Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Nice! I'd definitely consider ordering a wool one. I would be skeptical of how well that suit liner wicks though.

Tweed or standard plaid would be hot.

Give me a holler when you're ready to accept an order.

I'm loving the idea. I've got this great Pea green Harris Tweed that I love that's never gonna fit me again. I might just take inspiration from your project, and turn it into hats. The best one gets the label.

this picture is an awful cropped camera phone job, but it should suffice:

i made this goofy hat last night from a fairly thin cotton (yeah, it'll breathe) and an old doom (crust as ****!) backpatch that i had lying around. it doesn't sit as deep on the head and has a smaller bill than the other that i posted yesterday. it's not lined and is more like the type that i'll be generally selling in the upcoming months, because it's more suited for warm/hot weather. yeah.

did you make the pattern from scratch or did you do some deconstruction to figure it out?
