Happy Saturday everyone, I post intermittently on here. You fellas are great and always helpful. I now wear an Akubra Fedora with pride. I was insecure about it at first, but now, as one gentleman said here, I own it. I LOVE my open crown Akubra Fedora. It’s perfect for my head and face. I’ll try to post a pic soon. Okay, I’ve wanted a Silverbelly Fedora for years. I bought the Stetson Stratoliner a few year ago ago and didn’t like it. It was stiff and I didn’t like the pre shaped crown. The other day I was googling and discovered the Premier Stetson Stratoliner. Does anyone have this? Is this comparable to the Akubra Campdraft Deluxe? I emailed Stetson and they said I have to go through one of their third party sellers like JJ Hat. Why!? Anyway, I am a 57 cm and they have a 56 cm and said it can be stretched. Can they? Anyone have this done? For me it’s pricy- $245.00. BUT...it’s exacly what I want: open crown- awesome Silverbelly color, brim size. If anyone is familiar with these, are they softer than the regular Stratoliner? I assume it is because it’s an open crown. I think I could still get the Campdraft Deluxe cheaper but it’ll take weeks to get here and I actually like the coloring of the Strat more. So,...can these really be stretched? And is this Premier Stratoliner as nice as I think it is? . For reference, I think my Akubra open crown Fedora is an 11 out of 10. Help please!! And thank you!!!!!
