I am having difficulties narrowing down my First Fur Felt purchase. In comparison of these hats strictly new: Hats direct (approx. cost with shipping) Fed IV $125 Fed IV deluxe $155 Stetson Stetsonian $200 shipped (discounted from retail). I know the Stetson has the bound edge. I am trying to make a decision on these hats new (Looking at used ideally). I know color is a big concern (originally wanted something in the tawny/light brown/tan family but now after spending much more time on this forum something in brown may be more versatile as my first. Problem is I would most likely a something in black, tawny, brown, gray……but right now that is not an option to purchase all these colors (not to mention additional styles) in the $200 or so range (even less if I can get them pre-owned). Opinions would be appreciated since the more I read on this forum (e.g. what your are wearing) the more I am uncertain on the direction I want to go. Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks again.
