    Ive been trawling the web. Im looking for a soft felt fedora with not too wide a brim, fully lined in either mid or light grey and not expensive. Purely to go with suits especially in the spring and summer, therefore lighter grey prefered. Any suggestions?

    It just takes patience and luck to get one at a fair price.

    A good hat store

    You could check with Aaron he owns a very nice hat store and gives a 10% discount to Fedora Lounge members.

    How soft do you want, V?

    Are you talking about crushable soft, or just not cowbay hat hard?
    If Aaron doesn't have what you're looking for, Millerhats.com is a big site. They carry a few name brands, but their own brand is made by Biltmore. Nice hats, not overly expensive, but still hover around the $100 mark. I'd go with a Miller before paying full price for a Stetson, but if you can find a Stetson you like on Ebay, they do have some nice looking dress hats.
    Otherwise, there's Ebay for vintage.

    Ditto Miller and Biltmore....

    'Round a hundred and change and a little better than Stetson.

    I've been eyeing the Stylemaster, does it have the same crown height as the Federation?

    I quite like the Jaxon Bogart. Anyone have one and have any comments regarding them?
