This is a beautiful quality Stetson homburg styled fedora hat in excellent condition. The lining bears the “Imperial Stetson” mark and the sweatband is gold stamped with “Imperial Stetson” and with ”Aquanized Stetson” as well as with the retailer’s name “Henri Henri Ltée 289 rue Ste Catherine Est Montreal”. Henri Henri is a venerable Montreal institution, still in business today. It changed its address from 289 to 255 in 1962. The gold foil label at the back sweatband states that it is a size “1/4” meaning 7 1/4. It measures 22 3/8” around the sweatband and 6 1/2” by 7 7/8” across the opening. It is in excellent condition - very clean, it looks to have seen practically no use and was well stored over the years. The Imperial Stetson was the second highest quality that Stetson produced, comparable to 3X beaver felt. This is a beautfiul quality Stetson dress hat, easily dated to prior 1962. Nice hat to find in such nice condition in a size 7 1/4!
