You guys are just killing with these......I would soooo love to find ANY German Stetson in my size let alone one of these Strats..........
All I can say is WOW!!!
Here is a sort of Stratoliner/OR clone.....though much more a Strat.....with the crown blocking and ribbon treatment. It is NOS and simply flawless.....
Only differance is it only has a 2 1/8 inch brim.
In real life it is very much a medium grey/ blue.
Out side the simply awsome heavy gold liner more often associated with the 50's, the sweat and $13.95 price scream mid-sixties.......5 1/2 inch open crown, this one is NOT a factory crease version.....
Mark, Thank you! Mayser made these under license.
In honor of taco shell brim week, I've posted this early edition Stratoliner in the classifieds.
I have enjoyed reading your input in an effort to help with his stain. Good stuff. I'm learning here. Tell me what you think of this idea: blending some chalk powdered colors and applying with a q-tip? A temporary fix maybe? I am just dreaming here. You da man. Talcum powder to a white hat?
They would have the same effect of the colored "finishing/filler" powders have that the hat companies use......somewhat to very temporary, depending on how they are worked into the felt. Stetson still uses a LOT of this powder to even out the color on their light grey hats......gets all over any black suits you wear with it and dare to touch with the hat.....learned that the hard way with my tux......does have the added benifit of giving a softer hand to the felt though.
M: Thanks. Interesting subject.
Early 50's O.P.S. tagged Royal Stetson Stratoliner thin ribbon in Peacock green. Thank you very much @BobHufford , I'm loving it already!
Boy that’s a nice one. That color is marvelous!!
and in a quite rare color
Bob and I were talking about a couple of hats and he commented about a greenish cast. I lost track of which hat he was referring to. When I opened the box, I was both surprised and pleased! There are a couple of other Peacocks on the Lounge and one or both were Stetsons made in Germany. Yes, I am pleased with the hat and the unique color. Thanks again @BobHufford
