Stetson 4X Stetson Open Road

This hat was made by the John B. Stetson Company.  It is their iconic Open Road style, with a thin ribbon, narrow binding and a fedora flanged brim. This one has the model name marked on the reorder tag rather than the sweatband, is made of heavier weight modern felt, has the Stetson Authentic X hologram sticker still on the sweatband, and is a 4X quality felt.  While the reorder tag puts the brim at 2-3/4″, it measures out to 2-7/8″.
