    Check out the crease. It looks like the C&K whose-a-ma-whatsit [someone will remember the model]

    Ok, I'm slow. The Saratoga had that style crease.

    I haven't gotten a new one for a while, but this came today... Stetson 100 from Morris Men's Shop, Stockyard Inn, Chicago

    It is in great shape, very clean. Seems in near new shape. And the trunk has both the plastic holders and the key! The size tag is the black, key-hole tag. Size 7-1/8 but a tad roomy on me.








    I am going to guess late 50s early 60s because Morris men's shop went away before the 70s (the Stockyard Inn closed and the men's shop moved and stopped selling western wear and hats).

    It is a smaller trunk compared to the Stetson 100 Western that I have.

    To maybe answer your question about when you'll have enough hats, . . .

    Excellent, Alan! Do let us see it when you get it.

    Great pickup on that 100, Hats enough ( maybe you should change your name).

    Certainly.

    Hats Enough, based on your Stetson felt comments on the previous page, is the felt on this 100 softer than your 7XCB? It looked like a nice 100 and earlier than mine, though the timeframe of the Stetson 100 is only a decade (mid fifties to mid sixties, I think.) I was tempted on this one.

    Alan,

    The felt of the crown is much nicer on this 100 than it is on my 60/70s era 7X, for sure. The crown is very soft but holds a shape very well. The brim on the 100 is a bit stiffer than I would have guessed, though. Still, the difference between this late 50s 100 and the late 60s or early 70s 7X is startling. The 7X is stiff all over, crown and all. In fact, I really can't feel any difference that would tell me the 7X is a 7X! It just doesn't feel much different than a 4X or 3X from the same time period. This 100 just has a nicer feel to it all the way around.

    Just got my email from Jenny on the Heritage Campdraft deal. If that hat comes out anywhere close to the same arena, the same Zip Code as your new 100 or Alan's 7XCB I will be THRILLED.

    I have been looking at hat boxes for a while now and I keep seeing a funny line in the description area of some of the sales. It goes something like this:

    "Vintage XXX(name your hat company here) company hat box. Good only for decoration"

    Why is it "good only for decoration"? Can't anyone put anything in them??

    It is just a funny way to describe an empty hat box.
