Vintage Stetson Royal Deluxe Indented Flat Top Fedora Hat Grey Size 7
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful Stetson “flat top” grey fedora mens hat made in the “Royal Stetson Deluxe” quality. The hat most likely dates probably to the 1970s and is made with an indented flat top. The Royal Stetson Deluxe line was a level better than the Royal line. The lining is stamped “Royal Stetson De Luxe” and the sweatband is gold stamped “Royal De Luxe Stetson” and “John B. Stetson Company” under the company logo. The retailer’s name “Henri Henri” is stamped on the sweatband - Henri Henri is a venerable millinery retailer in Montreal. The foil label at the back sweatband states that it is a size “7 56 cm”, which is a size medium - the style of the size tag provides a clue as to the age of the hat. It measures 22” around the sweatband and 7 1/2” by 6 1/4” across the opening. The brim measures 2 3/8” in width at the front and back and 2 in width at the sides and the crown has a height of 4 1/8”. It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear or soiling - there is a slight shadow around the base of the crown, almost as if a wider band was originally there and then replaced with the narrow ribbon now in place. Great looking hat…..nice style and colour….
