Were fedoras with hatband bow on right side instead of left originally a woman's style or just a standard variation?
Domingo, ponte el sombrero y vamos.
seeing if anyone in kansas knows stores on where to buy an open crowned fedora?
Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.
Unless you have a real big hat shop, you're unlikely to find any, just because there's not a lot of open crowned hats being made right now to begin with. Off hand I can only think of the Borso Alessandria and Akubra Fed IV. The former might be available in a well stocked store, but the latter is only available from Hatsdirect.com

Saint-Just, thanks for your answer!
Akubra has open crown hats as well. Good hats at a really decent price.
Recently my FP bow loop came a little undone, so I removed it and attempted to replace it using the loose thread. My sewing skills are... well they suck. And after I put it back on I noticed that I had done it upside down-- so that the overlap is facing the wrong way. I'm not sure it's really a problem, but I can't find any loops on other hats that are overlapped the upside down way.
So-- my main question is: is there a reason that the folded loop always tends to overlap the same way, either practical or cosmetic??
Now it's this:
"I have recently acquired a new hat of such ferocity that it has been running my whole life for me. I wake up in the morning thinking, 'Who shall I wear my hat at today?'"
