Nice one, and looks to be a Laloo style 100. Is it a 3.5” brim? Another great snag, looks hardly worn!
Thanks man! It's a 3.25 brim and 5.5 crown. It looks to have had a simple center crease for most of it's life and the felt is clean! Nice smooth hand to it. It's a nice felt to poke, seems a lot easier to shape compared to other 100's from this time period. I have a Beaver 100 ( Im about to sell) and it is stiffer than this one. Amazing how they compare.

It’s a little shy to be a Laloo clone, but still a great 100 either way. Thanks for the comparison, the side by side thread could use a similar post with a few of your excellent lids… no pressure ;)

Roger that. When I finish my big move I’ll be sure to commit a bit more to posts on here. A majority of my hats are now packed away till I’m a west coaster in about 3 weeks. I have a catalogue or two I need to photograph and post as well!

Oh man, I nearly forgot about your upcoming journey! Haha my bad man, I guess that move should take precedent, but TFL is a super close second LOL. Congrats again on the lid and move, we’ll wait patiently hear about your new digs!

1960s version with 5 1/2” open crown and 2 5/8” bound brim. No mention of Open Road on the hat, but that’s the style. At 6 7/8 the slightly smaller proportions look great to my eye. No box with this one and no labels behind the sweatband.

It might be from the 1960s, but it has great clay-like felt that is a joy to work with. It easily accept a dry crease on a fence post.
