    How great you put this hat trick shim sham on your website. I want to learn this.

    Just one question: what kind of hat do I need. I have a 100% woolen one, but it seems not stiff enough.
    What do you use?

    Thanks for the answer.

    We use a fully crushable wool felt fedora. There are many varieties so get a hat you want to wear around town. Lately I’ve started playing with a summer straw fedora. seems to me you can get used go anything. I have found that many tricks are more difficult with a harder hat. Soft is more forgiving but too soft makes the hat dribble. Let me know what you end up with.

    You are right practicing with the hat I started with, I became used to it and it now goes better. I am not there yet, but I keep on practicing.
