    I love it in Wisconsin. Too bad it is perilously cold in the winter. Still, to me it is heavenly four months per year.
    I guess it's because my Mom was from there, and was a farmer's daughter, but I consider Wisconsin and people like its people to be the backbone of America.

    Yup, a few months per year it's livable. I was born and raised in Milwaukee. I left at the age of 17 when I joined the Air Force. 22 yrs later ended up in Austin, TX. And here I stay. I go back every few years to WI for a visit. ;)

    Jack- what is the felt like on the BOTP? More western, or more Royal?

    I am starting my research on the BOTP as I love the open crown and flat brim. Doing an internet search comes back with lots of hats with varying creases and punches.

    No sure that I needed another of this style, but the price was right:

  7. It was a 3X & a BOTP is a big hat so they're not going to be soft. So it can have a decent hand to the finish but it will be Western stiff. I had to return it to the seller as the size was misrepresented even though still tagged. What made it rare was it was a Stetson BOTP made under contract by Akubra.

    Unfortunately the BOTP name gets applied to a lot of hats these days with large brims regardless of their other specs or dimensions.

    “Need” is such a broadly defined word...

    I'm waiting for the Stetson Open Road Royal Deluxe in sage. I already love my OR in 6X (I really like the western felt) and I'm quite certain the RD texture will also suit me.

    *Update- I received the wrong hat in the mail- a Stetson Stratoliner in sage. But oh boy, what a beauty! It's not what I ordered or want at this time and will return for the Open Road, but I was glad to see the color and feel the Royal texture.

    Next time I'm in the market for a proper fedora, the Stratoliner will be at the top of the list for consideration.
