Reading all these threads about custom beaver hats always whets my appetite for a deluxe hat. If it wasn't for the year wait I would probably sign up for an Adventurebilt. Am I correct in believing that Fedora gets his hat bodies from Winchester Hat co in Tennessee, and that this company is owned by Stratton hats? So if I were to order a Stratton 30X beaver hat, I'd be getting a hat with the quality (although perhaps not the workmanship) of an AB? Stratton's prices seem rather reasonable compared to what Stetson et al charge for pure beaver hats. I'm more in the market for a western hat than a fedora anyway.
