As I've repeatedly said, this is a theory I'm working on, but at least it has some basis in fact. Your theory about retailers having different liners to choose from may be correct, but I'm not aware of any evidence to support that. If and when I see hats with the Renowned Since phrase that are clearly beyond the Stetson transitional period, then I will gladly abandon my theory.I haven't looked at size tags yet, partly because I haven't found enough hats to make a population of hats to study. Just identified several more last night. Will take your advice to look at size tags, where they still exist.
