For a while now, Stetson Whippets have been pretty popular and it is easy to see why. The dimensions are classic and the moderate ribbon width and wide brim binding make a very attractive hat. This fedora is tan in color and features a 1 1/2 inch ribbon and bow that is light brown and shows a little discoloration. The brim binding is golden tan and is similarly discolored. The liner appears to have been cleaned by the previous owner and isnot attached to the hat in any way, it is simply tucked behind the leather sweatband. The leather sweatband is quite supple but shows its age. There are some surface cracks in the leather but it is not falling apart. The thread holding the two ends of the sweatband together is mostly gone and the threads holding the sweatband to the hat are loose (though it isn't to the point of falling out). The felt is actually pretty clean for the age of the hat with the only discoloration being around the previous crease. The felt is also wearing pretty thin near the pinch. There isn't a hole thereyet but it is getting pretty close. While thisis not a pristine example of a vintage fedora I think it is far from being relegated to a yard-work hat. I have gotten countless compliments on thisone and I think it will be best suited for those that like the Johhny Depp look. When the felt is creased and on your head it looks fine with casual wear.
