Speaking from a strictly business perspective, international orders scare a lot of small business owners. Sadly, that's where the most fraud occurs so that's why you often get the "call us" or very high price quotes from businesses. I once quoted a "customer" $15,000 for two dozen hats. He...
Straw and rain don't go together. You could go with a Sunbody hat because they're actually shaped by dunking them in water. There are a couple things to keep in mind though. First, they're much heavier than most other straw hats. Second, they can be very warm in hot weather so you may want to...
You may want to check with the store where you got that picture as all our Temple-Sage fedoras have a black ribbon, not brown. Maybe they did a special run with brown bands. And yes, the Chatham and Temple are the same felt quality.
For me, the odd part isn't that a hat got sat on but I can just imagine a bunch of men standing around debating who's fault it was and if the man is entitled to a new hat. Gives new meaning to the term "street justice".

I'm not sure why you're so upset about the use of X's. They're simply a way to designate the different quality levels within a given brand. You can't compare a Stetson 4X to a Bailey 4X but you can see and feel the difference between a Stetson 4X, 10X, 20X, etc. The X ratings have never been and...
We all see what's happening with gas prices, now take a look at diesel. It's now about $1 more than regular unleaded gas. This gets passed down to all of us. We can have "fuel surcharge" increases almost weekly forcing us to split our shipments between UPS, FedEx and the USPS just to try and...
I only got to see a sample so no long term testing has been done. As with all Stetson's fur felt western hats it was stiff. The felt felt better than the Buffalo felt and closer to the feeling of a traditional 4X western hat.
Only time will tell how the Kangaroo felt stands up to use and...
