    So I just ordered an Excellent Stratoliner in Caribou from Sterling Leather. It looks like it's a special order item for them, but the price was pretty nice with a discount code. I went with a 7 1/2 and will just pad it if it's too large (my size 59 Akubra Sydney gives me pretty vicious hat hair, so I figured I could use a bit more room). I'll post pics when it arrives.

    Anyone pre-order an Excellent Strat from Delmonicos? If so, have you received your hat yet?

    We have not received any of the Excellent Quality Stratoliners as of yet. Hatco is putting together an order of finished hat this week to send to us. hopefully they will be in the shipment.

    Thanks for all the reaction to the newby in the collection!

    All the hype? Completely WARRANTED! I evaluated and compared to many other (vintage and currently made) hats I own, and the effort of Mr. Deckard and the folks at Stetson have resulted in an amazing, TOP quality product. The felt quality is clearly among the best I have ever experienced. The crease shown in the photo at DelMonico's store was put in dry in less than ten seconds (thanks, Jeff!) The feeling of the handwork that goes into the manufacturing process of these lids is remarkable. Even the presence of a minor imperfection imparts a positive (IMHO) sense that this is a solidly handcrafted product.

    Guess what hat I'm wearing today!

    Jeff's perfect quick bash...

    To me, this shows the human aspects of the process...

    Life is all about good lighting... POOF, it's gone!

    In summary, I LOVE this hat. The weight, the feel, the look... everything about it is as hats should be. Even the TAR, for a WAR-wearer, is just PERFECT!!

    CONGRATULATIONS, Matt, and everyone who had a hand in this project! HOME RUN!!!!!

    Awesome, Charlie! Congrats. Congrats to Mr. Deckard for his good work, too.

    Now, as others have said, how about an Excellent Open Road in Silverbelly?
