    Wanted, for sale or trade: used Stetson stetsonian, Stetson Grand Central or Akubra Federation or Akubra Campdraft, 7 1/2- 7 5/8. Figured I'd put some feelers out. Maybe somebody knows someone who has one etc

    I have both Stetsonians and Grand Central's and love them both! This will be that " hard nut to crack" finding someone willing to part with one......but it never hurts to ask.....I am still looking for the elusive light grey Stetsonian in this size........;)

    I know a shop that sells them. If you're on Facebook, contact Adam Coren of JJ Hat Center and tell him Adam Pajkowski sent you. JJs still sells Stetsonians (at full price even though they're discontinued) and I know for a fact that they have them in grey

    Yes, his are the Carabou grey and I have one of those. I am looking for the very light grey (even lighter than Phantom grey) they first produced the Stetsonian in when they introduced them.....

    $115 for the Federation - $150 for the Grand Central - fees are extra - both are in new condition with VERY little wear...seriously.

    I'm favoring the Federation (price plus I can't see myself in a light bone hat). Whereabouts are you? Is paypal acceptable?

    I live just outside Montreal. I use a forwarding company in Champlain NY for holding my US purchases when shipping costs to Canada become crazy. I can ship from there as well but you would have to wait for my next trip down.
    Just to be clear, I am a 61"-62" size. If you are closer to 7 1/2 the Fed would be too big to be wedged with sweatband stuffing.

    So why list as looking for 7 5/8 as well? They will all be too big.

    The regular Akubra Federation is reccommended in a size larger than normal, but I think yours is an older version and is more a size 7 3/4 if it's a 62.

    Let me get it out and try to post a picture tomorrow. I will also see what I have into it for pricing - it is a better quality hat than the other two we have been discussing - vintage usually is.

    Hope you secure this deal with him. Vintage hats are too cool to pass up, especially in your size margin!

    So it’s a size 60 so 7 1/2 Champ. Chocolate brown with a mid brown ribbon and binding. It has a brand new soft leather sweatband replaced by Mike at Northwest Hats.
    Sorry about crappy pictures. I’m away and the best mom could do.
    The felt is better quality than any current Akubra and is in great shape with zero bug damage anywhere.
    I can do the $130 total shipped to you.
