    That C-1 Kingslower and DD San Pedro are just my style. So is that No. 581 dress hat with the mid-ribbon.

    Text says "Stetson's new Quality"....

    It also said it in the Spring-Summer 1943. I do not own the 1942 catalogs, but they are not mentioned in the Winter 1940-1941 catalog.

    This also touts the new oil silk sweat resistor between the sweatband and the felt; that is repeated at the top of every page with Stetson hats. So, it would appear this begins in 1943 (maybe 1942). I'm not seeing any mention of oil silk liner tip, so maybe this helps identify that Stetson had not yet begun using oil silk for the tip.
     
  10. I like how they state for the 25 "finest hat you can buy" then on the next page list the 5X Beaver 35 "very best Quality, Styling & Expert Craftsmanship"....

    ok, so the oil silk sweat resistance barrier was also 'new' in 1941! Cute.

    I love the tall crowns. That Range Rider is 8.5" open crown AND has 5" of brim, too. The new Stetson catalog is all 4 or 4.5 inch crowns. Even the Tom Mix is only 5".

    To my taste, the big brims call out for these loftier crowns. That's my idea of what a cowboy hat looks like.

    That Santa Fe with the 5 1/2" crown and 2 1/2" brim, I could go for one of those. Maybe even at 10x the price.
