Jeff Dyer, Store Manager of DelMonico Hatter of New Haven, CT shows how to shape an “Open Crown” hat. Hats with an open crown are hats that are shipped to you without a pre-determined shape (or “block”) of their crown, so you are able to shape them however you want. Three crown styles are shown on the same hat: “Center Dent”, “Open Road” and “Teardrop”.
The hat shown in the video is a Stetson Premiere Stratoliner Hat.
