    I found a mid bluish grey mode edge (cavanaugh edge) Stetson Sovereign in mint condition. I am in SF in Fashion Design school right now and I picked it up at a vintage store in Haight Street. It is the best fitting fedora I have ever had. It's the only hat that looks better than my original Gus Miller fedora. I wear it every where.;)

    The brim droops down, and is 2 5/8 inches wide. This in the best fedora I have ever owned! I will post pictures later in the day. It is one of the nicest hats on the lounge.

    Yes look forward to seeing it - I have one myself with the same brim size I picked up earlier this year that was still open crown and it's become a regular wearer.

    Would like to compare the liner and sweatband.

    TTFN,

    Bill

    Congrats, Met' - on the schooling and the hat. Looking forward to it! My Mode Edge Sovereign has very, very soft felt. You must be pleased.

    Why, this is most cruel, Metro. It's like ringing a bell around Pavlov's dog. We need pictures of this excellent purchase.

    as nice as your outfits are, Metropd, I would like to see CLOSE UPS of the actual hat. This includes the liner.

    Ditto, I'd like to see what places this as 30's instead of 40's/50's

    That hat is awesome! A great find! How much was it at the vintage store? I should search some vintage/Goodwill stores in my area more often.
