The Limited Edition Stratoliner elevates one of our most iconic dress silhouettes with Royal quality felt, which is light in weight and has a distinctly soft and supple feel. The Limited Edition also comes with a special edition airplane hat pin and 2" premier roan leather sweatband, and, like all Stratoliners, features a 4 ½" teardrop crown and 2 ½" bound edge brim.
An icon of the Stetson brand since 1940, the Stratoliner fedora takes its inspiration—and its name—from an aircraft that helped kickstart the golden age of innovation. The same year, Boeing introduced the first-ever commercial airplane with a pressurized cabin. Called the Stratoliner, it was able to reach new altitudes, opening the skies to a whole new breed of traveler. This called for a new breed of hat: The Stetson Stratoliner, a sleek, lighter-weight take on the traditional fedora that featured a rakish, angled crown that suggested a man—or a plane—on the move.
The hat would go on to become a go-to for the Rat Packers and Mad Men of the jet set era, and today, it lends classic style to any occasion, with its versatile, streamlined profile and a brim that can look casual and cool when snapped up, or snapped down for a dressed-up and dapper look.
