's Royal Quality fur felt fedora
series and now it's back. Offered in Silver Belly, it features a teardrop crown, has a 2 1/2 inch brim, and grosgrain ribbon trim with classic airplane pin. The color is wonderful, the fabric luxurious, the hat a thing of beauty. Brand new this season is The Stratoliner

is a Stetson fedora
with a nice western hat
style to it. Made from fur felt, it's a hat
you might not wear to a button-down business meeting, but it's fancy enough for a more casual dress event. Fully lined, this men's hat
boasts a dimensional brim turned slightly downward, and has an outstanding pheasant feather band for the trim.
One of the best known dress cowboy hats
is The Open Road
, and it's offered in a couple of versions. In Grade 4X quality fur felt, the elegant western hat
features a preshaped, slightly rolled brim with bound edge. The deep center crease and side dents work together to really bring out the rancher hat influence.
Although a derby hat
obviously isn't a cowboy hat
it was a popular men's hat style
in the Old West. The Derby
is a perfect replication of that style silhouette from Stetson
, with a 2 1/8 inch brim which has a lightly bound edge. The hat is satin lined and fitted with a leather sweatband for wearer comfort.
