There's the 7x Clear Beaver thread,
there's the Beaver 100 thread,
and there's the "standard" 100 thread..
25s seem to have exploded in popularity and availability lately, so I think that they deserve their own thread. Western, OR, OR-style, or otherwise, post everything you've got on the 25, and be sure to post those liners and sweats.

Directed to the Chief and Deputy, what makes it a Corral? I didn't see the name on JtL's sweat. Is it on the reorder tags?

The Miller Stockman catalogues (that have been posted in other threads) offer up the Stetson 25 -- with a 2-cord ribbon, a raw edge, and similar brim dimensions -- as the "Corral."

Thanks, Jimmy.

Fedoralover, I think we need to see more of that one as well - it looks to be in great shape. Sweat and liner shots requested!

Here they are. I like the little cowboy pin this one has, you don't see them that often. I think this hat is probably from the 60s, but others here would know better than me. I found it at Goodwill for $12.50. Almost like new.

Great Goodwill find! I would think sixties... mine shares the same liner and sweatband but has the newer black size tag... no wind trolley and no little man on mine either.

Stetson 25 Wide Ribbon

Just received this Stetson 25 -- the only 25 I have ever seen with a wide ribbon. The felt on this lid is beautifully soft, and has that "molds like clay" quality. Open crown is 5 1/2" and the brim is just over 2 3/4". The oil silk liner protector is still intact. Overall, this lid is in beautiful condition.

The wide ribbon raises the question as to whether this particular ribbon was a replacement. I tend to think not, although there is no way to be sure. What I do know is that there are no signs that there was ever a thin ribbon on this hat -- the felt is pristine underneath the ribbon, and it doesn't appear that a ribbon has been added to cover any stains, etc. The liner appears to have its original sewing intact -- no signs that it was ever removed and replaced. Perhaps most importantly, the ribbon is expertly done (a la factory quality) and matches the color of the felt beautifully. The ribbon is 16 ligne (just under 1 1/2").

One way or the other, I am really struck by how this ribbon looks on this hat. I would date this one to circa 1950.
