ROBERT BENCHLEY's STETSON "THREE-WAY" HAT

I didn't think it went much beyond a magazine ad, which occasionally shows up on eBay:

The surprise was in finding that the hat box lid's interior had three photos of - and text by (?)- Benchley.

Sorry so blurry!

Lost and Found: American Treasures from the New Zealand Film Archive has that great 1920 short showing how Stetson hats were (are?) made.
