The iconic Stetson Open Road represents the ultimate mix of Western heritage and modern versatility. A proprietary wool felt blend gives the Open Road a substantial feel and stiffness, which offers a more secure fit and helps it retain its shape come rain or shine. With its western-style crown and 2 ¾” bound-edge brim, the Open Road easily transitions from country to city, and looks equally sharp on a woman or a man.
Introduced in 1937, the Open Road was originally sold with an open crown, which could then be creased to the customer’s liking. Since 1948, it has been finished with a traditional, hand-pressed cattleman crease, and has been worn by modern pioneers and trailblazers ever since, from artists and outlaws to Presidents (including, most notably, LBJ, who was rarely photographed on his Texas ranch without his Open Road).

How do I find my hat size?
Take a measuring tape and place it at the back of your head. Next, draw both sides of the tape to the front, just above the ears and over the eyebrows, bringing it together roughly in the middle of your forehead. Please be careful not to pull the tape measure too tight. You can now use a mirror to read off your head circumference.
We recommend rounding up the number you see to the next full centimetre (e.g. round 57.5 cm up to 58 cm).
