Rated 2 out of 5 by spender222 Runs large per Stetson's own guidelines
I have ordered this hat twice now for my husband and both have been too large. We measured as required and read the reviews. Still doesn't fit. Sorry to have to $end thi$ back once again. We're not going to try another mail order from LLB on this.
We have ordered three other similar hats online in a simple "medium" size and they all have fit perfectly. They happened to be cheaper hats and maybe that had something to do with sizing.
Stetson's recommended sizing just doesn't add up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BSprout Just what he wanted.
My husband wanted a new hat to wear instead of his stetson cowboy hats. He has always been happy with Stetson so was set on this one. It is the same size as any of his other stetson products and the color matches his other silverbelly hats. He is very happy with it.

Absolutely the best full brimmed hat that I ever owned! I have a couple other Stetson hats that are very nice but this hat has them beat in my opinion. The fit(71/8 in my case) is perfect, but with all of the compliments I have received while wearing it I soon may require a larger size! LOL

The fit and finish of this hat is of the highest quality. I ordered the "Silverbelly" thinking it would be a grey, and on first inspection it does look grey until you put it next to a grey suit and it is actually more light beige than grey. After reading Stetson's instructions for caring for the had I wish there was a hat box for the hat. At the price of the hat a few dollars more for the box would be well worth it.
I will probably but the brown one also.

When I visited the L.L. Bean store in Maine in June I was looking for a hat. I bought a grey Moose River hat. Liked it so much I ordered this one as soon as it was in stock. Best two hats I have ever owned. The felt is sturdy, the fit is perfect. The style is perfect for both casual and formal wear.

I am loving this hat. It is packaged with great care and attention. The fit was slightly too big (using the measurement guidelines), so I had it replaced with the next smaller size. Perfect fit and no hassle with LL Bean. The felt quality is impressive and luxurious. I really like the brim width and stiffness....allows me to turn the brim up or down to look smart.

Ordered a silver belly size 7 1/2 and had to return it for next larger size. The first one was excellent except for size, the 7 5/8 arrived today and doesn't seem to be the same quality, liner seems to be falling out, a few crimps in the felt, and no LL Bean name in the hat band as was in the first one.
Guess I'll give it a try in the light Oregon rain tonight -

I ordered the silverbelly in a 7-5/8. It fits well, and I get compliments from colleagues who think of themselves as sharp dressers. I put the hat on the hatjack for a few hours to fix the shape a bit (my skull is XL and oblong). Two days it arrived, it was spattered by several drops of spaghetti sauce as a waitress packed up the remnants of my wife's meal. The hat cleaned up wonderfully after being dabbed with abundant seltzer water. Good hat.

I bought this hat as a replacement for one just like it I have worn for 20+ years. Still love it.
