Late 1800s / early 1900s Stetson Montecristi Panama Hat

Now on eBay! LINK

This hat was made in the early part of the 20th century, or possibly the late 1800s. I’ve never seen another hat with this super early John B. Stetson crest. It’s extremely old and unusual.
The hat is a very fine montecristi panama, see the detail picture with a penny for scale for an idea of just how fine. There are three breaks in the straw in the brim, at the back, but unlike the other early Stetson Montecristi, they don’t show very badly, especially when worn. The hat has a classic optimo blocking, and the brim is finely backwoven. THe sweatband has some of the finest stitching I’ve seen and is extremely wide. It is still nice and supple. The original owner’s initials, “ECA” are stamped opposite the Stetson logo.
Size: 7-1/4
Brim Width: 2-1/8″
Ribbon Width: 7/8″

The Rayland Bathing Suit

Now on eBay! LINK

These trunks were made in the early part of the 20th century, 1920s or prior. They are wool, with a button fly. They have a flapped key / coin pocket. Originally there would have been some kind of top- probably striped, that would have gone along with these. The belt loops are a different color and type of wool- I wonder if they were added later? Seeing as they’re 80 to 100 years old, they do show some age, but I don’t see any stains or moth bites.

Waist (side to side): 17″ (doubled = 34″)
Inseam: 6″
Outseam: 14-1/2″

Vintage Stetson Boss of the Plains

This one probably dates from the 1920s. Typical boss of the plains crown. May have had a curled brim edge at one point, but if that’s the case, it’s long since been cut off. Textured leather sweatband, no lining. Wide ribbon. Deep imprints. No. 1 Quality, a western designation of the time. Very high quality fur felt.
