    Thanks, Bowen. No other tags or labels behind the sweatband or liner.

    I apologize for my error and/or misrepresentation of your ideas in my attempt to re-state here the information you offered in a different thread. I'll edit my initial post to correct the error. As for what more information I need, there isn't anything I've come across on this site in my very...

    Stetson Streamliner Information Gathering Thread

    Yesterday I started a thread in the "Ask a question..." area of the site about the style of a Stetson hat I couldn't identify, and today I was able to follow up with what appears to be evidence the hat is a Streamliner. It looks like there are only two other mentions of a Stetson Streamliner on...

    I have a modern Stratoliner. I don't know if they are made in the USA, but I can tell you that the felt is not as heavy as the Akubra I own, and whereas Akubras are 100% rabbit fur, exact composition of the Stratoliners is a mystery as far as I know. My expectation is that the Stratoliner is...

    Hmmm, interesting possibility. I took the liberty of borrowing a photo from that link and placing it side-by-side with the Streamliner I just picked up. They do look very similar.

    Okay a bit more to go on, but I'm not sure the mystery is solved. Looks like the tag indicates this is a 'Streamliner,' though I haven't been able to find any information about a Stetson Streamliner. It's a very lightweight hat, and the color is more brown than I thought it would be given the...

    Hadn't heard of the Bantam but you're right, it has a similar look. Seems that like the Playboy, most Bantams I've been able to see photos of (since reading your post) have 'Bantam' on the sweatband and are without a liner. But it's also clear, and kind of crazy, that Stetson appears to have...

    Good point about having no choice but to speculate, Jared, and thank you for the suggestion! Looks promising and I'll see what more I can find out about the Wanderer.

    Exactly like that (but for color), yes. Thank you for the searching advice, and maybe there just isn't much on this site about these hats. Your link was helpful!

    I don't seem to have much luck with the search function on this site so I'm posting here again seeking information. I'm looking at a 50's era Open Road style Coronet and wondering about local opinion regarding this brand.
