Great Grandpa’s Bowler Hat – Part 2

Great grandpa Johann might not have worn his bowler hat very often after his wedding, but 100 years later in Berlin, it does see the light of day (or twilight of a club 😉 ) from time to time, so finally the seam of the sweatband gave up, and the inner lining had always been a bit sad as well, so it was time for a pimp my bowler hat session! Of course the outer decoration was also upgraded at the same time. Good as new and ready for Kitkat again!
