Blues Hat

Hey Jan,
Here are 3 found on the internet.  My  purchase consideration would be  "Is
it a "crushable?".", if you do alot of traveling.  Al sometimes wears a
black  "crushable" fedora.  It's nice when we travel.  It can be put into a
suitcase and looks good when it's unpacked.  A regular hat would not be able
to do that.  It costs him about $45.  Another place to check out is costume
shops - even if they don't have them in stock - they can usually order them.

http://www.levinehat.com/ - This site has really great hats - Look in the
"Dress Collection".They are a little pricey - but I think worth it!
http://www.villagehatshop.com/frame_shopping.html - This one has the a great
selection and is not as pricey
http://www.goorinbros.com/ - look in the "classic"  and "bucket" section
Hope this helps - Have fun!
