season from Stetson. A Grade 8 Panama hat, it's the real deal: an unlined straw hat with a four-inch crown, ribbon band and grosgrain sweatband.
You'll see a customer favorite with The Stratoliner
in milan braid too this season. This remake of the famous Stetson hat
features a slightly narrower bound brim than the fur felt
version at 2 1/4 inches, but it also has the narrow grosgrain trim with airplane pin and bound edge. The original Stratoliner
dress western hat was first made in the mid 1940's as part of Stetson's Royal Quality fur felt fedora series. It's offered here in Silver Belly, and features a teardrop crown with 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.
is a Scala hat in Panama straw, fashioned with an outback flair. The brim is just under three inches and is trimmed with a jute band and leather tie buckle. One five-star review of this USA-made western hat
reads: "I have used this hat for the past four years playing golf. Wears like iron, looks great and helps with the birdies and the eagles."
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. Look for it as a straw hat
too, with a 2 3/4 brim, slim black ribbon band and pin. More western hats
in straw come your way with Christys' Panama hat, The Outback 2
. With its generous three inch brim and eyelets for venting, this hat is meant to keep you cool (and good looking) on hot days.
We keep other fur felt Stetson hats
available for your order through the year, including The Weekender
, a 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.
There's also one called The Derby
and although a you might think 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, and you can order it whatever the season.
