    Taking into consideration the comments here and my original "on the fence" position, I've also got a Royal Deluxe in Sage in the mail. I may keep both the RD and the 6X; I'll give them both a few days of consideration as I think they both have a role in the rotation. Either way, I'm excited to evaluate them side by side and will share my thoughts next week.

    I have a hat very similar to yours in the queue now and can't wait to get it on my head. Thanks for sharing.

    Be careful, Ken. They'll be able to look up your kilt.

    I'm sure it comes in handy for corn dodgers as well.

    Typically I am a pretty flat hat guy these days. But hasn't always been that way.

    Still too hot for much wearing but not too hot for some steaming, brushing and shaping in anticipation.

    Hiya, folks! I know it's been a while since I've been on this thread, but now I'm back! Here's a picture of my ideal hat.
    It was formerly made by the Jackson Hole Hat Company, but had to be discontinued because they could no longer obtain the extra-large hat bodies required for such a massive style. IIRC, it had an 8-inch crown and a 6-1/2 inch brim! (My ideal hat would have a 7-inch brim and a 7-inch crown. Buckarette.jpg Also, in place of the elk horn button on the hat band, my ideal hat would have conchos studded with turquoise all the way around! (I don't ask for much, do I? :D)) D Bar J Hatters in Las Vegas has indicated that they MIGHT be able to make a hat like that--BUT--it would probably wind up costing over $1,000 (at least with the 7-inch brim and 7-inch crown I mentioned)! Since I'm retired and on Social Security, that's obviously out of the ballpark, so to speak! :(

    Since the period prior to the 70's, and especially prior to WWII, the market for really BIG hats has shrunk considerably. This trend was shrunk even further by the influence of country superstar George Strait, who has consistently chosen to wear more conservative cowboy hat styles with 4-inch brims. HOWEVER--there are still some vendors who carry hat styles with 5-inch brims. One such vendor is Solano's Boot and Western Wear, who devote an entire page of their website to such styles. For those who may be interested, here's the link: https://solanoswesternwear.com/hats/felt/5_inch_brim.
