I'll start this thread with a new acquisition - a gently used carbon gray Fed IV that I acquired via a Fedora Lounger.

I received this hat during the early days of the hurricane cleanup. I had no power from 10/29 until 11/9 so I'm posting today when I could finally find enough time to recrease, shoot, and post these images.

I have wanted for a long time for this hat in this color. I got it in like-new condition, and am very happy with it.

Here it is the way I got it:

The wide front pinch was off-center, so recreasing it would be necessary even if I didn't change the look. Here it is recreased with my preferred Raiders pinch:

It's the same hat. Time of day makes a big difference with the color. The before photo is closer to the real color, as it was shot with natural light from the bathroom window.

That is a GREAT looking hat. Love the color! It's a real beauty!

Thank you, HJJ.

Let's see some more Fed IVs (and IIIs, too, if you guys have 'em).

And this is one of my dailies, my brown:

This is probably how the hat looks now, after having been reshaped and reblocked over the last 3 years.

Here's a few shot of my moonstone FedIV. This is my "dressy" hat.

I was going to post my Fed III, but it can be seen, in all its glory, in my avatar, at least until I change it.

You can see how much bigger the III is than the IV.
