Thanks, David!What a hat! Rare ribbon treatment for Stetson, I think. Looks great on you—good one for this time of year.
I dig the bow, too.
Nevertheless, on many of our vintage fedoras I’ve never understood the long stitches that crisscross the middle boxed pleat. I know it’s a decorative accent, but it seems a bit hokey to me. But still, I dig it because it’s part of its historic styling and charm. I got this cool fedora from Brent off eBay.
