View Full Version : Penman Hats (Show your hat here!)

I noticed there was no thread on this forum for showing and discussing the wonderful hats created by John Penman, so I thought I would create one!

Here is a post I put on another forum three weeks ago regarding the lovely hat Mr Penman created for me:

"Ah. I am finally a member of the "Penman Owners" club. The package was delivered today. I have been waiting for this moment for the past five months, and it was great to finally receive the box today!
Inside the cardboard box was the famous Penman Hat Box, and what a lovely box it is!


I opened the hat box to find the most perfect hat inside. I slipped it carefully out of the box and looked at it for a minute before slipping it on my head, and as i suspected, it fit like a glove, a very comfortable glove!


My only regret was that I'd have to go to bed at some point today and would have to remove the hat from my head :)

Thank you Mr Penman for the finest hat I have ever seen/touched/owned!"

Anyway, If people here want to show off their Penman hat, please post them up! :)

I actually just received a new Penman a few weeks ago. It's a Penman style in charcoal gray with a dark maroon ribbon and underwelt on the brim. As I told John after receiving it, it's the most beautiful hat I've ever seen (and these pictures don't even begin to do it justice!).



Also, here's a pic of me wearing my first Penman (almost 2 years old now), a green & black Raiders style, after hiking to the top of Harney Peak on vacation in South Dakota last month:


I tell you, one of the first things I'll do if I ever strike it rich is order a few more hats from John.

I love that dark maroon ribbon Steambot! Very nice! And works so well with the charcoal of the hat! And it's always nice to see a non-indy Penman hat :)
He does make the nicest hats! :)

Funny thing is, I was doing a google image search for hat ideas and stumbled across a picture that someone had actually posted somewhere on this forum, of a black Penman with the maroon ribbon. I fell in love with the ribbon color and had been wanting a gray hat, so...
