This vintage fedora was made in the 1940s by the John B. Stetson company. It is an early version of their “Flagship” model. It has a double-stitched pressed underwelt brim edge, and a rust colored ribbon. The sweatband has an early style “stars” crest. The felt designation is worded “Royal Stetson DeLuxe”, instead of the usual (later) phrasing “Royal DeLuxe Stetson”. It has a narrow, unreeded sweatband.

Size: 7-1/4
Brim Width: 2-3/4″
Crown Height: 5-1/2″
Ribbon Width: 1-1/2″
