    Incredible fedora, and perfectly shaped! One of your best...and that’s saying something.

    Exceptional fedora! The excellent condition is trumped by the felt hue and appointments. Love this hat!

    The Flagship fedoras with the bigger ribbon treatment are just so classy looking on the head. The proportions of the tall block with a slight taper at top create an creased crown that will take many options.

    Congrats sir. I look forward to seeing it out on your hat adventures over the upcoming years.

    Home, coffee and strolling about in a Stetson. This is a 50's Clear Beaver small brim. Lovely hat.

    Thank you Eric. I am quite over the moon with this one. I have admired yours these past couple years. Did not dream I’d find one for myself.

    Stefan, I sometimes find hats from Otto Matt but all in small sizes. I have no information on the production facilities. Some hats I find are of name brands. Here is a post a made back in 2017

    Thank you! Yes the inside (liner, sweatband) is special.
