It's no secret. Cleveland, Ohio — once a prime example of major industry, expansion and prosperity — has struggled.
Many communities that once thrived are now mere shells of themselves, and it's not uncommon to see empty sidewalks, abandoned factories and boarded-up windows.
One town, however — it seems — has bounced back, and in a big way. The Waterloo Arts and Entertainment district is as alive as it ever has been, and all due to one thing — the community's absolute dedication to independent businesses.
In fact, the district claims 100 percent independence. You won't find a chain, big box or major franchise anywhere.
It's inspiring, really. A town decimated by the exit of major industry returns stronger by focusing on developing close-knit community and individual expression.
Waterloo, the hat, is similar in that way. It's resilient, but not by being hard. It's a traditional men's fedora, made with fine Australian wool, and finished in a soft felt that's stiff enough to not get pushed around, but flexible enough to roll with the punches, take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.
The Waterloo features a 1 1/4" black grosgrain band.
Brim: 2 1/2" Crown: 4 1/4"

Great gift to my brother!
I made this hat a gift to my brother, he is always admiring my hats I buy from Two Roads, so I surprised him for his birthday. He simply loves it. Very stylish looking hat. I am never disappointed with my purchases. I own several hats now from Two Roads. I always receive compliments when I wear them.
