Stetson is offering a new Open Road in the Spring 2017 collection. It's a 10X with venting and will be available in Natural and Toast. Any thoughts/comments?

With the venting you're going to have to stay with a Cattleman crease or push it to an open crown. Not any other options that I can think of.

I've been entertaining the thought of buying a straw open road for awhile now. Glad I haven't yet. I REALLY dig the venting on that one.

I dig the design .... but shantung "straw" is awful

I love the design. What is bad with shantung? I am asking because I don't know anything about how it compares to hemp or toquilla.

I like the venting much better than the standard shantung OR , looks good , more like a Panama OR .
The 10X will have a much better weave than the current 6X. I'll know soon what they look like. I ordered a few of each yesterday and they had some of the darker ones in stock.
The natural will have to be made and will probably take a couple months.
