Crafted by hand in the U.S.A., the Open Road Straw Hat combines high-quality 100% Shantung straw with a firm finish for the ultimate in warm-weather comfort and style. With its western-style crown and 2 ¾” bound-edge brim, the Open Road Straw easily transitions from country to city to beach—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).
The Open Road Straw features a genuine leather sweatband and a 4 ¼” crown outfitted with a satin hat band.
