What colors of Premiers do you already have, Brent?
The Stetson Royal De Luxe Premier (open crown) hats are quite nice for a modern hat. I definitely consider them nicer than my my Campdrafts; although, I like the bigger brims on the Akubra. I haven’t had any problem with either hat holding a shape. I wouldn’t consider the standard Royal, but then you already said you’re getting an open crown hat. Stetson does have some quality control issues, but I think the open crown hats aren’t bad, and some are very nice. My Akubra hats are stiffer, harder, and not as pleasing to wear, but they are bulletproof.
