Three Axis Of Fedora Amigos

We got together for a bite several weeks back, and finally got a picture of the three of us in the hats:

So, left to right, that’s me, Stacy, and the Wombat. This should help them identify us when we’re hauled off to Room 101.


  • Rick Bulow

    It is good to put a face to the posts of the Wombat.

    You three comprise the three wise men of the blogosphere.

  • smitty

    Well, now, let’s not go accusing us of being too wise. . .

  • richard mcenroe

    Turn around. Okay, NOW I see the wisdom… *g*

  • rosalie

    I’m just glad you’re on our side. You look tough!

  • Mike Miles

    The Wombat needs to get himself a Zoot Suit…

  • Quartermaster

    Great! Now when the FBI asks me about you I can put names and faces together for them.

  • Peter Ingemi

    Nothing like the axis of fedora

  • richard mcenroe

    Nah, just double-breasted, padded shoulders and a silver dollar to flip up and down…

  • Adjoran

    Okay, if you and Wombat are going to wear the fedora, do it right. Look at Stacy. You need a slight but noticeably jaunty tilt on it. Check out any picture of Sinatra in his, ever.

    I see two chins and a nose. Looks like a gang photo.

    Three homies just got thru blogging the sh!t out of some poor liberal who wandered in.

    McCain looks born to wear a Fedora. I think Smitty would look better in a Hamburg. The only hat I can picture Wombat in, isn’t. Looks like he’d be more comfortable in a ball cap. These are personal opinions and count for absolutely….nothing.

  • M. Thompson

    Wiseguys, perhaps.

  • Rick Bulow

    If I were to take a guess, I would think Smitty does not look a day over 28, Wombat a day over 30, and Stacy a day over 26

  • Bob Belvedere

    Actually, I think the fedora fits Wombat – he looks like an Irish Luca Brasi.

  • Laura Mulholland

    And all this time I’ve thought that Wombat was a girl, a hot little Latina with a nice rack and a cute a**.

    I suppose that’s racist.

    “Lawless” — The Musical! Coming soon to your community!

  • Wombat_socho

    My head’s not shaped like that, sorry.

  • Wombat_socho

    You have clearly mistaken me for my maternal cousins, who are MUCH better looking than I am.

  • Wombat_socho

    You’re twenty years off in all cases, but the lighting was poor.

    When my fortunes recover I will be consulting the esteemed Paco regarding the optimum choice of suit. In the meantime, it’s Dickies work shirts and tactical pants in the festive color of my tribe, i.e. black.

  • Wombat_socho

    I usually do wear baseball caps. The fedora is reserved for special occasions.
