    Lovely & rare Stetson Open Road STYLE (i.e.- no where identified as an "Open Road" -also note unbound brim!) in A+ shape w/ the original box (also in very good condition).
    A SNUG size 7 1/4.
    I got it, vainly hoping it to be running as a large(r) 7 1/4 -perhaps a hat that would easily stretch to my crew cut 7 3/8 bean... but nogojoe. And I am sorely disappointed.
    It is a bit shrunken, I suspect. I cannot subject this one to the rack. It came from Ga. in the original box. The sweat seems sound & supple, w/o missing stitches, behind it a cellulose (?) vapor barrier, which may help to establish a date. Looks near to new, IMO. From Johnson & Glass in Albany Georgia.

    This would've been an ultimate summer hat for me. But maybe there is another Rustic out there who might still enjoy it.

    $100 shipped anywhere in the lower 48. I'll ship internationally as well, for added postal charges, 'natch.

    PP only

    Please PM me here if interested.

    THANKS!

    Nice one Rick I have a VS Milan Open Road that I wear all the time. Would love to get a Stetson version too some day.

    Hey Rick,

    I'm the auction winner. I wear a true 7-1/4. Think it can be stretched just enough to bring it up to true size? If not by me, maybe Optimo can do it?

    They sized up a vintage Milan for me but the sweatband needed to be replaced.
