40s-50s VINTAGE ROYAL STETSON WHIPPET FEDORA HAT 71/4 Picture(s) and Description:
1940's - 1950's VINTAGE ROYAL STETSON WHIPPET FEDORA HAT NEAR MINT! The Whippet, a lightweight, high-quality fur-felt fedora with a grosgrain-trimmed 3" brim and a 4 3/4" crown accented with a 1 1/2" grosgrain ribbon hatband. This hat has luxuriously soft fur felt in a light brown color, with golden-brown 1 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon Hatband with matching ribbon on the brim. The Wind Trolley Cord with button at the end is still with the hat! Inside, the 4 1/2 crown is lined in shimmering ivory satin, with the Royal Stetson Whippet insignia in red, black and gold, and the sweatband is of gold-embossed tan leather. The red-on-ecru data label under the sweatband says it's a size 71/4. Dent is 1 1/2" The sweatband is 2" and is Gold Stamped: Herbert Smart Clothing Co. , Macon, Ga underneath the name. There is also John B. Stetson Co. Gold Stamped with the Royal Stetson Logo next to it. If you look at the edge of the sweatband you will see some light wear on the edges. This is the ONLY defect I see in this beautiful hat! I just can't believe how well this hat looks for being 60-70 years old. It is amazing. The felt is soft and clean, with no holes, stains, or moth bites. It is also very pliable and you can shape it any way you want and it will stay. This must be why Bing Crosby wore a Stetson Whippet Hat. He looked good, the hat feels so good you don't know you are wearing it. Oh, if only I didn't need the money. This hat is sooooooo sweet! I do not have the original Stetson Hat Box. I do have an ADAM oval hat box that this hat will fit in if you would like to have it with the hat. Please let me know with your order. I would prefer paypal as your payment within 3 days. If payment is not received in 7 days I will relist the hat and you will lose this beautiful hat. Good luck bidding and God bless. God bless our troops and their families. US BIDDING ONLY. THANK YOU.
