The collection of Stetson hats for Fall/Winter 2015 is, like that of John B. Stetson men's caps and hats, simply stellar. New this season is a Stetson dress hat called Le Chiffre. Better than butterscotch (its color) in soft royal fur felt, it has a bound edge brim, leather sweatband and satin lining. It's absolutely delectable. Also new from Stetson is a fedora in Natural, with an orange ribbon trim. Called The Ripley, it is crafted from Royal deluxe fur felt, and is finished with a leather sweatband and satin lining for added comfort.
Back by demand are some favorites from last year, one a fur felt fedora called The Barnstormer. It's a fabulous hat in a color called Caribou, and features a two-inch raw edge brim and very slim ribbon trim with Stetson pin. The silk-lined hat is fitted with leather sweatband and is, like all Stetson hats, made in the USA.
We've got a Stetson classic on hand too this season: The Stratoliner, which was first made some 70 years ago. It's a luxurious fur felt fedora with a 2 1/2 inch brim, grosgrain trim with airplane pin and bound edge. The dress hat features a teardrop crown and stands about 4 inches high at the front, slanting slightly downward toward the back. It is fully lined, sports a leather sweatband and is boxed and ready for immediate delivery. Customers love this hat, calling it beautiful and saying that "the fabric is luxurious." One five-star review reads: "I am a custom hat aficionado, and my Stratoliner is a sweet addition."
The Downs is a hat from Stetson's Royal Quality Collection, and this fur felt fedora has a slightly different look from the norm with its large teardrop crown nicely offset by its 2 3/8 inch snap brim and slim grograin band. There are a number of five-star reviews from satisfied customers that praise this hat's quality, fit and look, including one that reads: "What a beautiful product. Far better than expected. I have six high quality fedoras and really know and value quality." If you decide to order, leave a review of your own.
For a nostalgic men's hat style from the 1930's, The Temple is perfect as a modern classic. It's got a raw edge 2 5/8 inch dimensional brim that you can snap down in front or all around. This fur felt fedora, with a ribbon, bow and feather trim, is offered in a choice of shades. If you need a slightly more casual look in a fur felt hat, take a look at The Weekender by Stetson. The felt is finely finished, the hat is fully lined and it features a dimensional brim and striking pheasant feathered band. Five-star reviews for this Stetson hat read:
Awesome hat that fits and looks very good.
Usual Stetson quality, plus a great look!
Exactly what he wanted. Fit perfectly.
I collect fedora hats and I always find Stetson fur felt ones to be among the best; the Weekender is no exception. I have received numerous compliments on the hat and the price beat several other competitors by a significant margin.
Stetson is the name to go to for cowboy hats, of course, including dress western hats like The Open Road. This rancher's hat is crafted from Grade 4X fur felt and has a pre-shaped, slightly rolled bound edge brim measuring 2 3/4 inches with an extremely slim ribbon trim. With this high quality hat, in the words of one happy customer, "happiness is unavoidable."
