Stetson 10X straw hat Grant

Stetson Grant 10X straw hat: my best and my first straw hat, very light, strong, water proof, right for summer and the sun.

A dream became true

How much I dreamed to wear a hat like this, by an icon U.S.A. brand and all that it represents for a lot of people.

My first Stetson straw hat: my best

I dreamed a lot of time to have a hat with this style, and now this little big dream became true.

It has been my first Stetson straw hat, and first made in the U.S.A.

Shipping and custom charges

The shipping cost and customs charges make the price double, but so it was.

At least for my 2nd purchase, the straw hat Stetson Rancher, I saved some money with the USPS (United States Postal Service) shipping, instead of the private carrier where the cost is higher.

I remember, for my next purchase in the U.S.A.

Notary Public Certified Made in U.S.A.

I received with the hat, the Notary Public document that certified the item was made in the U.S.A.:

Sworn to before me this…

State of Kansas


What's mean for me this hat

For me the Stetson Grant hat is amazing, I love the crown, the dent, the crease, the brim: is really ok, a pleasure to keep.

10X straw makes a good fabric texture, comfortable to wear even because is stiff, but very thin and strong, light to wear, and made to last.

This hat means a lot for me, about Stetson hats, and cowboy hats in general, I began to read lot of time ago, on american novels.

Means to wear a hat that belong to the story.

Fluoresin coated

The flouresin coated, gives to the hat a solid resistance, and it keeps an important transpiration that must never be lacking in a good hat, whatever material it is.

I think this is the same treatment given to the felt hat.
I presume the stiff straw hat has the similar treatment of felt hat about waterproof and oil resistant.

This is the description of the treatment made in Stetson felt hat Batson Cattleman, and the word flouresin I didn't find anywhere: perhaps is a kind of say about fluoroproducts, as written on AsahiGuard website (
I didn't find the word "flouresin" anywhere, but I think is about fluoroproducts; these are the tags of Stetson Batson Cattleman felt hat

Why I purchased Stetson 10X straw hat Grant

If I purchased the Stetson hat Grant, is because I'm crazy for the crown in this way, and so I purchased even the Stetson Rancher than has the crown a little higher, in the Stetson straw hat, if I don't wrong, the highest.

The hatband

The hatband of Stetson straw hat Grant is much better of that Rancher: first is in leather, bi-color light brown and clearer, with little metallic insert, rhomboid studs: a very thin hat band but elegant and well done, a little touch of style.

The size

I purchased this hat with the same size of felt hat, and results little tight, is not uncomfortable, absolutely, but just a little tight.

And given then every cloud has a silver lining, I found out it keeps the sweat very well, and even though the leather sweatband than not adsorbs the sweat but it wets and stop, the little tight size in this situation returns me very useful, even while working hard.

For the sweatband I prefer the cotton fabric

I would like a lot a different material for the sweatband, a strong cotton fabric that helps to absorb the sweat and easy to clean and dry; but this hat so is.

Stetson 10X straw hat Grant has been my first experience with the straw hat, and I was looking for a light hat but stiff and weather-resistant, something could be spot-on for the hot seasons.

And this is right, is what I wanted.

Stetson Grant straw hat: my satisfaction

I like a bunch the Stetson Grant straw hat, I'm really crazy for this kind of crown, sure I will purchase another felt hat with the crown so high and the crease and the dent so strong.

I like a bunch this kind of hats

I appreciate a lot this kind of hats, one of the classic cowboy hats, for me at least than I always had a lot of admiration for the historical brand like Stetson, picturing the importance for people that wear this hats, and the hat with this crown so high, with the fender bender on the dent side, and the crease as a great furrow in the earth, is my meat.

About Stetson hats

“I listen about Stetson reading Jim Thompson's novels, watching U.S.A. film where actors with mask face wore a big hat with wide brim and high crown.”

But after all, in the real documentary about ordinary people and their work: sheriffs, cowboy, carpenters, men in festive clothes with starched jeans, rodeo, and so.

Take a look to Stetson western straw hats.

How much I dreamed to wear a hat like this, by an icon U.S.A. brand and all that it represents for a lot of people.
Wear the cowboy hat became for me a great satisfaction that makes me better: that's all.

So keep well your hat&stay in touch.
