    So I've been looking at the new Stetsonians on the web and was curious if anyone on here had one they'd like to sell. Also curious what y'all think about the quality of the new ones. My size is 7 1/2 and I'm sure you who are cursed with the same large head as me know how hard finding a vintage one can be.

    I own two and I'm pretty high on them. Since they're discontinued, you'll need some luck. I got my first one new and the second NOS on eBay.

    Check the Hatco outlet in Garland occasionally. One may turn up there.

    It was my understanding that they were still making them.

    I don't think they've been in the catalog for a couple years. JJ Hat Center had a few stragglers. Not sure about anybody else.

    Another option would be to have one of our own Lounge Hatters custom make you a clone of one. Something similar to what I did with this Resistol Stagecoach conversion...

    Ha! In good time, buddy! I have an outstanding order on some more hat equipment. Looks like everything is still a few weeks out. Unfortunately, though, I don't have a 7 1/2 block as yet. A good bet might be Rick at Phoenix Hat Company. I'd definitely give him a try.

    I really like the Stetsonian. The felt is surprisingly nice, if a bit thick, and the dimensions are my favorite. They also have the same problems that all modern Stetsons have. :(
    They are discontinued, but some retailers still have some in stock. I think all the open crown Stetsons of that/this era ran ever so slightly on the big size, so be prepared for possible sizing issues.

    You can have a custom built for the same price, but I like my factory hats too. Good luck....if you find a light gray Stetsonian in 7 5/8 please let me know...there’s a finders fee too. :)

    I have two, mink and a cariboo. Great hat ..wonderful felt, thick yet supple and soft. Changed out the cheap generic ribbon for custom ribbon work. I am a 7 3/8 and both mine are true to size.
