    The Brotherhood of the Thin Ribbon

    Stetson Open Road. Just a few years old, it's finally getting a much needed soaking.

    The Brotherhood of the Thin Ribbon

    There are many like it, but this one is mine. After a southern California soaking. Love the lines of this hat.

    Three Silverbellies

    Bowlerman: All three of these hats are Stetsons. The cowboy hat was not only a cowboy hat, it was a size seven. I wear a 7 3/8. I spent months slowly steaming and stretching that hat, and now it actually fits pretty well. I seem to be able to wear a silverbelly hat with anything. Among my...

    Three Silverbellies

    Yes, I found that thread a few days after I ordered the new Stratoliner. It does look great, even though my open crown experiences have been a bit rough, and I'm one of the rare forumites that likes a tapered hat! That said, I'll probably order one as soon as alternative colors become...

    Three Silverbellies

    I only bashed the one in the middle. The other two are stock, pre-bashed hats. I'm not really keen on the cattleman's crease, and now that I've got the Stratoliner, I doubt I'll wear the OR much anymore. The strat seems like a better fit for my pointy head and humongous ears.

    Three Silverbellies

    Left to right: 4X Open Road purchased about two years ago; 4X Cowboy hat purchased about 25 years ago, trimmed and reshaped; brand new Stratoliner - no Xs. The OR and Strat are very close in color, but the Strat has a little more rose to it. I don't know if the hybrid's color has changed with...

    The Stratoliner Society {VINTAGE}

    Thanks. I'm hoping to combine stratocaster, stratoliner, and a couple of beautiful women for the Women in Men's Fedoras thread.

    Woman wearing Hats

    Thanks, and nope. Just a friend from one of the sessions that launched this thread. Hoping to schedule another session this month, with three models in three silverbelly Stetsons.

    Post New Hats Here!

    Just opened the box and popped it onto my head. Better images later, probably in the Stratoliner thread. Very happy during these first five minutes, though!

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Today it's the ever-evolving hybrid. I've reshaped it so many times I'm stunned it doesn't have any holes yet.

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    A no-name-o Panama my son brought home from Ecuador last year. An excellent yard work companion.

    Do Dogs Really Hate Hats?

    Sometimes I think that when it comes to sentient beings, all evidence, however carefully collected, is ultimately anecdotal. The problem is that when I doff my hat to calm the dogs, any humans nearby recoil in horror...

    Do Dogs Really Hate Hats?

    Conventional wisdom around here says that dogs dislike men in hats. I've developed a habit of doffing my hat as I approach properties with excitable dogs on my daily walk. Anyone know if there's real research on the topic?

    Great looking hats, one and all!

    What is your go to hat?

    For the second year in a row, the Akubra Banjo Paterson was the hat to wear when I didn't know which hat to wear. The Open Road was a close second, but could not match the Banjo's versatility (in my everyday casual wardrobe). What is YOUR go-to hat ? Here is the hat, covering for me at the...

    Bald guy Fed IV question?

    I'm bald. First, I cut the plastic out of my Fed IV. After a while, I removed the liner. I've enjoyed it more since then, but to each his own. I've cut the plastic out of all my hats - it just wasn't comfortable. I don't care about the logos or anything like that. I'm gonna wear these hats...
