    Classic Retro - 5/13/2014
    By: from New Jersey

    The problem with being a lover of quality hats is that you never think you have too many! If this is problem you have or share a similar feeling then, Stetson's remake of the Stratoliner is the one for you! A soft hand and lighter feel of rabbit fur makes this a great choice to add to or start your fedora collection! Although it's not like to original created in the 40s, it's close enough to make you feel you have a quality hat! Be advised; once you purchase and wear the compliments and looks you get will let you know resistance to quality hat wearing is futile!

    Great but hat band is tragic - 1/5/2014

    Before Harrison Ford came along I've been fly fishing in a fedora. T bought a Three Forks hat. I cut the band off in front of my daughter. She thought I'd lost my mind. I went to Handcock's and purchased an inch grosgrain ribbon. I copied the band and bow from one of my old hats. Now it is a real Fedora. The quality is great, and I'm going to order a stratus model and add a navy grosgrain ribbon. Now we're talkin' a classic Fedora used astream and with a suit.

    Gorgeous, True-to-Size Fedora - 9/7/2013

    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!
