Well, it’s here and is everything I hoped it would be. The fit is perfect.
As Gustave Flaubert would say: ‘Le bon Dieu est dans le detail' (God is in the details). If that is true then He must be in this Hat because the attention to detail is beyond compare.
The felt is fabulous … Firm yet supple at the same time
Light weight for its size.
The stitching, the liner and the sweatband are exactly as they should be.
It has a 5.5” Crown and 3” brim
Sometime back, when I acquired the Shady Oak “MARLBROUGH FORTY” http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?t=27132
I knew I was hooked on Western Dress. Well, I figure the Stetson One-Hundred Has to be the King of the Heap, so when I saw this one and in the impossible size of 7 5/8’s I new I had to own it. (Let’s be honest, what are the odds of finding 2 Stetson One-Hundreds in size 7 5/8’s and in Top condition in the foreseeable future?? 500,000 to 1 ??)
The last 45 sec of the auction cost me an additional $140.00 (thanks Carter & Lefty ) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=018
I know that several members own a One-Hundred and I hope the can tell me a little about it’s history, Years produced or any points of interest about the hat.
Well, here it is:
Any Info on 100's would be helpfull Thanks
