Man, oh Man, ClintF! Spectacular find!!
+1 what Charlie said!
The Sovereign's are sweet hats and Yours Clint, is outstanding! A noticeable step up in quality (and that's saying something as vintage Stetson's lower"Royal" quality is unmatched in today's best hats).
I echo Tommy
really great find Clint
My small contribution to the thread, an Open Road, I don't know the vintage, papers missing.
Awesome, JoeyC! A knockout Sovereign and an Open Road. That's a Grail hat for me right there (early 50's if I had to guess).
Thanks guys! Joey that's a solid lid! I have a sovereign 20 open road I'll post but it's not as old as this beauty!
Ive been thinking lately Tommy, I'm at 20 keeper lids in my collection now and wonder why I'm looking at the bay every night and thrift shops on the weekends, I need another hat like I need a hole in the head, but is it all about the search for the grail? I think it very well may be.
Thanks Tommy and Clint. I have few other OR and a few clones but not of Sovereign quality, still.... very nice hats.
It's not the kill; it's the thrill of the chase. That next great hat is out there, and you're going to find it!
One of my go to hats. Takes any crease. Recently had a telescopic crease I switched to this cattleman. Very dense felt. I would love to come across another.
Totally Terrific, Tonio!! A seriously sweet lid there!
I didn't know this thread existed. Here's my Sovereign Twenty with a mode edge. I love this hat but I had to have the sweat replaced. It looked fine when I got it but began to disintegrate as soon as I conditioned it. Oh well, for $100 plus the sweat replacement, another great hat lives on.
This full sun pic depicts the true color more closely.
Bump to a thread with some awesome hats....
This one makes my heart glad
Vintage Sovereign Twenty with trolley.
Beautiful felt and finish.
Stetson Twenty The Sovereign Mode Edge
Amazing hat. Felt compares with the best Dobbs and Knox Twenties I've handled.
