So, I came across an odd stingy brim fedora made by Stetson in Japan, looks like 1940s (or 50s).

What is odd about it, is that the is a double sweatband. A cloth one that has an edge wrapped over a leather one.

Also, the "Stetson Premier" stamp in the leather seems to have been stamped into the leather through the cloth and while the cloth was on it because the stamp seems to have been embossed into the cloth, too.

Either that or over time the cloth just conformed to the embossing? Maybe??

Anyway, has anyone seen one like this?

The German license thread has at least on with a similar tag. Nothing on the double sweat style.
