True to the hats of the day, this vintage reproduction is crafted from genuine rabbit-fur felt and sports all the proper trimmings, including a grosgrain ribbon band and a grosgrain-bound brim. The authenticity is visible inside as well, with a silky satin lining and a genuine leather sweatband. A reproduction Stratoliner pin puts a finishing touch on this 1940s icon. Men's fedora hat in lovat. Garland, TX.Sizes: 7, 7⅛, 7¼, 7⅜, 7½, 7⅝. 4"H crown, 2½W brim.

"I love this hat so much that I bought it in three colors. Currently, Orvis sells this hat only in the beautiful grey color which Stetson calls "Caribou". The Orvis description says the color is lovat, but it is grey, not greenish grey. This hat is stylish, extremely comfortable, and true-to-size. It is a reproduction of the famous Stratoliner fedora from the 1940's. It includes a reproduction of the original Stratoliner hat pin. Only ten Stratoliner aircraft were ever made and were the first commercial aircraft to offer passengers a pressurized cabin. Only one of these aircraft still exists and is on display at the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum at the Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia. Buy and enjoy a stylish piece of history!"

Review 3 for Stetson® Stratoliner Fedora
November 24, 2012
"I love hats and have been purchasing one a year for about 6 years and I love the orvis selection and this hat is great. I love the look and it fits well. Very comfortable. The hat is very well constructed so it should last a lifetime."
