Please ring them up and tell them you know a Beaver in Oxfordshire that needs servicing.

Do you realise what this means in the UK?????

Probably the same thing it means here!  My husband has a beaver t-shirt that is just wrong.  He's not allowed to wear it out in public with me.

Not really - in order to make the felt, the beaver hair is scraped off the skin and is pounded by machines for hours to make it smooth. For a T-shirt, you just need to rip off the beaver's skin and let it bleed to death. Unless you kill it first, which is just a waste of ammunition. Why go to all that trouble for a water rat?

It makes the best, most durable and waterproof hats available. SEE THESE

This is very close to the one I own. Mine is a traditional Cattleman's that is blocked like this one but the brim is not quite as wide as this one nor does the brim curl up as sharply as this one. The color is the same.

You would need to meet Doctor Beaver and then report to me what it was like to be felt. I am just NOT going to do that - I got'ta draw the line somewhere.

I bought a really comfy pair of shoes in an old fasioned shoe shop once and the assistant asked me if I would like my upper felt. It is far the best material to have inside your shoe.

Got to go doctor calls.

I think wearing a suit is preferable. I love a man in a fine Italian suit.
