probably right - I don't have them to compare. My HJ was a bit small too.... The Henrys run big and the HJ's small....
