      I think what’s holding the hat up is older than the hat!:D

      You can’t see it very well, but this is my very old and dirty Good Luck hat. While it might not seem always to work, I figure it would be even worse without the hat. Sort of like the infamous elephant repellant. πŸ˜›

      Here’s a few of mine. I’m bald so I got a lot of hats….

      not terribly dirty but had plenty of sweat in them

      Hand made welders caps I wore when I was welding pipeline. They got plenty dirty and sweaty but they were washable. No problem

      My favorite felt hats. I doubt either of these could be found even on that E-*** site.

      And last but not least, a favorite fishing hat. It protected my old noggin on many a trip in salt and fresh water.

      Great thread Grumpy, thanks for starting it.

      Duncan, I see you have good taste in books as well as hats. But Wendell Berry should definitely be on top. πŸ˜†

      I hope I never go bald like you. πŸ˜›

      He’s a jerk grumps, I put a bucket hat on him but he can bin it mid walk and I never know. So now I sunscreen him up and chase the shade πŸ˜‰

      My filthy old hat isn’t even that old, about 4 years, but it never gets washed so it’s embedded with filth from all over Australia, the US, Afghan and a few choice parts of the Arabian peninsula. It’s stiffening up like cardboard though, might have to retire her soon πŸ˜›

      Aw shucks Dave, balding ain’t so bad. You just buzz whats left and go lo maintenance.

      All good reads there along with my usual bird books and edible wild plant guides that I often am glued to.

      Here’s Old Lucky. Note worn out turkey feather in the crown, and bill held on by safety pin. My tradition for years was to re-camo it prior to each turkey season with a sharpie. I love this hat.

      Haha tailfeather, I’ve seen some battered old hats but not one that maintains it’s integrity via safety pin and fights fading with a sharpie πŸ˜€

      I was advised that I needed to submit a picture of my dirty old hat, here is an image of my Akubra Territory hat; 100% rabbit felt when I bought it, in this image it’s about 60% rabbit felt, 10% dirt, 20% salt (from sweat), 5% flies and 5% lizard.

      Audrey says my dirty old hat doesn’t smell (and shouldn’t scare the deer). Can youse guys (Y’all in Dixie) say the same?
